BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S (1961) - Based on the novel by Truman Capote and directed by Blake Edwards, this unforgettable gem of a romantic comedy stars the incomparable Audrey Hepburn at the height of her beauty and talent. Hepburn is mesmerizing as Holly Golightly, a Manhattan party girl who doesn't quite grasp when parties end and reality begins. Sharing Holly's lifestyle is handsome young writer Paul Varjack (George Peppard). No matter what scrape Holly manages to get into, Paul is always there to pick up the pieces. But Paul is trying to make something of himself and Holly is trying to create something of herself. Will Holly realize that there's more to life than being kept in a style to which she's become accustomed? Will Paul ever convince Holly that he deserves more from her than "brotherly" love? Micky Rooney as Holly's Japanese landlord, O.J. Berman as Holly's Hollywood agent, Patricia Neal as Paul's patron, and Buddy Epsen as Holly's ex-husband round out a perfect cast delivering peak performances. Henri Mancini's musical score and the song "Moon River" sung by Audrey Hepburn earned Oscars.

THE GOONIES (1985) - Precocious, misfit kids discover a pirate map and begin a heart-pounding adventure to find treasure.
On the wrong side of the tracks in a seaside town, a land developer prepares to tear down a block of houses in order to build a golf course. A band of neighborhood kids, who call themselves the Goonies, are about to see an end to their adventures together. Facing eviction from their homes, the Goonies find an old Spanish map and go on the trail of a lost pirate treasure. This is Stephen Spielberg's homage to classic children's adventure films - but the Goonies are real kids: vulgar, insensitive, profane, cunning, and combative. Director Richard Donner hurls plot twists, thrills, laughs, stunts, and special effects across the screen at breakneck speed, and the cast of precocious child actors (Sean Astin, Martha Plimpton, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman, and Anne Ramsey) is unforgettable.
Movie classics feature 35mm film prints, a newsreel, cartoon, previews, Dec-O-Win raffle, and a live Wurlitzer organ serenade. Purchase advance tickets here and enter to win a pair of tickets by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with "The Goonies" in the subject line.

Night of the Iguana is showing at Paramount Theatre on June 20.
Come see Defrocked Episcopal clergyman Dr. T. Lawrence Shannon (Richard Burton) leads a busload of middle-aged Baptist women on a tour of the Mexican coast. Driven to distraction by the hostility of the group's leader (Grayson Hall) and the attentions of a seductive teenager (Sue Lyons), Reverend Shannon has an alcoholic breakdown and hijacks the group off of the scheduled tour through the Mexican jungle to a dilapidated hotel owned by an old friend's wife (Ava Gardner). A budding relationship with an itinerant artist (Deborah Kerr) may be Shannon's last hope of exorcising his demons of insanity and alcoholism. Shannon has literally reached the end of the road and now he has no choice but to come to terms with the failure and self-destruction haunting his life. Director John Huston's riveting screen adaptation of Tennessee Williams’ play garnered the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress (Grayson Hall) and a Best Costume Design Oscar for Dorothy Jeakins.
Win tickets to the classic film by emailing your FIRST and LAST name to RSVP@sfmediaco.com.
