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.

Running time: 115 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)
BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) - Based on the novel by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, this unforgettable gem of a romantic comedy stars the incomparable Audrey Hepburn at the height of her beauty and talent. Hepburn is mesmerizing as Holly Golightly, a Manhattan party girl who doesn't quite grasp when parties end and reality begins. Sharing Holly's lifestyle is handsome young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard). No matter what scrape Holly manages to get into, Paul is always there to pick up the pieces. But Paul is trying to make something of himself and Holly is trying to create something of herself. Will Holly realize that there's more to life than being kept in a style to which she's become accustomed? Will Paul ever convince Holly that he deserves more from her than "brotherly" love? Micky Rooney as Holly's Japanese landlord, O.J. Berman as Holly's Hollywood agent, Patricia Neal as Paul's patron, and Buddy Epsen as Holly's ex-husband round out a perfect cast delivering peak performances. Henri Mancini's musical score and the song "Moon River" sung by Audrey Hepburn earned Oscars. [more...]

VIVA LAS VEGAS (1964) - Race car driver Lucky Jackson (Elvis Presley) is down on his luck in Las Vegas. The Grand Prix is just around the corner and his race car needs an engine! Lucky has to take a job as a casino waiter, and luckily, there's that redheaded bombshell Rusty Martin (Ann-Margret) to help him. And luckily, Lucky Johnson can SING! Highlights of the twelve musical numbers include a verbal duel between Elvis and Ann-Margret entitled "The Lady Loves Me", the essential rockabilly number "C’mon, Everybody", Ray Charles’ "What’d I Say", and the requisite ballad "If You Don’t Think I Need You".

Running time: 130 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)
CHINATOWN (1974) - In 1937 Los Angeles, private eye Jake "J.J." Gittes (Jack Nicholson) is hired by Evelyn Mulwray (Faye Dunaway) to undertake an investigation that leads him deeper and deeper into a web of scandal, deceit, and corruption. One of director Roman Polanski's greatest films, Chinatown hooks the viewer into a plot whose unpredictable twists and turns develop into a mind-bending and unguessable conclusion. Complex characters, pitch-perfect dialogue, and masterful acting all combine to make this one of the best noir films of all time. Six Oscar wins: Best Writing, Best Picture, Best Actor, Best Actress, Best Direction, Best Cinematography. [more...]
