Some Like it Hot. When Chicago musicians Joe (Tony Curtis) and Jerry (Jack Lemmon) accidentally witness a gangland shooting, they quickly board a train to Florida, disguised as Josephine and Daphne.

Brown) falls for Daphne, and a mob boss (George Raft) refuses to fall for their hoax! August 15-18


Dog Day Afternoon. Based on the true story about a bank robbery gone haywire one hot August day when two optimistic losers, the frantic master-mind Sonny, and his slow-witted buddy Sal, attempt to rob a Brooklyn bank. The Dog. Filmed over the course of a 10-year period interweaving archival footage on the robbery, 70’s era interviews and the early gay liberation movement in which “The Dog” played an active role, the documentary captures the many sides of John Wojtowicz’s larger-than-life persona: he is, by turns lover, husband, soldier, lover, activist, New Yorker, mama’s boy and bank robber. August 17


Pump up the Volume. A loner student (Christian Slater) from the east enrolls at a highly rated Southwest high school, in a sleepy suburb of Phoenix, Arizona and secretly provokes a mini-rebellion in the student body via his pirate radio station. Also starring Samantha Mathis, in her first feature role. August 22-25


The Endless Summer. The crown jewel to ten years of Bruce Brown surfing documentaries. Brown follows two young surfers around the world in search of the perfect wave, and ends up finding quite a few in addition to some colorful local characters. August 26 & 28


One Crazy Summer. In this madcap comedy, Demi Moore plays Cassandra and John Cusack is Hoops McCann, two people who eventually fall in love. Hoops is a cartoonist working on a teen love story that he hopes will get him accepted into art school. Cassandra is a troubled young woman about to lose her home to a money-hungry developer. They’re out of school, out on Nantucket, and out of their minds. With this crowd, anything can happen! August 29-September 1
