Now showing favorite the cool comfort of our air-conditioned Community Room. All are welcome, no registration required!

Nominated for several Oscars, Some Like It Hot ended up the biggest moneymaking comedy up to 1959. Full of hilarious set pieces and movie in-jokes, it has not tarnished with time and in fact seems to get better with each passing year. Not rated.

E.T. movie posterMonday, August 11th at 2:00 p.m. in the Community Room

Now showing favorite the cool comfort of our air-conditioned Community Room. All are welcome, no registration required!

Both a classic movie for kids and a remarkable portrait of childhood, E.T. is a sci-fi adventure that captures that strange moment in youth when the world is a place of mysterious possibilities (some wonderful, some awful), and the universe seems somehow separate from the one inhabited by grown-ups. Rated PG.
