ALIENS (1986)

Written and directed by James Cameron, this sequel to the 1979 sci-fi thriller Alien is considered by many to be that rarity: a sequel that is a worthy successor to the original.  Special effects wizard Stan Winston won an Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects, which included the creation of the Alien “Queen,” one of the scariest movie creatures ever. Nominated for 7 Oscars® including Best Actress, Sigourney Weaver.  ("So who’s laying these eggs?”) Rated R

GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)

This epic love story set against the backdrop of the Civil War received 10 Academy Awards® including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress (Hattie McDaniel). Vivien Leigh won Best Actress for her classic portrayal of Scarlett O’Hara, who goes from carefree southern belle (“Fiddle-dee-dee!”) to indomitable heroine (“Tomorrow…is another day!”). Clark Gable plays Rhett Butler, the charming rogue who pursues her. (“Frankly, my dear…”) Rated G

 

JANUARY 20 & 23

HARRY POTTER & THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN (2004)

“Something wicked this way comes.” Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) returns for his third year at Hogwarts School, where escaped prisoner Sirius Black (Gary Oldman) is on the loose. Black is said to be after Harry, and complicating the situation is the presence of terrifying soul-eating creatures called dementors. To solve the mystery Harry and his friends employa magical “Marauder’s Map” of Hogwarts. (“I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.”) Rated PG

 

 

JANUARY 27 & 30

MY COUSIN VINNY (1992)

Joe Pesci stars as New York attorney Vincent LaGuardia Gambini in this classic fish-out-of-water comedy.  Two young men traveling through rural Alabama are falsely accused of murder, so who are they going to call? Cousin Vinny, of course! Fred Gwynne plays the no-nonsense judge who can’t quite figure out Vinny’s accent (“What is a YUTE?”) and Marisa Tomei won an Oscar for her performance as Vinny’s wise-cracking girlfriend. (“Oh, yeah. You blend.”) Rated R

 

 

FEBRUARY 3 & 6

OKLAHOMA! (1955)

A Rodgers & Hammerstein musical as big as the sky, and looking better than ever in a 4K digital restoration.  Set at the turn of the 20th century, this wide-screen romance stars Gordon MacRae as a cowboy who woos farm girl Shirley Jones (in her film debut). Filled with great songs like “People Will Say We’re in Love,” “Oh, What a Beautiful Morning” and, of course, the title song. (“Oklahoma, where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain!”) Rated G

 

FEBRUARY 10 & 13

CASABLANCA (1943)

One of the most romantic movies ever. This World War II drama and Best Picture Oscar® winner stars Humphrey Bogart as a cynical cafe owner who is more of a romantic than he lets on.  When long-lost loveIngrid Bergman shows up in Casablanca, sparks fly. Claude Rains is Captain Renault (“Round up the usual suspects!”) whose approach to law enforcement is, well, flexible. (“I’m shocked, SHOCKED, to find that gambling is going on in here.”) Rated PG

 

FEBRUARY 17 & 20

TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD (1962)

Gregory Peck won an Oscar® for his portrayal of Atticus Finch, a courageous lawyer defending a black man (Brock Peters) in a small southern town in the 1930’s. Atticus’s relationship with his young daughter Scout (Mary Badham) is the heart of this touching and powerful film, based on Harper Lee’s novel. (“You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it.”) No rating

 

FEBRUARY 24 & 27

FORREST GUMP (1994)

This winner of 6 Academy Awards®, including Best Picture, stars Tom Hanks as the remarkably trusting and kind-hearted Forrest Gump, who has a knack for being present for some of the most important events of the 20th century. With Sally Field as Forrest’s mother and Gary Sinise as his war-buddy “Captain Dan.” Hanks won a Best Actor Oscar® for his performance. (“Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.”) Rated PG-13

Though set at the turn of the 20th century, the music performed is modern, with covers of songs by David Bowie, Queen and Elton John. (“And you can tell everybody that this is your song…”) Rated PG-13
