Charade  (1963) 1hr. 55min

February 3rd @ 1:30PM

The greatest Hitchcock film that Hitchcock never filmed. Stanley Donen’s Paris-set mystery has it all: comedy, romance, thrills, and suspense. Reggie Lampert (Audrey Hepburn), the recent widow of a murdered husband finds herself threatened by an unsavory and increasingly desperate trio (James Coburn, George Kennedy, Ned Glass), who are convinced she holds the key to the $250,000 they stole fair and square 20 years ago. She is aided in her predicament by a suave mystery man (Cary Grant) and an unlikely CIA agent (Walter Matthau).

Return to me  (2000) 1hr. 55min

February 10th @ 1:30PM

A perfect film for Valentine’s Day, all about hearts - broken and healing. He (David Duchovny, of X Files fame) lost his wife in an accident and donated her organs. She (Minnie Driver), suffering from heart failure, got the transplant. He now goes through the motions of living; she feels guilty about living when another person died. Then they meet and feel an immediate affinity. Now what? With Carroll O’Connor and Robert Loggia as the grandfather and elder who look after her, and Bonnie Hunt and Jim Belushi as the couple closest to her.

Night Shift  (1982) 1hr. 45min

February 17th @ 1:30PM

Ex stockbroker Chuck Lumley (Henry Winkler, playing the antithesis of his cool Fonzie character from Happy Days) has it all: a dead-end job at the city morgue, a hen-pecking fiancée (Gina Hecht), and a nagging mother (Nita Talbot). Then he acquires a kooky (to say the least) co-worker, Bill Blazejowski (Michael Keaton, in his breakout feature-film role), helps his next-door neighbor (Shelley Long), who just happens to be a prostitute, and who was roughed up by a client because she’s lacking a mack [pimp]—and his life suddenly changes. Ron Howard (Winkler’s Happy Days co-star) directed this, the funniest movie you’ll ever see about procuring.

An Unfinished Life  (2005) 1hr. 48min

February 24th @ 1:30PM

Rancher Einar Gilkyson (Robert Redford) is a bitter man living alone with only the company of his friend, Mitch Bradley (Morgan Freeman), who’s an invalid after having been mauled by a bear. Then Einar’s estranged daughter-in-law, Jean (Jennifer Lopez), whom he blames for his son’s death, shows up with Griff (Becca Gardner), the 12-year-old granddaughter he never knew he had, and his life changes. A beautiful film that should be better known. See it, and you’ll understand why.
