2014 Schedule of Movies (Summer movies start at 6pm)
Monday, August 4 — Funny Face — Fred Astaire is cast as as fashion photographer Dick Avery, who is sent out by his female boss Maggie Prescott (Kay Thompson) to find a “new face”. It doesn’t take Dick long to discover Jo (Audrey Hepburn, who does her own singing), an owlish Greenwich Village bookstore clerk. Acting as Pygmalion to Jo’s Galatea, Dick whisks the wide-eyed girl off to Paris and transforms her into the fashion world’s hottest model.
Monday, August 11 – Elmer Gantry — When traveling salesman Elmer Gantry (Burt Lancaster) stumbles into a revival meeting and discovers that he can hustle money in a tent-show as easily as in a saloon, Gantry converts to evangelism. Joining forces with Sister Sharon Falconer (Jean Simmons), he delivers demon-bashing oratories that bring him fame and fortune. But when an old flame (Shirley Jones) re-appears, Gantry is forced to confront demons of a more worldly order — long-buried secrets that will make his saintly life a veritable Hell on Earth!
Monday, August 18 — Auntie Mame — The legendary Rosalind Russell recreates on screen her Broadway triumph as an eccentric grande dame who teaches her 10-year old nephew to appreciate life.
