PURPLE RAIN (1984)

Filled with exciting concert foot- age showcasing The Purple One’s in- imitable style and featuring an original song score which earned Prince both an Oscar and a Grammy. His performances include the monster hits “Purple Rain,” “When Doves Cry” and “Let’s Go Crazy.” (“Are we gonna’ let the elevator bring us down? Oh no, let’s go!”) Rated R. 114 minutes.

TWILIGHT: 15th Anniversary (2008)
Blockbuster film version of the romantic thriller that became a literary phenomenon. 17-year-old Bella (Kristen Stewart) moves to a new town where she meets a cool guy named Edward (Robert Pattinson) who is impossibly fast and strong, has ice-cold skin…and is a vampire! Despite obvious complications, the two find themselves irresistibly drawn to each other. (“You don’t know how long I’ve waited for you.”) Rated PG-13. 122 minutes.

JUNE 18 (Father’s Day) & 21
BACK TO THE FUTURE (1985)
Classic time-travel comedy from Steven Spielberg & Robert Zemeckis. 80’s teenager Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) teams up with mad scientist Doc Brown (Christopher Lloyd). (“Doc, are you telling me you built a time machine … out of a DeLorean?”) Marty is transported to the year 1955 and must find a way to get “back to the future.” (“Roads? Where we’re going, we don’t need roads!”) Rated PG.
JUNE 25 & 28
DIRTY DANCING (1987)
You’ll have “the time of your life” at this romantic crowd-pleaser, set at a summer resort in 1963. Jennifer Grey (Ferris Bueller’s sister) plays Baby, a rich girl attracted to a working-class dance instructor (Patrick Swayze). Tough guy Swayze’s experience with the Joffrey Ballet (who knew?) prepared him for the role. We dare you to sit still during the film’s big finish. (“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.”) Rated PG-13.
JULY 2 & 5
Steven Spielberg’s summer blockbuster, based on Peter Benchley’s best-selling novel. A killer shark is terrorizing vacationers at Amity Island and a trio of shark-hunters take to the high seas in pursuit. John Williams won an Oscar® for his ominous score (“Duunnn dun…dun dun.”) It’s been almost 50 years and folks still think twice about going in the water. (“You’re going to need a bigger boat.”) Rated PG.
JULY 9 & 12
GREASE: 45th ANNIVERSARY (1978)
Grease is STILL the word! John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John star in the original high school musical (“Summer loving, had me a blast…”) The dynamite score (the album went multi-multi- platinum) includes “Greased Lightnin’,” “Beauty School Dropout” (performed by 50’s heartthrob Frankie Avalon) and “You’re the One That I Want.” (“I’ve got chills…they’re multiplying…and I’m losin’ control!”) Rated PG.
JULY 16 & 19
SHREK 2 (2004)
The biggest hit of the popular Shrek series. Shrek (Mike Myers) and his bride Fiona (Cameron Diaz) visit the land of Far Far Away and get a less than enthusiastic reception from her parents. Puss in Boots (Antonio Banderas) makes his first appearance and Eddie Murphy returns as Donkey (“Shrek, don’t worry. Things just seem bad cuz it’s dark and rainy and Fiona’s father hired a sleezy hitman to whack you.”) Rated PG.
JULY 23 & 26
FRIDAY THE 13TH (1980)
The ORIGINAL! This iconic 80’s slasher movie did for summer camp what Jaws did for the beach. A group of amorous teenage counselors gather at the isolated and reputedly haunted Camp Crystal Lake, where years earlier a boy named Jason Voorhees drowned…because of neglect by some amorous teenage counselors. What could go wrong? (“You’re doomed if you stay here! This place is cursed…cursed!”) Rated R.
COMING SOON: THE ORIGINAL
