The Matrix

The Matrix (1999)

July 21 & 24 | Rated R

Futuristic action thriller that became a word-of-mouth hit and a landmark 90’s movie. Keanu Reeves is Neo, a hacker who discovers reality is not what it appears to be (“Have you ever had a dream, Neo, that you were so sure was real?”) With mind-blowing stunts and visual effects that bend the laws of physics. (“Unfortunately, no one can be told what the matrix is. You have to see it for yourself.”)

Back to the Future

Back to the Future (1985)

July 28 & 31 | Rated PG

Classic time-travel comedy from Steven Spielberg & Robert Zemeckis. 80’s teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) teams up with mad scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). (“Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine … out of a DeLorean?”) Marty is transported to the year 1955 and must find a way to get "back to the future." ("Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads!")

Top Gun

Top Gun (1986)

August 4 & 7 | Rated PG

Tom Cruise stars as Navy fighter pilot “Maverick” in this blockbuster that is the perfect 1980’s blend of action, patriotism and romance. The soundtrack album, with songs by Kenny Loggins and Berlin, including the Oscar®-winning Take My Breath Away, went platinum nine times. Kelly McGillis plays a flight instructor romantically drawn to the reckless Cruise. (“I feel the need…the need for speed!”)

Big Trouble in Little China

Big Trouble in Little China (1986)

August 11 & 14 | Rated PG-13

Kurt Russell is Jack Burton, a trucker helping his friend (Dennis Dun) rescue his fiancée from the clutches of an evil sorcerer in San Francisco’s Chinatown. (Yes! It has comedy, romance, martial arts AND special effects!). Kim Cattrall gives an assist to Russell, who is delightfully inept as an action hero who only wishes he were Indiana Jones. (“Sooner or later I rub everybody the wrong way.”)

The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski (1998)

August 18 & 21 | Rated R

“The Dude abides.” Jeff Bridges is Jeffrey (“The Dude”) Lebowski in this comedy about mistaken identity, kidnapping and bowling. Written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen and co-starring, Steve Buscemi (“Walter, what’s your point?”), John Goodman (“You cannot drag this negative energy into the tournament.”) and Julianne Moore. And yes, that rug really tied the room together.

South Pacific

South Pacific (1958)

August 25 & 28 | Not Rated

Romantic musical set in the South Seas during World War II, filled with glorious Rodgers & Hammerstein songs (“Bali Ha'i may call you…”) that will make you feel “younger than springtime.” Navy nurse Mitzi Gaynor is “ a cockeyed optimist” who’s “in love with a wonderful guy” (French plantation owner Rosanno Brazzi). (“Some enchanted evening, you may see a stranger...”)
