CHECK THEATRE FOR SHOWTIMES

 

Grease
May 27 & 30
Grease(1978)
Grease is STILL the word! Join John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John and the rest of the gang at Rydell High in the original high school musical, looking better than ever in a 4K Digital restoration. With a dynamite score (the album went multi-multi-platinum) that includes “Summer Nights,” “Greased Lightnin’,” “Beauty School Dropout” (performed by real life 50’s heart-throb Frankie Avalon) and “You’re the One That I Want.” (“I’ve got chills…they’re multiplying…”)

Princess Bride, The
June 3 & 6
The Princess Bride(1987)
A cult classic and maybe the most quotable comedy ever made. The dashing Westley (Cary Elwes) is intent on rescuing the lovely Buttercup (Robin Wright) from an unhappy fate as the bride of Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). Mandy Patinkin is a fencing master (“My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”) and Billy Crystal is Miracle Max, a medicine man with a talent for treating the “mostly dead.” (“Have fun storming the castle!”)

Space Jam
June 10 & 13
Space Jam(1996)
Aliens from outer space want to force Bugs Bunny and his looney tunes friends to work in their amusement park. So naturally Bugs challenges the aliens to a basketball game (don’t ask), but to win they’ll need the help of the world’s greatest athlete, Michael Jordan. Where else but in this classic live action animation comedy can you see Larry Bird, Daffy Duck, and Charles Barkley all in the same movie, not to mention Bill Murray. (“Whoa, I don’t play defense!”)

Raiders of the Lost Ark
June 17 & 20
Raiders of the Lost Ark(1981)
Maybe the greatest adventure movie ever made, directed by Steven Spielberg from an idea from George Lucas. This summer blockbuster introduced audiences to archeology professor/action hero Indiana Jones (“Trust me”), who is searching for the legendary lost Ark of the Covenant. The Ark is said to contain enormous power, and “Indy” (Harrison Ford) and Marion (Karen Allen) must find it before the Nazis do. (“Snakes. Why’d it have to be snakes?”)

Dirty Dancing
June 24 & 27
Dirty Dancing(1987)
You’ll have “the time of your life” at this romantic crowd-pleaser, set at a Catskills summer resort in 1963. Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) plays Baby, a rich girl who finds herself attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). Primarily known for tough-guy roles, Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the role. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. ("Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”)

Jaws
July 1 & 4
Jaws(1975)
A killer shark is terrorizing the vacationers at Amity Island in this adaptation of Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel. Jaws dominated the box office throughout the summer of ‘75 and made director Steven Spielberg a household name. And composer John Williams turned two ominous notes into an Academy Award-winning score. It’s been over 40 years and folks still think twice about going into the water. (“You’re going to need a bigger boat.”)
