    • Great Expecations

    • Date: 7/8 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: David Lean | Cast: John Mills Valerie Hobson Jean Simmons

      Plot: Immediately grabbing the audience's attention with a heart-stopping opening scene in a dark graveyard, acclaimed British director David Lean realizes the cinematic potential of Charles Dickens' classic 1861 novel, and the result is considered by many to be one of the finest literary adaptations ever made as well as one of the greatest British films of all time. Crystallized into a tight 118-minute running time by Lean, Ronald Neame, and a corps of uncredited contributors, this is the story of young Pip, a lad of humble means whose training as a gentleman is bankrolled by a mysterious benefactor

    • The Adventures of Robin Hood

    • Date: 7/15 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Michael Curtiz William Keighley | Cast: Errol Flynn Olivia de Havilland Basil Rathbone Claude Rains

      Plot:

      "The Adventures of Robin Hood" was made with sublime innocence and breathtaking artistry, at a time when its simple values rang true. In these cynical days when swashbucklers cannot be presented without an ironic subtext, this great 1938 film exists in an eternal summer of bravery and romance. We require no Freudian subtext, no revisionist analysis; it is enough that Robin wants to rob the rich, pay the poor and defend the Saxons not against all Normans, only the bad ones: "It's injustice I hate, not the Normans."...a masterpiece."

    • The Last Picture Show

    • Date: 7/22 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Peter Bogdanovich | Cast: Timothy Bottoms, Jeff Bridges, Cybill Shepherd

      Plot: Peter Bogdanovich's tribute and homage to the classic films of legendary directors Howard Hawks, John Ford, and Orson Welles is based on a novel of the same name by the great novelist Larry McMurtry. The time frame of the film is about a year-long period from November 1951 to the next fall and is told from the point-of-view of an 18 year old boy. It chronicles how changes in the world, his own personal rites of passage, and the closing of the forlorn town's only 'picture show' (due to the coming of the isolating pablum of television) marks the economically-battered community's death knell and the passing of an earlier era.

A Top-notch adventure/ fantasy that pits the hero Sinbad against unscrupulous magician who has reduced Princess Grant to miniature size.
