Rock 'N' Roll High School (1979)

Monday, July 10th 7pm
Big Screen Classics:
The Princess Bride (1987)

Adapting William Goldman's classic novel, Rob Reiner effortlessly brings to the screen a hilarious, cameo-filled mashup of fantasy,
romance, and parody. The Princess Bride is a wry satire and a devoted tribute to the magical world of fairy tales.


Monday, July 17th 7pm
Big Screen Classics:
Mccabe & Mrs. Miller (1971)

Robert Altman's murky anti-western is a poetic undoing of the original American genre film, exquisitely reducing the wild west to a dull and muddy landscape without myth or heroes.
Screening as a tribute to renowned film critic Jay Carr.

Tuesday, July 18th at sundown
Coolidge at the Greenway:
Back to the Future (1985)

A free outdoor screening from a 35mm print! Back in 1985, it was considered cool to hang out with mad scientists. Especially when the scientist in question, Dr. Emmett Brown, has just made a plutonium powered time-machine out of a DeLorean.
Rain date July 19.
