  • In the Watergate Building, lights go on and four burglars are caught in the act. That night triggered revelations that drove a U.S. President from office. Washington reporters Bob Woodward (Robert Redford) and Carl Bernstein (Dustin Hoffman) grabbed the story and stayed with it through doubts, denials and discouragement. All the President’s Men is their story. 

    Directed by Alan J. Pakula and based on the Woodward/Bernstein book, the film won four 1976 Academy Awards® (Best Supporting Actor/ Jason Robards, Adaptation Screenplay/William Goldman, Art Direction and Sound). It also explores a working newspaper, where the mission is to get the story — and get it right.

  • Three soulful sisters rise out of Harlem to become music’s hottest singing group in this rags-to-riches tale of glitz, glamour and the high price of fame. 

    Against the vibrant grooves of Curtis Mayfield, these divas explode onto the scene with off-the-hook harmonies and a sexy style that catapult them to superstardom – but not every fairytale has a happy ending. When success leads to excess, one sister’s star will fade, while another’s will sparkle. Starring Academy Award®-winner* Irene Cara (Fame, Flashdance), Lonette McKee (ATL, Round Midnight), Dwan Smith and Philip Michael Thomas, this inspiring story of struggle and hope is guaranteed to put a song in your heart.

  • When Detective Harry Callahan stops a liquor store hostage standoff in his own no-nonsense way, he gets busted back to personnel. But not for long. When terrorists rob an arms warehouse and go on a bloody extortion spree, San Francisco’s leaders quickly seek out Callahan – The Enforcer.

    Clint Eastwood returns for his third Callahan caper, joined this time by a new partner, Tyne Daly as Inspector Kate Moore, who has two jobs: tracking down the terrorists – and winning Harry’s confidence. Stoked with brisk humour, hard-hitting mayhem and the high-impact team of Eastwood and Daly, this exciting outing carves another winning notch in the handle of Harry’s .44 magnum.

  • When free-spirited petty crook Randle P. McMurphy (Jack Nicholson) arrives at the state mental hospital, his contagious sense of disorder jolts the routine. He’s on one side of a brewing war, soft-spoken, coolly monstrous Nurse Ratched (Louise Fletcher) on the other. 

    At stake is the fate of every patient on the ward. This electrifying adaptation of Ken Kesey’s bestseller swept all five major 1975 Academy Awards®: Best Picture (produced by Saul Zaentz and Michael Douglas), Actor (Nicholson), Actress (Fletcher), Director (Milos Forman) and Adapted Screenplay (Lawrence Hauben and Bo Goldman). Raucous, searing and with a superb cast that includes Brad Dourif, Danny DeVito and Christopher Lloyd in his film debut, it soars.

  • On a hot Brooklyn afternoon, two optimistic nobodies set out to rob a bank. Sonny (Al Pacino) is the mastermind, Sal (John Cazale) is the follower and disaster is the result. Because the cops, crowds, TV cameras and even the pizza man have arrived. 

    Pacino and director Sidney Lumet (collaborators on Serpico) reteam for this boisterous comedy thriller that earned six Academy Award® nominations (including Best Picture) and won an Oscar® for Frank Pierson’s streetwise screenplay.

  • The world’s tallest building is skyscraping testimony to ingenuity and innovation. In the hands of “Master of Disaster” film producer Irwin Allen (The Poseidon Adventure), it’s also the world’s tallest matchstick.  

    An all-star cast gathers for this tall story of lofty dimensions: eight Academy Award® nominations and three Oscars®. On the night of the building’s dedication, fire erupts, trapping people on the upper floors… and igniting multiple tales of heroism and loss involving a firefighter (Steve McQueen), an architect (Paul Newman) and others caught in the steel-and-glass inferno (including William Holden, Faye Dunaway, Fred Astaire and Jennifer Jones). With star power, pyrotechnics and suspense in abundance, The Towering Inferno sizzled at box offices worldwide.

  • A proud woman in red draws leers and admiration. A bosomy tobacconist sparks the fantasies of adolescent boys. A mentally challenged uncle takes refuge in a tree and announces: “I want a woman!“ They are among moments and events knit by memory… and a legendary filmmaker in peak form.

    Amarcord, which means “I remember,” is Federico Fellini’s lusty, often funny look at growing-up perhaps not unlike his own. The setting is a village in 1930s Italy. Teen hormones are surging. Family, church and friendship are proving grounds of love and loyalty. Fascism’s rise is just down the street. Sex is around any corner. And life viewed in the local cinema is a touchstone for life lived. The memories, big and small, endure. So does the appeal of this Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award® winner.

  • “My name is Jim, but most people call me... Jim”. And while Blazing Saddles is deliriously funny, most people call it deliriously funnier.

    Filmmaker, star and paddle-ball wiz Mel Brooks goes way out West and way out of his mind with a spiffy spoof set in an 1874 Old West where 1974 Hollywood is just one soundstage away – and where nonstop fun blasts prejudices to the high comedy heavens. Cleavon Little, Gene Wilder, Slim Pickens, Harvey Korman, Madeline Kahn and more join for horseplay and horselaughs, making Blazing Saddles the #6 choice among the American Film Institute’s Top-100 comedies.

  • The belief in evil — and that evil can be cast out. From these two strands of faith, author William Peter Blatty and director William Friedkin wove The Exorcist, the frightening and realistic story of an innocent girl inhabited by a malevolent entity.  

    Academy Award™ winner Friedkin, who introduces the film and supervised this new video transfer from restored picture and audio elements, gets effective performances from Linda Blair, Ellen Burstyn, Jason Miller, Max von Sydow and Lee J. Cobb. Winner of 1973 Oscars® for Best Adapted Screenplay (by Blatty) and Best Sound, The Exorcist remains,40 years later, one of the most shocking and gripping movies ever made.

  • Academy Award winner Clint Eastwood stars as San Francisco Police Inspector Harry Callahan better known as "Dirty Harry" because of the tough way he pursues criminals in this bare-knuckled action film.

    Investigating the assassinations of crime bosses, Dirty Harry discovers the killers are police who, frustrated by the judicial system, have vowed to rid the city of crime by any means -even killing fellow police officers.
