Inspired by Hajime Isayama’s popular manga series, the first of this two-part live-action horror-fantasy finds teen friends Eren (Haruma Miura), Armin (Kanata Hongo) and Mikasa (Kiko Mizuhara) wondering about the world beyond a protective wall, built after a devastating attack a century earlier.
We continue our survey of the Aero’s 75-year existence with 1983's SCARFACE, from director Brian De Palma. Al Pacino is stupendously larger-than-life as twisted Tony Montana, a two-bit Little Caesar who almost singlehandedly creates anarchy in the Miami underworld, destroying not only himself but everyone around him.
In the star-studded SHIP OF FOOLS, as an ocean-liner travels from Mexico to Germany in 1933, no one on board suspects the dark future ahead as the Nazis rise to power. It's followed by another standout Stanley Kramer drama, THE DEFIANT ONES, starring Tony Curtis as a jailbird who finds himself chained body and soul to fellow convict Sidney Poitier. Actresses Barbara Luna (SHIP OF FOOLS) and Cara Williams (THE DEFIANT ONES), and Karen Sharpe-Kramer and Kat Kramer introduce.
