“It Happened One Night” Our first in a series of “Silver Screen Classics,” this 1934 Frank Capra comedy was the first to win all five major Oscars (best actor, actress, director, screenplay, & picture). The film, composed mostly of a road trip (by bus, car, foot, and by thumb in locales such as bus depots or interiors of buses, and the open road) by the social-class-unmatched couple (Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert), contains some of the most classic scenes ever made: See why this is considered one of the greatest romantic comedies in film history.

“But, I’m a Cheerleader” Megan is a “normal” girl who’s one of the best cheerleaders along with having the captain of the football team as the perfect boyfriend. But there are some very “abnormal” things about her: hanging posters of girls in her locker and listening to Melissa Ethridge. Her parents and friends send her off to “sexual redirection” school, full of admitted misfits, so she can learn how to be straight. Will Megan be turned around or will she succumb to her love for the beautiful Graham? Discussion follows.

“4 Little Girls” Spike Lee’s film recounts the bombing of the 16th Street Church in Birmingham. In that attack, four African-American girls lost their lives and a nation was simultaneously revolted, angered, and galvanized to push for equality and justice. Lee focuses on the girls’ friends, families, and the historic figures of the era. They’ve grown up since the bombing but their memories haven’t faded. Film showing @ Felix Pinckney Community Center, E. Montague & Hassel Avenues. ALL seats $2 thru sponsorship of Liberty Hill Improvement Council and Hilton’s Mortuary. Discussion follows.
