SUNDAYS AND WEDNESDAYS MATINEE & EVENING

 
Princess Bride, The
June 4 & 7
The Princess Bride(1987)
One of the most quotable comedies ever made.  Our hero Westley (Cary Elwes) is intent on rescuing lovely Buttercup (Robin Wright) from an unhappy fate as the bride of Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon).  Mandy Patinkin co-stars.  (“My name is Inigo Montoya.  You killed my father.  Prepare to die.")  Not a big hit when it first played in theatres (“Inconceivable!”), this film has become a cult classic.  (“Have fun storming the castle!”)  Rated PG

Ferris Bueller's Day Off
June 11 & 14
Ferris Bueller's Day Off(1986)
High school senior Ferris Bueller (Matthew Broderick) takes playing hooky to a whole new level in this classic 80’s comedy from writer/director John Hughes.  Whether it’s singing from a float in a parade or crashing a fancy restaurant as Abe Frohman (“the Sausage King of Chicago”) Ferris knows how to show his friends a good time.    (“Life moves pretty fast.  If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”)  Rated PG-13

Raiders of the Lost Ark
June 18 & 21
Raiders of the Lost Ark(1981)
Maybe the greatest adventure movie ever made, directed by Steven Spielberg from an idea from George Lucas.  The film introduced audiences to archeology professor/action hero Indiana Jones, and concerns the search for the legendary lost Ark of the Covenant.  The Ark is said to contain enormous power, and “Indy” (Harrison Ford) and Marion (Karen Allen) must find it before the Nazis do.   (“Snakes.  Why’d it have to be snakes?”)  Rated PG

Blues Brothers, The
June 25 & 28
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

Jaws
July 2 & 5
Jaws(1975)
A killer shark is terrorizing the vacationers at Amity Island in this adaptation of Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel. Jaws dominated the box office throughout the summer of ‘75 and made Steven Spielberg a household name.  Composer John Williams turned two ominous notes into an Academy Award-winning score.  It’s been over 40 years and folks still think twice about going into the water.   (“You’re going to need a bigger boat.”) Rated PG

Sandlot, The
July 9 & 12
The Sandlot(1993)
This coming-of-age baseball movie was hailed by critic Roger Ebert as a summertime version of A Christmas Story. New kid in town Scotty Smalls wants to fit in, but there’s a problem: he can’t play baseball! Before summer is over, he will make new friends, and together they will confront “the Beast,” a mysterious dog with a scary reputation. Set in 1962, when trash talk on the field had its own style. (“You play ball like a girl!”) Rated PG
