FILMS FOR THE 4TH

Have a safe and sane Fourth of July weekend in one of our air-conditioned theaters! The summer movie blockbuster came of age 40 years ago when a killer shark terrorized Independence Day beachgoers on Amity Island in JAWS. Now “Bruce” is back on the big screen at both theaters! Willie Nelson has been celebrating the holiday even longer with an annual music-filled picnic; the filmed 1974 edition of WILLIE NELSON’S 4TH OF JULY CELEBRATION includes performances by Waylon Jennings, Leon Russell and Doug Kershaw. There would be no 4th of July celebration at all were it not for the signing of the Declaration of Independence, immortalized in the musical 1776. And if you’re going out of town for the long weekend, you might want to avoid THE SHINING’s Overlook Hotel – we hear the caretaker is a little unstable.

Series compiled by Grant Moninger. Program notes by John Hagelston.
