This year's Summer Classic Movie Series wraps up this month with four final fantastic films! Join us on Friday, August 19th for the opening night of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD(1962.) A beautiful and deeply affecting adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Harper Lee, this classic drama retains a timeless quality that remains powerfully resonant in present-day America with its advocacy of tolerance, justice, integrity, and loving, responsible parenthood. Sponsored by Brian Carney and the Western Bar Circuit Association, with cocktail reception at 6:30p catered by Champy's.
Next up is Spike Lee's 1989 groundbreaking joint, DO THE RIGHT THING, centered around one scorching inner-city day, when racial tensions reach the boiling point in a tough Brooklyn neighborhood. Sponsored by Todd Kelly and Mark Weathersby.
Then it's back to school with a double dose of Amy Heckerling's classic coming-of-age comedies: FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH (1982), following a group of highschool students growing up in southern California, based on the real-life adventures chronicled by Cameron Crowe, sponsored by Little Kings Shuffle Club.
And the stylish and sassy CLUELESS (1995), a modern satirical twist on Jane Austin's classic novel, Emma. With a local fashion show event inspired by the film, featuring looks by local stylists using items from local clothing boutiques. A handful of "characters" from the movie will walk the runway bringing you all the best looks from the movie. A panel of fashionistas will emcee the event, and there will be a prize given for whoever in the audience has the, like, totally most rad 90's look at the show! Saturday, August 27th: Doors at 6:30p, Fashion Show at 7p, followed by the movie on the big screen at 8:30p!
