April Film Schedule

•April 9 at 10 a.m. — Some Like It Hot, starring Marilyn Monroe, Tony Curtis and Jack Lemmon. 121 minutes. 1959. Not rated.

This movie whirls through the flamboyant settings of Chicago and Miami Beach in 1929. Sugar Kane (Monroe) is a ukulele-playing vocalist in an all-girl band. Two musicians (Curtis and Lemmon) on the run from the mob join Sugar’s traveling troupe by hilariously donning make-up and dresses to hide their identity.

•April 9 at 2 p.m. — Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig, Judi Dench and Javier Bardem. 143 minutes. 2012. Rated PG-13.

In Skyfall, Bond’s loyalty to M is tested as her past comes back to haunt her. As MI6 comes under attack, 007 must track down and destroy the threat, no matter how personal the cost.

•April 16 at 10 a.m. — Cat Ballou, starring Jane Fonda and Lee Marvin. 96 minutes. 1965. Rated G.

Marvin, riding his inebriated palomino, won an Academy Award as Best Actor of the year for his performance as the drunkest gunfighter in the West, one of the few times in the long history of the coveted Oscar that a comic role was so honored.

•April 16 at 2 p.m. — RV, starring Robin Williams, Kristin Chenoweth, Jeff Daniels and Cheryl Hines. 98 minutes. 2006. Rated PG.

Overworked executive Bob McNeive is about to embark on the most dangerous adventure of his life — a two-week cross-country trip in an RV with his family! Bob has an agenda for the trip that his wife and kids do not know, but through a series of misadventures, he inadvertently learns the true meaning of family.

•April 23 at 10 a.m. — In Search of the Castaways, starring Hayley Mills, Maurice Chevalier and George Sanders. 98 minutes. 1962. Rated G.

This movie was Mills' third feature for Disney, an agreeable adventure — loosely based on a Jules Verne story — with enough derring-do to make kids happy and with the right touch of self-conscious silliness to keep adults smiling. Mills plays Mary Grant, a missing freighter captain's daughter convinced her father is still alive somewhere in Earth's southern hemisphere. With the help of her brother (Keith Hamshire) and a veteran seaman (an extremely unlikely if charming Chevalier), Mary convinces a shipping magnate, Lord Glenarvan (Wilfrid Hyde-White), to set sail and find the missing Captain Grant.

•April 23 at 2 p.m. — Flight, starring Denzel Washington, John Goodman and Don Cheadle. 138 minutes. 2012. Rated R.

Whip Whitaker is a seasoned airline pilot who miraculously crash lands his plane after a mid-air catastrophe, saving nearly every soul on board. After the crash, Whip is hailed as a hero, but as more is learned, more questions than answers arise as to who or what was really at fault and what really happened on that plane.

•April 30 at 10 a.m. — Back to the Future, starring Michael J. Fox and Christopher Lloyd. 115 minutes. 1985. Rated PG.

A teenager is accidentally sent 30 years into the past in a time-traveling DeLorean invented by his friend, Dr. Emmett Brown, and must make sure his high school-age parents unite in order to save his own existence.

•April 30 at 2 p.m. — Anna Karenina, starring Keira Knightley, Aaron Johnson and Jude Law. 130 minutes. 2012. Rated R (ages 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult).

The story unfolds in its original late 19th century Russia high-society setting and powerfully explores the capacity for love that surges through the human heart, from the passion between adulterers to the bond between a mother and her children. As Anna questions her happiness, change comes to her family, friends and community.
