Blazing Saddles, Nov. 5 & 8

NOT your typical western. This politically incorrect 70’s comedy from director Mel Brooks stars Cleavon Little as Sheriff Bart and Gene Wilder as the Waco Kid. Madeline Kahn plays saloon singer Lily von Shtupp (“Ooh…a wed wose. How womantic!”) who falls for Sheriff Bart (“Oh, it’s twue, it’s twue!”)  Harvey Korman plays the villain whose name bears an unfortunate resemblance to that of movie star Hedy Lamarr. (“That’s HEDLEY!”)

1974

Rated R

The popular sequel to the sci-fi comedy blockbuster. Time-traveling teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) and Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd) must go back again to November 12, 1955 (“temporal junction point of the entire space-time continuum”), this time to prevent an alternate universe in which a wealthy Biff (Thomas F. Wilson) corrupts the town of Hill Valley.  (“Please, Marty. No one should know too much about their destiny.”)

1989

Rated PG

Relive the magic (or experience the thrill for the first time) of seeing Harry Potter’s first adventure on the big screen. Harry is a new student at Hogwart’s School of Witchcraft & Wizardry, where he must face the dreaded “He Who Must Not Be Named.”  Daniel Radcliffe stars as the 11-year-old wizard destined for greatness, and Rupert Grint and Emma Watson play his best friends Ron and Hermione. (“She needs to sort out her priorities!”)

2001

Rated PG

 

Home Alone, Nov. 26 & 29

The hit comedy starring Macaulay Culkin as Kevin McCallister, an 8-year-old boy who is mad at his family and wishes they would disappear.  When they accidentally leave for Christmas vacation without him, he gets his wish.  But he finds being “home alone” isn’t all fun and games (or is it?) when two bungling burglars (Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern) force him to defend his house.    (“You guys give up? Or are you thirsty for more?”) 

1990

Rated PG

 

White Christmas, Dec. 3 & 6

With comedy, romance, and of course, Bing Crosby singing White Christmas, this movie musical favorite is chock-full of Irving Berlin songs (“Snow…snow…snow!”). Crosby and Danny Kaye star as World War II vets and Broadway performers who stage a show at a Vermont inn. Edith Head designed the colorful costumes worn by Rosemary Clooney and Vera Ellen as the Haynes Sisters.  (“Lord help the mister who comes between me and my sister…”)

1954

Polar Express, Dec. 10 & 13

Elf, Dec. 17 & 20

It's a Wonderful Life, Dec. 24 & 27

Die Hard, Dec. 31 & Jan. 3

 

 

Is it a Christmas movie or isn’t it? Who cares? It’s one of the best action thrillers ever. Bruce Willis is New York cop John McClane, in LA during Christmas to visit his estranged wife Holly (Bonnie Bedelia). When the skyscraper in which Holly works is taken over by a murderous gang it falls to McClane to save the day. Alan Rickman is superbly sinister as the chief villain. (“Do you really think you have a chance against us, Mr. Cowboy?”)

1988

Rated R
