Wednesday, May 26, 2021 — "American Graffiti"
Let George Lucas transport you to 1962, to a moment when all you had to worry about was your car, your music and your friends. Before he made Star Wars, Lucas made this iconic film that has served as a cultural touchstone since its launch in 1973. "American Graffiti" is a nostalgic, semi-autobiographical look at the American teenager in small-town California before the sixties kicked in and changed everything. Nominated for five Oscars; winner of four Golden Globes including Best Comedy/Musical, as well as named to the National Film Preservation Board’s top 100 films ever made.

Wednesday, June 2, 2021 — "Apollo 13"
"Apollo 13," director Ron Howard's soaring salute to space exploration, lifts off with a payload of the right stuff-courage, can-do, and grace under pressure. It chronicles one of the most dramatic of all spaceflights, an American catastrophe that became an American victory, and it does this in a way that's so authentic, so brilliant in its technical details, that it succeeds in putting us on that ship. The film was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including Best Picture (winning for Best Film Editing and Best Sound). It also won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Cast in a Motion Picture, as well as two British Academy Film Awards. Tickets: cameocinema.com/movie/apollo-13---drive-in
Wednesday, June 9, 2021 — "Mission: Impossible"
"Mission: Impossible" is a sleek, entertaining update of the vintage television series. When U.S. government operative Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise) and his mentor, Jim Phelps (Jon Voight), go on a covert assignment that takes a disastrous turn, Jim is killed, and Ethan becomes the prime murder suspect. Director Brian De Palma remains a virtuoso puppet-master, pulling the strings taut in a nail-biting robbery sequence, switching from micro to macro with Hitchcockian panache, and finally letting rip with a hell-for-leather climax.
