SWEET CHARITY – Thursday, February 13 at 7pm
In this musical, Charity Hope Valentine (Shirley MacLaine) looks on the bright side of life, despite working in a rundown dance hall and contending with a seemingly endless run of bad dates. Determined to find love, Charity wears her heart on her sleeve and is vulnerable to sleaze-balls who will take advantage of her trusting nature and that desperation to be loved. However, when Charity finds herself stuck in an elevator with the reserved Oscar Lindquist (John McMartin), it turns out that she may have finally met her match.
WHEN HARRY MET SALLY – Friday, February 14 at 6pm (optional supper club) & Sunday, February 16 at 7pm (no supper club)
In 1977, college graduates Harry Burns (Billy Crystal) and Sally Albright (Meg Ryan) share a contentious car ride from Chicago to New York, during which they argue about whether men and women can ever truly be strictly platonic friends. Ten years later, Harry and Sally meet again at a bookstore, and in the company of their respective best friends, Jess (Bruno Kirby) and Marie (Carrie Fisher), attempt to stay friends without sex becoming an issue between them. This beloved romantic comedy has passed its 30th anniversary!
On Friday, February 14, the optional supper club by Aunt Chubby’s Luncheonette will begin promptly at 6:00 pm with the film screening to begin at 8:00 pm. At this time, a limited number of meals are available and can be purchased by calling the box office. Menu includes an appetizer of grilled radicchio, an entree of chicken or zucchini milanese, and a dessert of apple pie.
Please note, members may use their free member tickets for this event. There is no additional member discount for this program.
FAMILY MATINEE: THE LITTLE RASCALS – Saturday, February 15 at 12pm
Mischievous youngsters Spanky (Travis Tedford) and Buckwheat (Ross Elliot Bagley) lead an anti-girl organization, and they pick their buddy Alfalfa (Bug Hall) to represent them in an all-important soapbox car rally. When the boys then find their driver canoodling with schoolmate Darla (Brittany Ashton Holmes), they decide they must break up the couple. Unfortunately, while Spanky and his pals are busy meddling in Alfalfa’s affairs, their prized race car is nabbed by two young toughs.
The original “Little Rascals” was a series of movie shorts from the 1930s featuring the antics of small children. This children’s movie keeps the nostalgic feeling of the original as it follows the exploits of Spanky, Alfalfa, and whole lovable gang.
CLASSIC CINEMA SUNDAY: DOCTOR ZHIVAGO – Sunday, February 16 at 4:30pm
Based on the Nobel Prize-winning novel by Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago covers the years prior to, during, and after the Russian Revolution, as seen through the eyes of poet/physician Yuri Zhivago (Omar Sharif).
In the tradition of Russian novels, a multitude of characters and subplots intertwine. Zhivago is married to Tonya (Geraldine Chaplin), but carries on an affair with Lara (Julie Christie), who has been raped by ruthless politician Komarovsky (Rod Steiger). Meanwhile, Zhivago’s half-brother Yevgraf (Alec Guinness) and the mysterious, revenge-seeking Strelnikoff (Tom Courteney) represent the “good” and “bad” elements of the Bolshevik revolution.
