  • Charlton Heston brings a physical and moral presence to his Best Actor Oscar®-winning role of Judah Ben-Hur, a Jewish nobleman in Palestine whose heroic odyssey includes enslavement by the Romans, vengeance against his tormentors during a furious arena chariot race and fateful encounters with Jesus Christ.

    Best Director Oscar® winner William Wyler masterfully grips the reins of an enduring and spellbinding spectacular.

  • The Nun’s Story is an unforgettable revelation of the seldom-seen world behind convent walls. 

    A radiant Audrey Hepburn portrays a nun whose life journey takes her from the staff of a mental asylum to a much-desired position as a surgical nurse in the Belgian Congo. But when she returns to her native Belgium as WWII breaks out, she is torn between the needs of the Resistance and the church’s neutrality.  Directed by four-time Academy Award-winner, The Nun’s Story earned eight Oscar nominations including Best Picture, New York Film Critics Awards for Best Actress and Director and National Board of Review Awards for Best Picture, Director and Supporting Actress (Edith Evans).

  • On one side is an army of gunmen dead-set on springing a murderous sidekick from jail. On the other is Sheriff John T. Chance and his two deputies: one a drunk, the other a cripple. Place your bets. 

    John Wayne is Chance in Rio Bravo, a lean Western classic packing solid heroics and a strong emotional core. He’s joined by Dean Martin as the deputy coming off a two-year drunk, Walter Brennan as the old coot whose spirit outmatches his hobbled stride, Ricky Nelson as a youth out to prove himself and Angie Dickinson as a scarlet woman with her eye on Chance. Director Howard Hawks lifted the Western to new heights with Red River. Capturing the legendary West with a stellar cast in peak form, he does it again here.

  • Cary Grant is the screen’s supreme man-on-the-run in his fourth and final teaming with Master of Suspense Alfred Hitchcock. 

    He plays a Manhattan adman plunged into a realm of spy (James Mason) and counterspy (Eva Marie Saint) and variously abducted, framed for murder, chased, and in a signature set-piece, crop-dusted. He also hangs for dear life from the facial features of Mount Rushmore’s Presidents. Savour one of Hollywood’s most enjoyable thrillers ever in this State-of-the-Art Restoration: its Renewed Picture Vitality will leave you just as breathless as the chase itself.

  • "I’m not living with you," Maggie snaps at Brick. “We occupy the same cage, that’s all.” The raw emotions and crackling dialogue of Tennessee Williams’ 1955 Pulitzer Prize-winning play rumble like a thunderstorm in this film version whose fiery performances and grown-up themes made it a box-office hit.

    Paul Newman earned his first Oscar® nomination for his nuanced portrayal of troubled former sports hero Brick. Capturing her second, Elizabeth Taylor makes Maggie the Cat, digging her claws in and holding onto life not as it is , but as she hopes it someday will be, a vivid portrait of passionate loyalty.

  • When a dazzling American showgirl captures the monocled eye of an imperious European monarch, it’s clear proof opposites attract. And who could be more attractive opposites than luminous Marilyn Monroe and suave Laurence Olivier (who also produced and directed) as The Prince and the Showgirl? 

    He’s Prince Regent of Carpathia, an arrogant stuffed shirt visiting London for the 1911 coronation of King George V. She’s Elsie Marina of Milwaukee, short on social graces but long on common sense, in London as a third-blonde-from-the-left Gaiety Girl. Their liaison is an eye-opener – and it soon gets hazy as to who’s seducing whom. With Olivier’s style, Monroe’s radiance and the wit of Terence Rattigan’s script (adapting his play The Sleeping Prince), your heart and funnybone truly receive the royal treatment.

  • Academy Award winner Henry Fonda stars in director Alfred Hitchcock's real-life thriller of an innocent man trapped as the victim of a heartless criminal justice system, even though he's The Wrong Man.

    When an eyewitness to a robbery identifies musician Christopher Balestrero (Fonda) as the culprit, Balestrero cannot prove where he was on the day of the crime. Now, the wheels of justice, driven by the testimony of witnesses, mercilessly grind away the life of a man who looks remarkably like the real thief.

  • Giant is a movie of huge scale and grandeur in which three generations of land-rich Texans love, swagger, connive and clash in a saga of family strife, racial bigotry and conflict between cattle barons and newly rich oil tycoons.

    It’s also one of the most beloved works of director George Stevens, who won an Academy Award® for this film, one of 10 Oscar® nominations the film earned.

  • An imperturbable English gentleman, played by the urbane David Niven, attempts to completely circumnavigate the world in eighty days in order to win a large wager. But is he also conveniently missing from London as an investigation into a robbery at the Bank Of England begins? 

    A lavish production featuring many notable actors of the period including Noel Coward, John Gielgud and Trevor Howard and filmed in over 100 different locations around the world. Winner of 5 Oscars including Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Musical Score and unsurprisingly Best Cinematography (1957).

  • Vibrant orange sunflowers. Rippling yellow grain. Trees bursting with white bloom. “The pictures come to me as in a dream,” Vincent Van Gogh said. A dream that too often turned to life-shattering nightmare. Winner of Golden Globe and New York Film Critics Best Actor Awards, Kirk Douglas gives a fierce portrayal as the artist torn between the joyous inspiration of genius and the dark desperation of his tormented mind. 

    The obsessed Van Gogh painted the way other men breathe, driving away family and friends, including artist Paul Gauguin (1956 Best Supporting Actor Academy Award winner Anthony Quinn). Directed by Vincente Minnelli and saturated with the hues of Van Gogh’s sea, field and sky, Lust for Life captures the ecstasy of art. And the agony of one man’s life.
