Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (PG) + How to Marry a Millionaire (PG)
Marilyn was a modern day Cinderella. Born in poverty and cast off by her mentally unwell mother into a string of foster homes, it was this vulnerability combined with flashes of intelligence and wit that made this blonde bombshell so accessible and so loved by her audiences.
These two fun romps provide some iconic Marilyn moments and established her star image as the 'dumb blonde'. She did have a desire to play serious roles, but was quote as saying 'Hollywood's a place where they'll pay you a $US1,000 for your kiss, and 50 cents for your soul'.
G & PG
Join us for an old-fashioned movie night with two superb British comedies!
The Titfield Thunderbolt is about a group of villagers trying to keep their train line operating after British Railways decided to close it. It was one of the first colour comedies made in the UK and shot in Technicolour.
The screenplay for the Ladykillers was nominated for an Academy Award and won the BAFTA for Best British Screenplay. The plot revolves around five diverse oddball criminal types planning a bank robbery who rent rooms on a cul-de-sac from an octogenarian widow under the pretext that they are classical musicians. It stars the very excellent Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.
The bar will be open from 6pm with the piano tinkling in the foyer. The mighty WurliTzer will play and Haigh's trays will be doing the rounds with all of your favourite cinema goodies for sale.
Hitchcock was the master of suspense and these two titles see him at his best and at the height of his popularity. Both stories are well known, but have you seen them on the big screen?
Often dubbed as B movies by the Hollywood establishment, Hitchcock proved the suits wrong again and again, because he understood better than any filmmaker at the time what audiences really want...to be shocked and frightened.
Geez, we really are a bunch of masochists.

It's time for a little nostalgic nineties action for Father's Day this year.
Terminator 2 rates as one of the greatest action films of all time, not just for the cutting edge special effects at the time, but a gripping story and stellar performances by Linda Hamilton and Arnie...well playing a robot is perfect for him!
And you can't have nineties action without Van Damme! We've got a nice link here with killer cyborgs featuring in another battle of good and evil.

These two psychological horror films are regarded as the best ever made and have scared us senseless so make sure you bring a good friend who likes a squeal and you're not embarrased in front of.
There'll be head spinning and door axing ahoy.
An interesting link to the two films is that Stanley Kubrick reportedly turned down the role of Director for The Exorcist.
