.  Youth is about two longtime friends vacationing in the Swiss Alps. Oscar winning actor Michael Caine plays Fred, an acclaimed composer and conductor, who brings along his daughter (Rachel Weisz) and best friend Mick (Harvey Keitel), a renowned filmmaker. While Mick scrambles to finish the screenplay for what he imagines will be his last important film, Fred has no intention of resuming his musical career.

Brooklyn tells the profoundly moving story of Eilis Lacey (Saoirse Ronan), a young Irish immigrant navigating her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City.

But soon, her new vivacity is disrupted by her past, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

*Film: Alfred Hitchcock Classic
STRANGERS ON A TRAIN

Friday, March 4, 7:00 pm & Saturday, March 5, 2:30 & 7:00pm

A chance encounter between tennis champion Guy (Farley Granger) and psychopath Bruno (Robert Walker) on a train triggers an unstoppable race toward double murder. Hitchcock’s classic thriller is a finely-tuned engine of suspense, taking barely a breath as it steams through a spine-tingling story of fate, coincidence, guilt and psychopathology—favorite themes of noir writer Patricia Highsmith, whose novel was adapted by the great Raymond Chandler.

Attendees will have a chance to vote on next year's Alfred Hitchcock classic.  Those who pick the winning candidate will be sent coupons good for one free ticket to next year's show!

*Film: TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

Friday, March 18, 7:00 pm & Saturday, March 19, 2:30 & 7:00pm

Robert Mulligan’s film of Harper Lee’s novel is nearly as beloved as its source. In his career defining role, Gregory Peck is Atticus Finch, a lawyer living in 1930s Alabama who defends a black man wrongly accused of raping a white girl. The subsequent events play out from the point of view of his young daughter Scout. Nominated for eight Academy Awards, including a win for Peck’s performance, it was also the film debut of Robert Duvall as the mysterious Boo Radley.

*Film: James Bond Classics
ON HER MAJESTY'S SECRET SERVICE

Friday, May 6, 7:00 pm & Saturday, May 7, 2:30 & 7:00pm

Australian model George Lazenby took up the mantle of the world's most suave secret agent when Sean Connery retired as James Bond—prematurely, it turned out. Connery returned in Diamonds Are Forever before leaving the role to Roger Moore, and Lazenby's subsequent career fizzled, yet this one-hit wonder is responsible for one of the best Bond films. In On Her Majesty's Secret Service, 007 leaves the Service to privately pursue his SPECTRE nemesis Blofeld (played this time by Telly Savalas), whose latest master plan threatens the world's crops with agricultural sterilisation. Bond teams up with smooth international crime-lord Draco (Gabriele Ferzetti) and falls in love with—and marries—his elegant daughter, Tracy (Diana Rigg). Bond monogamous? Not at first; after all he has Blofeld's harem to seduce. Lazenby hasn't the intensity of Connery but he has fun with his quips and even lampoons the Bond image in a playful pre-credits sequence. Rigg, fresh from playing sexy Emma Peel in The Avengers, matches 007 in every way. Former editor Peter Hunt makes a strong directorial debut, deftly handling the elaborate action sequences with a kinetic finesse and a dash of humour. Though not a hit on its original release, On Her Majesty's Secret Service has become a fan favourite and the closest the series has come to capturing the spirit of Ian Fleming's books.
