Dirty Dancing
June 24 & 27
Dirty Dancing(1987)
You’ll have “the time of your life” at this romantic crowd-pleaser, set at a Catskills summer resort in 1963. Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) plays Baby, a rich girl who 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 role. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”) Rated PG-13

July 1 & 4
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 director Steven Spielberg a household name. And 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

Heaven Can Wait (1978)
July 8 & 11
Heaven Can Wait (1978)(1969)
This hit comedy stars Warren Beatty as a pro quarterback who, through a heavenly mix-up, leaves earth before his time. He returns in a millionaire businessman’s body and resumes his football ambitions. Nominated for 9 Oscars, including Best Picture. With Julie Christie, Dyan Cannon (hilarious as the millionaire’s scheming wife) and Jack Warden as the exasperated trainer. (“This isn't going to work. You're playing football with a bunch of butlers!”) Rated PG

Top Gun (1986)
July 15 & 18
Top Gun (1986)(1986)
Tom Cruise stars in this celebration of the heroism of Navy pilots, with some of the best aerial scenes ever filmed. The soundtrack album, with songs by Kenny Loggins and Berlin, including the Academy Award-winning Take My Breath Away, went platinum 9 times. Val Kilmer co-stars as “Iceman” and Kelly McGillis plays a flight instructor romantically drawn to the reckless “Maverick” (Cruise). (“I feel the need…the need for speed!”) Rated PG

July 22 & 25
Tim Burton directed this blockbuster that launched the Batman movie franchise and made “Batmania” a cultural phenomenon. Michael Keaton stars (“I’m Batman!”) and Kim Basinger is photo journalist Vicki Vale, out to discover his real identity. With original songs by Prince and a marvelously maniacal performance by Jack Nicholson (“Where does he get those wonderful toys?”) as the Joker (“I have given a name to my pain, and it is Batman.”) Rated PG-13

Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan
July 29 & August 1
Star Trek II: The Wrath Of Khan(1982)
Considered by many to be the best of the original Star Trek movies, presented in a 4K digitally restored director’s cut. William Shatner stars as Captain James T. Kirk and Leonard Nimoy plays Spock. (“I am a Vulcan. I have no ego to bruise.”) Ricardo Montalban gives a memorable performance as the villain Khan, a part he originated in the TV episode “Space Seed.” (“Do you know the Klingon proverb that tells us revenge is a dish that is best served cold?”) Rated PG

Big Trouble in Little China
August 5 & 8
Big Trouble in Little China(1986)
A 1980’s cult classic from director John Carpenter. Kurt Russell plays Jack Burton, a trucker who helps his friend (Dennis Dun) rescue his fiancée (Kim Cattrall) from the clutches of an evil sorcerer in San Francisco’s Chinatown. (Yes! It has action, comedy, special effects AND martial arts!) Russell is delightfully inept as an action hero who’s about as far from Indiana Jones as you can get. (“Sooner or later I rub everybody the wrong way.”) Rated PG-13
