MARCH 17 (ST. PATRICK’S DAY) & 20

THE QUIET MAN (1952)

Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with the classic love story, set in Ireland, that earned director John Ford his fourth Academy Award. John Wayne plays a former American boxer who falls in love with fiery redhead Maureen O’Hara, but her obstinate brother (Victor McLaglen) stands in their way.  Wayne and McLaglen come to blows in a rousing climax peppered with witty trash talk and grudging respect. ("Your widow—me sister—she could’ve done a lot worse.”) Rated G

 

 

MARCH 24 & 27

THE GODFATHER PART II (1974)

The continuation of the Corleone family saga, and the first sequel to win the Oscar® for Best Picture. Al Pacino was nominated for his performance as Michael (“Keep your friends close, but your enemies closer”) and Robert DeNiro won Best Supporting Actor as the young Vito. Famed acting coach Lee Strasberg plays the grandfatherly but ruthless Hyman Roth. ("I didn’t ask who gave the order…because it had nothing to do with business!”) Rated R

 

 

MARCH 31 & APRIL 3

THE PHILADELPHIA STORY (1940)

A classic romantic comedy with A-list movie stars. Katharine Hepburn is Tracy Lord, a Philadelphia socialite whose ex-husband (Cary Grant) shows up on the eve of her wedding. James Stewart won a Best Actor Oscar® for his performance as a journalist assigned to cover the event. Hepburn sparkles as the vivacious heiress who learns some surprising lessons about herself and the men in her life. (“Thetime to make up your mind about people is never.”) Not Rated

 

APRIL 7 & 10

THE BLUES BROTHERS (1980)

Music, comedy, and manic car chases through the streets of Chicago, all rolled into one 80’s cult classic. Original Saturday Night Live cast members John Belushi and Dan Aykroyd star as Jake and Elwood Blues, brothers who are getting the band back together to save the orphanage where they grew up. Filled with show-stopping numbers from such musical icons as Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and James Brown. (“We’re on a mission from God.”) Rated R

 

APRIL 14 & 17

WILLY WONKA & THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY (1971)

The ORIGINAL movie version of Roald Dahl’s cherished children’s book, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, has an Oscar-nominated score that includes the hit song “Candy Man.” Gene Wilder plays an eccentric candy maker who opens his mysterious and magical factory to a few golden ticket winners. Wilder is full of fun as Wonka, a man whose confectionary imagination is matched only by his sense of mischief. (“The suspense is terrible…I hope it’ll last!”) Rated G

 

 

APRIL 21 (EASTER) & 24

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (1952)

#1 on the American Film Institute’s list of the greatest movie musicals of all time, this delightful comedy teams Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor with newcomer Debbie Reynolds in the role that made her a star.  Jean Hagen received an Oscar® nomination for her performance as a squeaky-voiced silent movie queen. The scene where Kelly is singing—and dancing—in the rain is alone worth the price of admission. (“What a glorious feeling, I’m happy again…”) Rated G

 

 

APRIL 28 & MAY 1

WHEN HARRY MET SALLY (1989)

Heartwarming romantic comedy starring Billy Crystal and Meg Ryan as friends who can’t imagine being in love. He is too opinionated about male/female relationships, and thinks she is too “high maintenance.” (“‘On the side’ is a very big thing for you.”) Harry Connick, Jr. provides the songs (“It had to be you…”) anddirector Rob Reiner’s mom makes a memorable cameo appearance during the famous delicatessen scene. (“I’ll have what she’s having.”) Rated R
