Classic Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers flick lights up the Clark Center

If you dig the golden age of Hollywood, there's a Sunday afternoon screening of perhaps, Fred Astaire's and Ginger Rogers' best flick, at the Clark Center in Arroyo Grande.
When "Swing Time" opened in theatres in 1936, the country was just coming out of the Great Depression and big dance productions were all the rage.
The film features four dance routines that are each considered masterpieces of their kind.
"Never Gonna Dance" is often singled out as the famous dance partners' most profound achievement in dance.
The film's hallmark tune sung by Astaire, "The Way You Look Tonight" won the Academy Award for Best Original Song and went on to become his most successful hit record, topping the charts in the U.S. in 1936.
You can catch "Swing Time" at a special afternoon screening at the Clark Center as part of the Classic Film Series. The curtain goes up Sunday at 3pm.
