"Recycle, Remake, Reboot" - Storytellers have been reusing material for centuries, retelling the same narratives and revisiting the same characters in oral traditions, written word, theater, and, yes, in filmmaking. This series examines the stories that we choose to tell time and again – from adaptations of classic literature to reboots of popular film series and remakes of earlier classics. Join us to see the same old stories evolve in new and wonderful ways. 

Upcoming Film Friday Events

Film Friday - Romeo and Juliet

Friday, April 25, 2014 6:00 PM

Romeo and Juliet (1968) Rated G, 138 minutes. Perhaps more than any other cinematic adaptation of Shakespeare, Franco Zeffirelli's film demonstrates how exhilarating the experience of watching a Shakespearean play can be. Romeo and Juliet is magnificent as a scholarly interpretation, as pure entertainment, and as one of the most beautiful, tragic and famous stories ever told.

Friday, May 02, 2014 6:00 PM

Goldfinger (1964) Rated PG, 108 minutes. Considered to be among the most entertaining of all the Bond films, it was also responsible for the first wave of "Bondmania" in the ‘60s. James Bond, as portrayed by Sean Connery in this incarnation, confronts an evil genius, Goldfinger, who plans to steal all the gold in Fort Knox. Goldfinger also has the disturbing habit of painting beautiful women gold.

Film Friday - True Grit

Friday, May 23, 2014 6:00 PM

True Grit (2010) Rated PG-13, 109 minutes. Jeff Bridges had big boots to fill after John Wayne’s iconic performance as Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 version of True Grit. And he did it with a “Duke”- worthy growl and saunter all his own.  This version retells the story of a tough U.S. Marshal who helps a stubborn young woman track down her father's murderer in the dangerous Indian territory.

Friday, May 30, 2014 6:00 PM

Mansfield Park (1999) Rated PG-13, 112 minutes. This effervescent retelling of one of Jane Austen’s lesser-known novels features wonderful performances and intriguing insights into her often staid characters. At 12, Fanny Price, a poor relation, goes to live at Mansfield Park, the estate of her aunt's husband, Sir Thomas. Fanny is soon possessed of beauty as well as a keen mind and must learn to negotiate the romantic politics of Georgian England.

Film Friday - Star Trek

Friday, June 06, 2014 6:00 PM

Star Trek (2009) Rated PG-13, 126 minutes. The franchise that spawned millions of Trekkies (or Trekkers, if you prefer), finds new life. In this new classic, the fate of the galaxy rests in the hands of bitter rivals. One, James Kirk, is a delinquent, thrill-seeking Iowa farm boy. The other, Spock, was raised in a logic-based society that rejects all emotion. Their unlikely partnership is the only thing capable of leading their crew through unimaginable danger, boldly going where no one has gone before.

Film Friday - The Wizard of Oz

Friday, June 27, 2014 6:00 PM

The Wizard of Oz (1939) Rated G, 102 minutes. Most of us know that one of the all-time classic films in American culture, The Wizard of Oz, was based on the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum. But did you know that there were no fewer than three adaptations of that story before the Judy Garland classic? Now you do.  And don’t forget about the recent incarnations including the 1978 musical with Diana Ross and Michael Jackson, The Wiz, and the hit Broadway adaptation Wicked
