REAR WINDOW
FRIDAY, APRIL 24 @ 8:00 PM
REAR WINDOW (1954) - Confined to a wheelchair by a broken leg, photographer L.B. "Jeff" Jeffries (James Stewart) spends his convalescence observing the private dramas of his neighbors from the rear window of his New York City apartment. But then one of them disappears - and her husband (Raymond Burr) begins acting... strangely. If Jeff can't even convince his girlfriend (Grace Kelly) that something is amiss, will somebody get away with murder? Director Alfred Hitchcock takes full advantage of the on-screen chemistry between an elegant Grace Kelly and a gruff James Stewart and strikes just the right balance between a deliciously subtle romantic comedy and a chilling masterpiece of suspense. No matter how many times you've seen it before, this is one of those rare films that sucks you in and keeps you on the edge of your seat through every twist and turn. Oscar nominations for Best Director, Best Screenplay, Best Cinematography, and Best Sound. [more...]

JAWS
FRIDAY, JUNE 26 @ 8:00 PM
JAWS (1975) - When a gigantic man-eating great white shark ravages the small island community of Amity, a police chief (Roy Scheider), a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss), and a veteran fisherman (Robert Shaw) set out to stop it. They soon find they're going to need a bigger boat! As John Williams' musical score menacingly builds up to that famous thundering crescendo, you'll remember why Jaws remains one of the most terrifying films of the 20th century. Adapted from Peter Benchley's novel, this is the box-office blockbuster that established director Stephen Spielberg as a force to be reckoned with. Inspired casting, a terrific plot, and Mother Nature's nastiest villain all combine to bring you the ultimate big-screen nail-biter! Jaws was nominated for Best Picture and won Oscars for Best Sound, Best Film Editing, and Best Original Dramatic Music Score. [more...]

WEST SIDE STORY
FRIDAY, JULY 17 @ 8:00 PM
WEST SIDE STORY (1961) - Writer Arthur Laurents, choreographer Jerome Robbins, librettist Stephen Sondheim, and composer Leonard Bernstein took Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet into a New York City street gang setting and created a legend that remains one of the most exhilarating, passionate musicals you may ever see on screen. Shakespeare's Montagues and Capulets become two rival teen-age gangs: the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Tony (Richard Beymer) from the Jets falls in love with Maria (Natalie Wood) whose brother Bernardo (George Chakiris) belongs to the Sharks. Can these two star-crossed lovers surmount the racial and ethnic barriers in their way, or will they be just two more victims of intolerance, misunderstanding, and mistrust? With a truly amazing Bernstein score, the incredible Robbins choreography, heartbreaking songs by Sondheim, innovative camera work by director Robert Wise, and unforgettable performances by a luminous Natalie Wood and a smoldering Rita Moreno (in her Oscar-winning role as Anita), it's no wonder this classic garnered ten Academy Awards.
