Friday, January 31st

The Birds (1963)
1:30 p.m.

The reason everyone hates crows. See Hitchcock’s infested San Francisco on the big screen to kick off your weekend the creepy way. Fair warning: you might be dodging pigeons more than you usually do on the way back to your apartment.  

A Star is Born (1954)
7:00 p.m.
Museum of the Moving Image

Part of the continuing series, See it Big! Musicals, it’s Judy Garland’s performance that solidified her iconic status. Garland's flawlessness set a precedent for movie musicals to come and spawned many future theater renditions.

SLC Punk (1999)
12:00 a.m.
Landmark Sunshine

Stevo is anything but a sell-out. Leaving law school in the dust in a valiant effort to pursue his punk rock star calling, he takes his buddy Heroin Bob and his loyal girlfriend Trish along for the ride. Plus, director James Merendino will introduce the screening himself! Time to head to Ricky’s for some blue hair dye…  

Road House (1989)
11:45 a.m. (same time Sunday)

Crazy for Swayze? Of course you are! Here, he plays Dalton – the calm, collected fixer-upper. He’s the guy who whips failing bars into shape, but he has yet to tackle his biggest challenge yet – Road House. Mullets, muscles, and those dance moves – it’s classic Swayze in all his glory.  

Sunday, February 2nd

Shane (1953)
11:00 a.m.
Film Forum

See George Stevens' Western that ultimately defined Westerns in a gorgeous new restoration. Not only did Stevens concretely shape a genre with his sweeping landscape shots of the plains, he made Alan Ladd the legend he is today – not just as an actor but as an iconic screen presence.  

Groundhog Day (1993)
12:00 p.m.

How fitting! See Bill Murray desperately try to escape the ultimate curse of Déjà vu in Harold Ramis’ sentimental comedic ode to living life in the moment even when you feel you're drowning in monotony.
