10. The Gold Rush (1925)
Charlie Chaplin loves a dance-girl, Georgia Hale. She is going to accept his invitation of new year eve dinner, but never intended to let him know about it. This scene is from the famous movie, The Gold Rush, which was released in 1925. In this scene, Charlie is imagining a room full of dinner guests and entertains them with the dinner roll dance.
9. The Apartment (1960)
In this scene, Shirley MacLaine says; “Ring out the New Year, ring in the new, ring-a-ding-ding,”. It seems to be a welcome to the new year and the party is at its rock. Then, she leaves the party hall, and her boyfriend runs to Jack Lemmon. If you haven’t watched this movie, then you must.
8. Radio Days (1987)
This movie, Radio Day, was released in 1987. In this scene, the movie ends on a Times Square rooftop, where partygoers have gathered to ring in 1944. Allen is delivering the closing narrations about the voices of his past. The scene is very nice.
7. Trading Places (1983)
This Philadelphia-based movie with Eddie Murphy, Dan Akroyd and Jamie Lee Curtis came to an end with the new year eve party train, leading to Manhattan. All of the main players have taken alternative identities to fool a detective who is looking for them.
6. Sunset Boulevard (1950)
Merry New Year! I cannot ignore the 11 Oscar nominations this movie received. It is a Billy Wilder classic, starring Gloria Swanson as Norma Desmond, an aging person, seeing a failed screenwriter Joe Gillis (William Holden) as her way back to stardom. The scene reminds us a lot we have left behind in life.
5. Holiday Inn (1942)
The movie, Holiday Inn, was released in 1942. It is best remembered to introduce one of the best selling songs, “White Christmas” by Bing Crosby. But the New Year’s Eve dance by co-star Fred Astaire is much better. It creates an exciting moment.
4. When Harry Met Sally (1989)
This is one of the best new year eve scenes you must watch. The movie, When Harry Met Sally, was released in 1989. After a lifetime of being friends with benefits, Harry (Billy Crystal) has finally professed his love to Sally (Meg Ryan) in Manhattan on New Year’s Eve.
3. The Godfather: Part II (1974)
Here, Michael (Al Pacino) is trying to weed out the traitor, while Fredo (John Cazale) has made a fatal slip of the tongue during new year eve. The scene looks very nice, and it creates a romantic environment.
2. Poseidon Adventure (1972)
It is one of the most remarkable new year scenes. The death, and destruction using a Christmas tree is well filmed here. Leslie Nielsen wasn’t so lucky. I am sure you would be amazed to see this movie.
1. Boogie Nights ( 1997)
Nothing can bring down new year celebrations other than a murder or suicide. The great William H. Macy has played the role of Little Bill, an assistant director of por-n films, who is looking for his por-n star wife at a New Year’s Eve party. Will he find her? To know the answer, you must watch this movie.
