YANKEE DOODLE DANDY

1942 • James Cagney

 

 

A musical biography of Broadway legend George M. Cohan, whose music helped rouse patriotism during WWI with songs such as “Grand Old Flag,” “Over There,” and of couse I’m a Yankee Doodle Dandy.”  This classic Warner Bros. musical stars Oscar® winner James Cagney as Cohan, along with an impressive supporting cast.  In his autobiography, Cagney said that Yankee Doodle Dandy was his favorite film, largely due to an opportunity to dance.  Known at the time as America’s tough guy, Cagney finally had a chance to show another side of his incredible talent.

THE GOLD RUSH

1925 • Charlie Chaplin

 

 

One of the best movies ever made. The first half hour itself is worth the price of admission, containing some of the funniest scenes you’ll ever see in a movie.  The bottom line is that The Gold Rush is still funny after ninety years, and that's a feat few comedies in any year can ever accomplish. Chaplin, in his ability to extract maximum humor and poignancy from his material, has no equivalent today.

SCIENCE FICTION FILM FESTIVAL

Join us for a trip to the 1950s!  We’ve got four sci-fi flicks from the “classic era” of sci-fi cinema. These films were low budget, targeted at teens, and surprisingly successful with common themes like fear of nuclear weapons, alien invasion, and science experiments gone awry. Great throwback fun!

THEM!

 

 

Them! (1954) is the first of the 1950s "nuclear monster" movies that terrorized a generation. When a nest of gigantic irradiated ants is discovered in the New Mexico desert, they quickly become a national threat that finally culminates in a battle in the concrete sewers of Los Angeles.  Early effects aside, this is a true sci-fi classic.
