“A soaring, heart-bursting portrait…an infectiously inspiring story…this movie fires on every cylinder” (Washington Post)

PG; 83 minutes

The Pakistan-born comedian, Kumail Nanjiani, stars in this Oscar-nominated romantic comedy based on his own life — first,coping with culture clash and then his wife’s mysterious illness. Holly Hunter takes an exceptional turn as a mother-in-law on steroids.

“A joyous, generous-hearted rom-com that, even as it veers into difficult terrain, insists that we keep on laughing“ (NY Times)

R; 119 minutes
.

In 1994, Roger Ebert said it best : “Seen after 30 years, “Dr. Strangelove” seems remarkably fresh and undated — a clear-eyed, irreverant, dangerous satire.” In 2018, Stanley Kubrick’s classic black comedy from 1964 still seems as relevant as ever. With an inspired screenplay by Terry Southern and unforgettable performances by Peter Sellers (in three roles), George C. Scott, Sterling Hayden, Keenan Wynn and Slim Pickens.

“Matthew Broderick charms in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, a light and irrepressibly fun movie about being young and having fun. (Rotten Tomatoes.com)

PG: 103 minutes

Alfred Hitchcock’s 1943 B&W thriller, “Shadow of a Doubt,” is regarded as one of his masterpieces.  A small-town girl (Teresa Wright) gradually develops doubts about a beloved uncle (Joseph Cotton) who seems to harbor terrible secrets.

NR: 108 minutes

From 1951, and featuring music by the Gershwins, incomparable dancing by Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron and lavish production numbers, this is one of the great movie musicals.  Kelly plays a struggling artist whose up-and-down romance with Caron culminates in a sumptuous ballet set to the title composition.

” ‘American…’ has many qualities…, not least its famous ballet production number, and there are other production numbers, set in everyday Parisian settings, that are endlessly inventive in their use of props and locations.”  (Roger Ebert.com)

NR: 115 minutes
