    CLASSIC HEPBURN: BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S
    One Colorado Courtyard, 41 Hugus Alley - Map It!
    "I've got to do something about the way I look. I mean a girl just can't go to Sing Sing with a green fac." - So sighs Audrey Hepburn's girl-about-town Holly Golightly, breezing ever-so-gently through the real world with hardly a ripple. But when she meets sober, handsome, nice guy George Peppard, she begins to gradually re-think her anything-goes, high-living lifestyle.

    The quintessential 1950's science fiction film, in which scientists and the military join forces to conquer an alien invasion. Even today, few films can match this movie's triumphant blend of special effects and snappy romance (in the form of the relationship between astronomer Gene Barry and his spunky girlfriend Ann Robinson.)

    10:00 PM
    HORROR FILM: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE
    Basement of Schoolhouse Parking Garage, 33 E. Green Street - Map It!
    Director Tobe Hooper will introduce the screening.
    One of the best American horror films from the 1970s and certainly one of the scariest movies ever made, it works so well because the unknown actors and real-life locations burn themselves into your memory, assuming a nightmarishly twisted reality that lingers long after you’ve seen the film. After hearing of a cemetery desecration, Marilyn Burns and friends go on a jaunt in the broiling Texas countryside to make sure her grandparents’ graves are okay, only to become stranded at the rural home of a family of inbred cannibals. Director Tobe Hooper expertly escalates the horror until you can’t stand it anymore…then goes one step further. With Gunnar Hansen, Ed Neal.

    SATURDAY, JULY, 19
    10:00 AM
    FAMILY MATINEE: MARY POPPINS
    Laemmle’s One Colorado Cinemas, 42 Miller Alley - Map It!
    Julie Andrews is God’s gift to nanny-dom as Mary Poppins in this classic musical comedy/fantasy. When Poppins comes to work for the Banks family in their turn-of-the-20th-century London household, she uplifts everyone’s spirits and brings magic to their lives. Dick Van Dyke is Bert, the good-natured chimney sweep and the great Jane Darwell, in her last screen appearance, plays the bird lady. Winner of five Academy Awards, including Andrews for Best Actress and Richard M. & Robert B. Sherman for Best Original Song and Best Original Music Score.

    CLASSIC HEPBURN: SABRINA
    One Colorado Courtyard, 41 Hugus Alley - Map It!
    Chauffeur's daughter Audrey Hepburn blooms from ugly duckling to fashion queen as she tries to choose between wealthy, middle-aged Humphrey Bogart (at his sexy, smokey best) and cocky lover-boy William Holden (a Wilder favorite). Billy Wilder's classic romantic triangle.

    10:00 PM
    MENTAL HYGIENE SHORT FILMS
    Mercantile Alley (right behind Coffee Bean at 18 S. Fair Oaks) - Map It!
    Presented by Archivist and Historian Rick Prelinger.
    For the quarter-century following World War II, a special kind of classroom film received wide circulation. These "mental hygiene" films thrived in a confused and nervous America. The rebellious behavior of young people challenging the social norms struck fear into the hearts of parents and educators, who saw dark futures for the teens who broke the rules and refused to fit in with society. These concerned adults embraced the metal hygiene film as a new means of delivering social guidance. The creators of the films took their cues from the wildly successful training and propaganda films of the World War II era. They used the same shock and scare techniques to warn teenagers about substance abuse, venereal disease, juvenile delinquency and the awful fate of kids who drive too fast on prom night.

    CLASSIC HEPBURN: ROMAN HOLIDAY
    One Colorado Courtyard, 41 Hugus Alley - Map It!
    A real-life princess (Audrey Hepburn), weary of her sheltered existence, takes off on her own to see the sights of Rome, only to encounter romance in the form of suave Gregory Peck. But unbeknownst to Hepburn, Peck is really a reporter out for a story, and this inevitably complicates things as the two grow more intimate. This sweet-natured romantic comedy won three Oscars, including Best Actress for Hepburn.

    10:45 PM
    CLASSIC FOREIGN FILM: SEVEN SAMURAI
    One Colorado Courtyard, 41 Hugus Alley - Map It!
    Director Akira Kurosawa's most famous film is certainly one of the finest movies ever made - a huge, sprawling but intimate, character-driven period epic about an aging swordsman (the great Takashi Shimura) who enlists six other warriors-for-hire (amongst them, Toshiro Mifune, Minoru Chiaki, Isao Kimura, Daisuke Kato, Seiji Miyaguchi, Yoshio Inaba) to safeguard a remote village plagued by bandits.

    LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY
    One Colorado Courtyard, 41 Hugus Alley, Middle Earth - Map It!
    J.R.R. Tolkien's literary masterpiece The Lord of the Rings has influenced generations of readers worldwide and continues to captivate new fans around the globe.

    OK, 42 views so far... I'm sure somebody is interested in this and would like to go to at least one of these shows.

    By the way, did I mention that they were FREE shows?
