    • Witness for the Prosecution (1957)

    • Date: 8/2 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Billy Wilder | Cast: Tyrone Power, Marlene Dietrich, Charles Laughton

      Plot:  Witness for the Prosecution is based on iconic mystery novelist Agatha Christie’s 1925 short story of the same name. To his credit, however, director Billy Wilder's rapier wit and a surprise twist ending go a long way towards spicing up what would otherwise be a stuffy English law procedural in the hands of another filmmaker.   Witness for the Prosecution is an engaging courtroom drama that was well-received by critics upon its release, scoring a slew of Oscar nominations like Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor and Supporting Actress, Best Sound, and Best Editing. 

    • Pretty Woman (1990)

    • Date: 8/9 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Garry Marshall | Cast: Richard Gere, Julia Roberts

      Plot: In honor of the late director Gary Marshall we are showing his best known film Pretty Woman. In this modern update on Cinderella, a prostitute and a wealthy businessman fall hard for one another, forming an unlikely pair. 

    • Endless Summer (1966)

    • Date: 8/16 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Bruce Brown | Cast: Michael Hynson and Robert August

      Plot: The Endless Summer Movie is known as one of the first, last, and ultimate surfer "flicks." It has become a timeless masterpiece that continues to capture the imagination of each and every new generation. Happy Summer everyone!

    • The Great Dictator (1940)

    • Date: 8/23 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Charles Chaplin | Cast: Charles Chaplin

      Plot: In his controversial masterpiece The Great Dictator Charlie Chaplin offers both a cutting caricature of Adolf Hitler and a sly tweaking of his own comic persona. Chaplin, in his first pure talkie, brings his sublime physicality to two roles: the cruel yet clownish “Tomainian” dictator and the kindly Jewish barber who is mistaken for him. Featuring Jack Oakie and Paulette Goddard in stellar supporting turns, The Great Dictator  boldly going after the fascist leader before the U.S.’s official entry into World War II, is an audacious amalgam of politics and slapstick that culminates in Chaplin’s famously impassioned speech.

    • Aliens (1986)

    • Date: 8/30 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: James Cameron | Cast: Sigourney Weaver, Carrie Henn, Michael Biehn, Bill Paxton

      Plot: “Game over, man, game over!” It’s rare for a sequel to live up to the original film, but director James Cameron managed to fulfill expectations with Aliens. This summer marks the 30th Anniversary of the action-packed sci-fi classic, so “stop your grinnin’ and drop your linen.”  In Aliens the terror continues as Ripley (Sigourney Weaver) returns to Earth after drifting through space in hypersleep for 57 years. Although her story about the Alien encounter is met with skepticism, she agrees to accompany a team of high-tech marines back to LV-426 to see what happened to the colonists there who are no longer responsing...
