BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
MAY 8, 2018 • 6 PM
An arrogant young prince (Robby Benson) and his castle’s servants fall under the spell of a wicked enchantress, who turns him into the hideous Beast until he learns to love and be loved in return. The spirited, headstrong village girl Belle (Paige O’Hara) enters the Beast’s castle after he imprisons her father Maurice (Rex Everhart). With the help of his enchanted servants, including the matronly Mrs. Potts (Angela Lansbury), Belle begins to draw the cold-hearted Beast out of his isolation.
SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER
MAY 15, 2018 • 6 PM
This movie is rated R and may not be suitable for children.
John Travolta graduated from minor celebrity to superstar in 1977 with Saturday Night Fever. He plays Tony Manero, a Brooklyn paint-store clerk who’d give anything to break out of his dead-end existence. In life, Tony is a peasant; on the disco dance floor, he’s a king. As the soundtrack plays one Bee Gees hit after another (including “Stayin’ Alive” and “Night Fever”), Tony’s class aspirations are mirrored in his relationship with his dance partner, Stephanie (Karen Lynn Gorney), a secretary eager to move into the glamorous world of Manhattan.
SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN
MAY 22, 2018 • 6 PM
This 1952 American musical-romantic comedy film starring Gene Kelly (who also co-directed and choreographed), Donald O’Connor, and Debbie Reynolds offers a lighthearted depiction of Hollywood in the late 1920s, with the three stars portraying performers caught up in the transition from silent films to “talkies”. The film features the songs “Good Morning,” Make ‘Em Laugh,” and “Singin’ in the Rain.”
