Thursday, July 10 at 7:00pm / CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND: Spielberg’s thrilling, suspenseful and somehow very human speculation on the possibility of alien contact with mankind was one of the most surprising blockbusters of the 1970s, an awe-inspiring melding of suburban angst and sci-fi magic.

Saturday, July 12 at 7:00pm / RAIDERS OF THE LOST ARK: Simply put, there is perhaps no greater (or more fun) action/adventure flick than Raiders of the Lost Ark, the first and indisputably best of the initial three Indiana Jones movies cooked up by the dream team of director Steven Spielberg and producer George Lucas.

Thursday, July 17 at 7:00pm / JURASSIC PARK: Spielberg’s blockbuster prehistoric creature feature Jurassic Park was advertised as “An Adventure 65 Million Years in the Making,” and that about sums things up in this pulse-pounding thrill-ride that made the whole world go dino-crazy.

Thursday, July 24 at 7:00pm / POLTERGEIST: A funhouse thriller about an all-American family battling a very cranky haunted house, Poltergeist effectively taps into an avalanche of primal childhood fears, unleashing some of the most pleasurably spine-tingling chills of any ‘80s horror film, (Dir. by Tobe Hooper / Prod. by Steven Spielberg, 1982, USA, 114 min., Rated PG) 35mm

Saturday, July 26 at 7:00pm / THE GOONIES: This totally awesome ‘80s adventure, a rip-roaring, rollercoaster ride of movie that delivers the fun no matter how many times one has seen it, helped convince an entire generation of suburban kids that there was buried treasure in their backyards.

Thursday, July 31 at 7:00pm / BACK TO THE FUTURE: An endlessly watchable time-tripping adventure, a film so iconic it made down vests and Huey Lewis cool, Back to the Future was the biggest movie of 1985, and it still holds up today as one of the most hilarious, joyous, and thrilling action comedies of all time. (Dir. by Robert Zemeckis, 1985, USA, 116 min., Rated PG) Digital
