June 9th, 7:30pm – “Bonnie and Clyde” (1967), starring Faye Dunaway, Warren Beatty, Estelle Parsons, Gene Hackman, Michael J. Pollard, Gene Wilder, directed by Arthur Penn.

Loosely based on the real-life exploits of the infamous 1930’s-era bank-robbing couple, this film follows cocky outlaw Clyde Barrow (Beatty) and renegade moll Bonnie Parker (Dunaway) from love at first heist to their legendary demise in a blaze of gunfire. Embarking on a cross-country crime spree with Clyde’s brother, Buck (Hackman), and his wife, Blanche (Parsons), Clyde is hailed as a Depression-era hero, but the gang’s days are numbered as they try to outrun and outgun the coppers.

June 23rd, 7:30pm – “The Best Years of Our Lives” starring Fredric March, Dana Andrews, Harold Russell, Myrna Loy, Teresa Wright, Cathy O’Donnell, Virginia Mayo, directed by William Wyler.

This groundbreaking movie portrays the plight of returning servicemen at the end of the Second World War. It follows the unique readjustments to civilian life faced by three veterans who hop the same transport home: Fred Derry (Andrews), an officer and pilot coming back to a dead-end job and uncertain relationship; Al Stephenson (March), an older soldier returning to a loving family and stable career; and Homer Parrish (Russell), a sailor who’s lost both his hands in combat, and abhors the pity he expects to receive from his parents and fiancée (O’Donnell).
