National Lampoon’s Vacation (1983)

Fri & Sat, Sept 20 & 21 @ 7:30

Tickets are $6 for all ages

Tickets are available at City Drug, Crown Drug, Harbor Drug, online, and at the door 45 minutes prior to the show.

Rated R

Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) is consumed with driving his family from Chicago to California for a vacation at Wally World amusement park. Less a vacation than a descent into a peculiarly American kind of hell, the Griswolds suffer a series of catastrophes en route including car trouble, the death of a family member, and a run-in with the law.

When they finally reach Los Angeles, Clark worries that the trip is being derailed again. He’s determined to get his family to the park – whatever it takes. But who’s that beautiful blonde in the red Ferrari?

This is the first film in the Vacation comedy franchise. It’s considered

“One of the more consistent — and thoroughly quotable — screwball comedies of the 1980s.”

Classic comedic duo Bud Abbott and Lou Costello portray two bumbling private detectives in this fast-paced comic thriller.

Newly minted detective school graduates Bud and Lou are minding their business when accused killer Tommy Nelson (Arthur Franz) bursts into their office.

Proclaiming his innocence, Nelson convinces the duo to get him to his beautiful fiancee Helen (Nancy Guild). Just as the police arrive to investigate, Tommy injects himself with an invisibility serum developed by Helen’s uncle.

Nelson convinces Lou to go undercover as a boxer to help flush out the real killer. With Nelson’s unseen assistance, Costello reluctantly goes into the ring as “Lou the Looper” for one of the most hilarious fight sequences ever filmed.

“Party on, dudes!”

Best friends Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) are in danger of flunking history most heinously. If they don’t ace their final history presentation they won’t graduate from high school – and their rock band, Wyld Stallions, will be no more. This would be bogus and uncool!

Bill and Ted get some unexpected help from a time traveler named Rufus (George Carlin).  It seems that in Rufus’s time, Bill and Ted’s music is the foundation of a perfect society. If Wyld Stallyns is disbanded, Rufus’s world will no longer exist. So he shows up with a time-traveling telephone booth. The dudes use it to travel through time, retrieve historical characters, and hopefully ace their history exam. Whoa, gnarly!

But finding historical characters and getting them to the high school are two different things. Will Bill and Ted and company make it to the high school in time to save humanity?

Starring Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, and George Carlin.

Twelve O’Clock High (1949)

Gregory Peck stars as tough-as-nails Gen. Frank Savage in this two-time Academy Award winner (Dean Jagger, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Sound Mixing).

Sat, Nov 2 @ 7:30; Sun, Nov 3 @ 2:00

Tickets are $6 for all ages

Not Rated.

This gritty World War II action drama is regarded as one of the most realistic portrayals of the heroics and perils of war.

Convinced an Air Force commander (Gary Merrill) is at the breaking point, Brigadier General Frank Savage (Gregory Peck) takes over the commander’s struggling bomber group. Kind and understanding but no pushover, Savage adopts a crushing discipline to revitalize the demoralized troop.

At first resentful and rebellious, the flyers gradually change as Savage guides them to amazing feats. But the stress of command soon takes its toll and the weary general reaches his own breaking point.

Gregory Peck described Twelve O’Clock High as a film of “daring and exceptional honesty” and the role of General Savage as “the most satisfying I’ve ever played.”

Twelve O’Clock High is also one of the first Hollywood films to deal with the psychological effects of war on combatants.

Starring Gregory Peck, Hugh Marlowe, and Gary Merrill. Peck won the New York Film Critics Circle Award for Best Actor, 1950.

Locally sponsored by Rick Anderson, Coleman Mortuary, Pasha Automotive Services, Mary Thornton, Wunderland Childcare Centers, Alpha Media Grays Harbor, and Jodesha Broadcasting.
