    • Grease

    • Date: 11/24 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Randal Kleiser | Cast: John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing

      Plot: "Grease," said the poster and the Barry Gibb song, "is the word." Transferring its setting from Chicago to sunny California, and adding a dash of disco to the ersatz '50s score, producer Allan Carr and director Randal Kleiser turned this long-running Jim Jacobs-Warren Casey Broadway smash into the biggest blockbuster of 1978. 1950s teens Danny (John Travolta) and Australian transfer Sandy (Olivia Newton-John) spend their "Summer Nights" falling in love, but once fall comes, it's back to Rydell High and its cliques. With Travolta white-hot from Saturday Night Fever (1977), Grease soundtrack singles climbed the charts and summer movie crowds poured in. With the presence of Joan Blondell, Eve Arden, Sid Caesar, Edd "Kookie" Byrnes, and Frankie Avalon appealing to grown-up memories, Grease became the highest-grossing film of 1978, the highest-grossing movie musical ever, and the third most popular film of the new blockbuster '70s after Star Wars (1977) and Jaws (1975).

    • White Christmas

    • Date: 12/1 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Michael Curtiz | Cast: Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Rosemary Clooney

      Plot: Holiday classic about  a successful song-and-dance team become romantically involved with a sister act and team up to save the failing Vermont inn of their former commanding general.

    • Christmas Vacation

    • Date: 12/8 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Jeremiah S. Chechik | Cast: Chevy Chase, Randy Quaid, Beverly D'Angelo, Juliette Lewis

      Plot: The undisputed gem of the National Lampoon 'Vacation' series, the plot can be summed up very simply: idealistic family man Clark Griswold wants to host the perfect old-fashioned fun family Christmas. As all of us know there is no such thing as a perfect holiday, and that just about sums it up. The appeal of this film is that we can all relate to the disasters that holidays can become, regardless of how well-meaning we are and how hard we work to achieve them. A delightful classic holiday comedy!
