    • Gypsy (1962)

    • Date: 3/10 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Mervyn LeRoy | Cast: Natalie Wood Rosalind Russell Karl Malden Paul Wallace Ann Jillian

      Plot: This Stephen Sondheim/Jules Styne/Arthur Laurents musical comedy Gypsy had been a Broadway smash with Ethel Merman in the lead. Based on the autobiography of striptease artist Gypsy Rose Lee, it centers on the antics of Mama Rose (here played by Rosalind Russell), the Stage Mother from Hell who prods and pushes her daughters June and Louise into a vaudeville career and follows the rise of Louise--aka Gypsy-- to the top of her profession.

    • Lost Horizon (1937)

    • Date: 3/17 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Frank Capra | Cast: Ronald Colman Jane Wyatt John Howard Margo

      Plot: British diplomat Robert Conway and a small group of civilians crash land in the Himalayas, and are rescued by the people of the mysterious, Eden-like valley of Shangri-la. Protected by the mountains from the world outside, where the clouds of World War II are gathering, Shangri-la provides a seductive escape for the world-weary Conway.

    • The Usual Suspects (1995)

    • Date: 3/24 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: Bryan Singer | Cast: Kevin Spacey Stephen Baldwin Gabriel Byrne Benicio del Toro Kevin Pollak

      Plot: Near the end of The Usual Suspects, Kevin Spacey, in his Oscar-winning performance as crippled con man Roger "Verbal" Kint, says, "The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn't exist." This may be the key line in this story; the farther along the movie goes, the more one realizes that not everything is quite what it seems, and what began as a conventional whodunit turns into something quite different. A great modern classic from the 1990' s and a film that should not be missed.

    • The Searchers (1956)

    • Date: 3/31 | Starts at: 7pm

      Director: John Ford | Cast: John Wayne Jeffrey Hunter Vera Miles Natalie Wood

      Plot: If John Ford is the greatest Western director, The Searchers is arguably his greatest film, at once a grand outdoor spectacle like such Ford classics as She Wore a Yellow Ribbon (1949) and Rio Grande (1950) and a film about one man's troubling moral codes, a big-screen adventure of the 1950s that anticipated the complex themes and characters that would dominate the 1970s. Winton C. Hoch's Technicolor photography captures Monument Valley's savage beauty with subtle grace. The Searchers paved the way for such revisionist Westerns as The Wild Bunch (1969) and McCabe & Mrs. Miller (1971), and its influence on movies from Taxi Driver (1976) to Close Encounters of the Third Kind (1977) and Star Wars (1977) testifies to its lasting importance as an great classic.
