MILDRED PIERCE (1945) - Shots ring out in the night and playboy Monte Beragon (Zachary Scott) is found dead in a beach house. As police investigate the shooting, their inquiries zero in on Mildred Pierce (Joan Crawford) and her life story begins to emerge... Mildred left behind her humble beginnings as a middle-class housewife and waitress raising two daughters on her own to start an affair with the murdered Monte Beragon and launch her own successful restaurant chain. Is Mildred a conniving manipulator consumed with ambition, or is she a victim of trusted friends and family members? Is Mildred a woman of strength and nobility who truly deserves our sympathy? Joan Crawford won the Academy Award for Best Actress. A Supporting Actress Oscar nomination went to Ann Blyth for her performance as Veda, Mildred's talented but horribly spoiled daughter. [more...]

SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER (1977) - Tony Manero (John Travolta) lives for Saturday nights at the local disco, where he's king of the club, thanks to his dancing skills. Off the dance floor, Tony is quite content to be just another under-achieving 19-year-old working class Brooklyn neighbourhood kid. But when he meets Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gomey), whom he pines after as a dance partner, his horizons suddenly widen. Through Stephanie, Tony sees a future with actual goals to achieve - the first goal being to win the local club's dance competition. It's the dance sequences and club scenes which energize the film and, whether you like disco music or not, the Bee Gees' soundtrack pumps up these scenes with maximum energy. The choreography is electric and hypnotic and Travolta owns this era-defining film! The entire decade of the '70s might well be summed up by the famous opening credits scene of Tony Manero strutting down a Brooklyn sidewalk to the tune of "Staying Alive". [more...]

Running time: 125 minutes
Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00 | Curtain rises @ 8:00pm
All Tickets: $5.00 (ticket prices include $2.00 facility fee)
NIGHT OF THE IGUANA (1964) - Defrocked Episcopal clergyman Dr. T. Lawrence Shannon (Richard Burton) leads a busload of middle-aged Baptist women on a tour of the Mexican coast. Driven to distraction by the hostility of the group's leader (Grayson Hall) and the attentions of a seductive teenager (Sue Lyons), Reverend Shannon has an alcoholic breakdown and hijacks the group off of the scheduled tour through the Mexican jungle to a dilapidated hotel owned by an old friend's wife (Ava Gardner). A budding relationship with an itinerant artist (Deborah Kerr) may be Shannon's last hope of exorcising his demons of insanity and alcoholism. Shannon has literally reached the end of the road and now he has no choice but to come to terms with the failure and self-destruction haunting his life. Director John Huston's riveting screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play garnered the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress (Grayson Hall) and a Best Costume Design Oscar for Dorothy Jeakins.

THE GOONIES

Running time: 114 minutes
Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00 | Curtain rises @ 8:00pm
All Tickets: $5.00 (ticket prices include $2.00 facility fee)
THE GOONIES (1985) - On the wrong side of the tracks in a seaside town, a land developer prepares to tear down a block of houses in order to build a golf course. A band of neighborhood kids, who call themselves the Goonies, are about to see an end to their adventures together. Facing eviction from their homes, the Goonies find an old Spanish map and go on the trail of a lost pirate treasure. This is Stephen Spielberg's homage to classic children's adventure films - but the Goonies are real kids: vulgar, insensitive, profane, cunning, and combative. Director Richard Donner hurls plot twists, thrills, laughs, stunts, and special effects across the screen at breakneck speed, and the cast of precocious child actors (Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, and Anne Ramsey) is unforgettable.
