It was 60 years ago that “My Fair Lady” emerged on the silver screen featuring Audrey Hepburn as Eliza Doolittle and Rex Harrison as Henry Higgins.

In celebration Magic Lantern Cinemas in Ketchum is hosting two special showings so fans can relive it on the big screen. The movie will be shown at 5 p.m. Sunday, Feb. 4, and at 5 p.m. Monday, Feb. 5. The showings will include the original overture from the Broadway show and a brief intermission during the three-hour screening.

“My Fair Lady” won eight Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor. And it carved out a place for itself in the American Film Institute’s lists of “100 Years,” “100 Movies” and “Greatest Movie Musicals.”

The film, based on George Bernard Shaw’s 1913 stage play “Pygmalion,” elicits chuckles amidst the drama as it revolves around a phonetics teacher’s attempt to teach a poor young flower seller with a strong Cockney accent to speak so well he can pass her off as a duchess at a ball.

It features a host of memorable tunes by Lerner and Lowe,” including “Wouldn’t It Be Loverly,” “On the Street Where You Live” and “Get Me to the Church on Time.”
