It Happened One Night (1934)(1934)
The first – and for over 40 years the only – movie to win Oscars® in all 5 of the top categories: Picture, Director, Actor, Actress and Screenplay. Frank Capra directed this quintessential romantic comedy about a wealthy socialite (Claudette Colbert) and a wise-cracking newspaperman (Clark Gable) who become unlikely travel companions. The hitchhiking scene, where Colbert schools Gable, is a classic. (“I’ll stop a car, and I won’t use my thumb!”)

Godfather, The

Director Francis Ford Coppola turned Mario Puzo’s bestselling novel about a fictional crime family into a movie classic. Winner of 3 Oscars® including Best Picture, this movie revived the career of Marlon Brando, who won Best Actor as Don Vito Corleone. Al Pacino was nominated for his star-making performance as his son Michael. Contains some of the most famous quotes in movie history. (“I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”) Rated R

Singin' in the Rain (1952)(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. Kelly’s big dance number in the rain is alone worth the price of admission. Jean Hagen received an Oscar® nomination for her performance as a squeaky-voiced silent movie star. (“I make more money than Calvin Coolidge! Put together!”)

Rear Window (1954)
March 5 & 8
Rear Window (1954)(1954)
One of the best from director Alfred Hitchcock, the “master of suspense.” James Stewart, confined to his New York City apartment with a broken leg, finds that “people watching” from his window helps to pass the time. Things heat up when he and his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) begin to suspect one of his neighbors of murder. Thelma Ritter plays Stewart’s wise-cracking, straight-talking nurse. (“Nobody ever invented a polite word for a killing yet.”)

Dirty Dancing
March 12 & 15
Dirty Dancing(1987)
You’ll have the time of your life at this crowd-pleasing film, set at a Catskill resort in the summer of 1963. Rich girl Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) finds herself attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). Primarily known for tough-guy roles, Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the part. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”) Rated PG-13
