Godfather, The
March 4 & 7
The Godfather(2018)
Director Francis Ford Coppola turned Mario Puzo’s best-selling novel about a fictional crime family into an epic. Winner of 3 Oscars® including Best Picture, this movie revived the career of Marlon Brando, who was named Best Actor as Don Vito Corleone. Al Pacino, James Caan, and Robert Duvall all received nominations for their performances. Contains some of the most famous quotes in movie history. ("I’m gonna make him an offer he can’t refuse.”) Rated R

Quiet Man, The
March 11 & 14
The Quiet Man(2018)
Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day. This classic love story set in Ireland earned director John Ford his fourth Academy Award. John Wayne plays a former American boxer who falls in love with fiery redhead Maureen O’Hara, but her obstinate brother (Victor McLaglen) stands in their way. Wayne and McLaglen come to blows in a rousing climax peppered with witty trash talk and grudging respect. ("Your widow—me sister—she could’ve done a lot worse.”) Rated G

Sunset Boulevard (1950)
March 18 & 21
Sunset Boulevard (1950)(2018)
Billy Wilder directed what may be the best movie about movies ever made. A down-on-his-luck screenwriter (William Holden) becomes involved with Norma Desmond (Gloria Swanson), a former silent film star clinging to past glory. Nominated for 11 Oscars ®, and winner for screenplay, cinematography and score. Cecil B. DeMille plays himself as the director with whom Desmond hopes to stage a comeback. (“All right, Mr. DeMille, I’m ready for my closeup.”)

Dark Crystal, The
March 25 & 28
The Dark Crystal(2018)
This fantasy adventure from legendary puppeteers Jim Henson and Frank Oz is a cult favorite. In a magical world ruled by an evil race (the “Skeksis”) it falls to the elf-like Jen, a “Gelfling,” to challenge their power. Groundbreaking in its use of animatronics, it paved the way for Henson and Oz’s collaboration on Labyrinth. The Skeksis dinner scene is a classic combination of artistry and humor…you’ll believe these puppets are real. ("Ah, roast Nebrie, my favorite!") Rated PG

Easter Parade (1948)
April 1 & 4
Easter Parade (1948)(2018)
EASTER PARADE (1948) Judy Garland and Fred Astaire, two of the greatest stars from Hollywood’s Golden Age, team up in this joyous holiday musical from composer Irving Berlin (White Christmas). One of the most successful of all MGM musicals, with some of Berlin’s best songs, including “Shakin’ the Blues Away” (performed by Ann Miller), “Steppin’ Out with My Baby,” “A Couple of Swells” and, of course, the title song. ("Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet…”)

Saturday Night Fever (1977)
April 8 & 11
Saturday Night Fever (1977)(2018)
The blockbuster that made John Travolta a star (and disco music a phenomenon) returns in a digitally restored director’s cut. The dazzling dance floor action (set to chart-topping songs from the Bee Gees) looks better than ever on the big screen. Travolta earned an Oscar nomination for his performance as Tony Manero, whose streetwise demeanor hides his yearning for a better life. ("I'll dance with you, but it's not like you're my dream girl or nothin'.”) Rated R
