PRETTY WOMAN
[Running time: 119 minutes]
Box Office opens @ 6:00pm | Doors open @ 7:00 | Curtain rises @ 8:00pm
All Tickets: $5.00 (ticket prices include facility fee)
ALL AGES REQUIRE A TICKET

PRETTY WOMAN (1990) - Ruthless corporate takeover attorney Edward Lewis (Richard Gere) gets more than he bargained for when he hires Vivian Ward (Julia Roberts), a lovely lady of the evening, as his escort. A one-night-stand turns into week after week of makeovers as Vivian is transformed into the woman that Edward thinks he wants. Director Garry Marshall took what might have been a sordid hackneyed parody of Pygmalion and turned it into a sweet, innocent, and warm-hearted tale of love and redemption. Julia Robert's performance as an utterly adorable hooker-with-a-heart launched her into Hollywood's A-List and the chemistry between her and Richard Gere made this film easily the most memorable romantic comedy of the 1990s.

ALL AGES REQUIRE A TICKET

JAWS (1982) - When a gigantic man-eating great white shark ravages the small island community of Amity, a police chief (Roy Scheider), a marine biologist (Richard Dreyfuss), and a veteran fisherman (Robert Shaw) set out to stop it. They soon find they're going to need a bigger boat! As John Williams' musical score menacingly builds up to that famous thundering crescendo, you'll remember why Jaws remains one of the most terrifying films of the 20th century. Adapted from Peter Benchley's novel, this is the box-office blockbuster that established director Steven Spielberg as a force to be reckoned with. Inspired casting, a terrific plot, and Mother Nature's nastiest villain all combine to bring you the ultimate big-screen nail-biter! Jaws was nominated for Best Picture and won Oscars for Best Sound, Best Film Editing, and Best Original Dramatic Music Score. [more...]

WEST SIDE STORY
FRIDAY, JULY 17 @ 8:00 PM
WEST SIDE STORY (1961) - Writer Arthur Laurents, choreographer Jerome Robbins, librettist Stephen Sondheim, and composer Leonard Bernstein took Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet into a New York City street gang setting and created a legend that remains one of the most exhilarating, passionate musicals you may ever see on screen. Shakespeare's Montagues and Capulets become two rival teen-age gangs: the "American" Jets and the Puerto Rican Sharks. Tony (Richard Beymer) from the Jets falls in love with Maria (Natalie Wood) whose brother Bernardo (George Chakiris) belongs to the Sharks. Can these two star-crossed lovers surmount the racial and ethnic barriers in their way, or will they be just two more victims of intolerance, misunderstanding, and mistrust? With a truly amazing Bernstein score, the incredible Robbins choreography, heartbreaking songs by Sondheim, innovative camera work by director Robert Wise, and unforgettable performances by a luminous Natalie Wood and a smoldering Rita Moreno (in her Oscar-winning role as Anita), it's no wonder this classic garnered ten Academy Awards.
