Classic Tuesdays

Set aside some reel time. Relive the moment—or fill your cinematic gaps—with our series of classic films.

Classic screenings occur once a month, usually at 7:30 p.m.

Besides revisiting the best of Hollywood, you also have opportunity to indulge your desire for international favorites, such as Fellini, Truffaut and more! Screening foreign films allows you to practice language skills, soak in international ambience, expand your understanding of different world views—and enjoy an experience that many film fans only dream of.

You know there’s nothing like watching these stories unfold on a giant screen! You have been lending tremendous support to this series, and we appreciate your enthusiasm.

Coming up:

Classic Tuesdays

Nov. 7Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn and George Peppard, in a story of glamour, ambition and love. Based on Truman Capote’s novella, the story gets a different touch from director Blake Edwards. He made the story contemporary to the 1960s–and propelled Audrey Hepburn to iconic status.

Holiday Classic Screenings

Mon. Oct. 23The Silence of the Lambs, shot in a bevy of locations across the Pittsburgh area, including Pittsburgh International Airport, Shaler, Glenwillard, McKeesport and the old Allegheny County Jail and the Carnegie Museum of Natural History.  It became the third film to win Academy Awards in acting (both Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster), producing, directing and screenwriting and is considered one of the top 25 movies of all time by International Movie Data Base Users.

Nov. 14The Wizard of Oz, which proves nothing says “ready for the holidays” like ordinary folks who are big-hearted dreamers and flying monkeys.

Nov. 24 (sing-along) and Nov. 25The Sound of Music, connect with your inner Julie Andrews and Christopher Plummer as you sing and/or listen to the film that shares the lure of freedom against harsh odds while watching the musical that won five Oscars.

Dec. 5Christmas Vacation, the Griswold family disaster of a holiday.

Dec. 12Miracle on 34th Street, what happens when the real Santa emerges.

Dec. 19It’s a Wonderful Life, Jimmy Stewart, Donna Reed and a look at the impact of one man’s life.
