Call her a square, but Doris Day was perhaps the most underrated comedienne in Hollywood history. And she was never more hilarious, nor charming, as she was in Pillow Talk, an enormous hit in its day. Sparks fly in this story of an arrogant Broadway composer and playboy (Rock Hudson) whose party line keeps getting tangled with a proud interior decorator (Day).

35MM PRESENTATION

Douglas Sirk's Hollywood swan song is also rightfully regarded as his masterpiece, and a cunning indictment of racial and sexual mores that was years ahead of its time. The story of two women, Lora (Lana Turner), who seeks Broadway success, and her housekeeper Annie (Juanita Moore), who wants nothing more than love and security, Imitation of Life peels away the shiny veneer of the American Dream to reveal a heartless landscape of loneliness and alienation.

Digital Cinema Presentation

"This Is Spinal Tap" shines a light on the self-contained universe of a metal band struggling to get back on the charts, including everything from its complicated history of ups and downs, gold albums, name changes and undersold concert dates, along with the full host of requisite groupies, promoters, hangers-on and historians, sessions, release events and those special behind-the-scenes moments that keep it all real.

DIGITAL CINEMA PRESENTATION

In his push to establish Universal as a first-rank studio, Carl Laemmle, Jr spent over 2 million dollars to produced this spectacular musical revue built around the popular band leader Paul Whiteman. Considered by many to be one of the greatest of the early musical films, it more than lives up to it's publicity as A NEW ERA in sound and color entertainment! Every aspect of the movie was innovative, from the pre-recording of the musical performances, the two color Technicolor, Russell Market's high-precision choreography, an animated color cartoon prologue to a miniaturized orchestra emerging from a giant suitcase and bewitched shoes dancing without benefit of feet, everything smacked of newness.

Universal spent a half million dollars restoring this film in 2016 and it really must be seen on the big screen in all it's Technicolor glory to be appreciated for the work of art that it is!
