Footloose (1984)(1984)
Kevin Bacon is the new kid in a small town where the locals don’t take kindly to rock music and dancing. And the girl he likes (Lori Singer) is the daughter of the town preacher (John Lithgow). Will he win them over? By the time our hero is done, everyone will be “kicking off their Sunday shoes” to the tune of such pop hits as Let’s Hear it For the Boy, Holding Out For a Hero, and of course the title song. (“Now I gotta cut loose…Footloose…”) Rated PG

Top Gun (1986)
August 6 & 9
Top Gun (1986)(1986)
A celebration of the heroism of Navy pilots that has some of the best aerial scenes ever filmed.  It’s also the movie that made Tom Cruise a star.  The soundtrack album, with songs by Kenny Loggins and Berlin, including the Academy Award-winning Take My Breath Away, went platinum 9 times.  Kelly McGillis co-stars as a flight instructor romantically drawn to the reckless “Maverick” (Cruise).  (“I feel the need…the need for speed!”) Rated PG

Jurassic Park
August 13 & 16
Jurassic Park(1993)
Before there was a World, there was a Park.  Based on Michael Crichton’s best-selling book and directed by Steven Spielberg, this is the original film in the blockbuster series.  Billionaire John Hammond (Richard Attenborough) creates an island theme park inhabited by cloned dinosaurs and invites scientists (Sam Neill, Laura Dern) and his grandchildren to preview the attraction.  What could go wrong?  (“Welcome to Jurassic Park.”)  Rated PG-13

Smokey and the Bandit
August 20 & 23
Smokey and the Bandit(1977)
This classic action comedy was the highest grossing movie of 1977 after Star Wars. Burt Reynolds is the fun-loving trucker, Bandit, who gives runaway bride Sally Field a lift, and country singer Jerry Reed is Reynolds’ sidekick, Snowman.  Jackie Gleason plays the chronically exasperated Sheriff Buford T. Justice, the “Smokey” who is hot on Bandit’s tail. (“What we’re dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law!”) Rated PG

August 27 & 30
The hit comedy that spoofed every disaster movie cliché. The fate of an imperiled airliner depends on Ted Striker (Robert Hays), a nervous former pilot with a “drinking problem.” Ex-girlfriend Elaine (Julie Hagerty) is the flight attendant. (“There’s no reason to become alarmed… by the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?”) Gave Leslie Nielsen a whole new career as a comedic actor. (“And don’t call my Shirley.”)  Rated PG

September 3 & 6
The classic western widely considered to be Clint Eastwood’s masterpiece. He and Morgan Freeman play retired gunfighters with one last job to do. Gene Hackman is the cruel sheriff who stands in their way. Won four Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actor (Hackman). Eastwood won for directing and was nominated for actor for his haunting performance as the aging gunslinger. (“We all got it comin’, kid.”) Rated R
