8:30pm - African Queen (1951)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

In The African Queen Hepburn plays Rosie, an Edwardian missionary caught in the Congo as the First World War breaks out. Her salvation lies in a gin-sozzled riverboat skipper, Charlie Allnutt (played to Oscar-winning effect by Humphrey Bogart), and his titular 30ft steam-launch. A love story, war film and paean to messing about on the river, it remains an irresistible classic.

2/27-Manchurian Candidate (1962)

22 sq ft 22 gross/month

Partnering with Vermont Film Essentials:

Based on Richard Condon’s best-selling novel, The Manchurian Candidate instantly became one of the most controversial films of all time. Before its release, Frank Sinatra had to ask President John F. Kennedy for permission to make a film about a political assassination. When that very president was assassinated in Dallas the following year, Sinatra pulled the film from circulation for the next 25 years, haunted at the similarities of life imitating art.
