For our first official movie line-up we have selected a range of films from current Academy award nominees, dramas to classic comedies.

ANIMAL HOUSE:  When Dean Wormer decides that Faber College is no place for the unsophisticated antics of the Deltas, he enlists the services of the militant like Omegas to drum up violations that would expel the Deltas for good. The stage is set for a comical showdown, which ends up with some of the most memorable comedic moments in movie history. Directed by John Landis and starring John Belushi, Tom Hulce and John Vernon as Dean Wormer, ANIMAL HOUSE is a classic crowd pleaser.

FLIGHT: Denzel Washington gives another first-class performance as "Whip," a commercial airline pilot who saves the lives of 98 people when he flies and lands a damaged plane. Afterwards he finds it hard to come to grips with being labeled an American hero and must come to terms with his personal demons. Directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring John Goodman, Don Cheadle and Melissa Leo alongside Washington, FLIGHT is a well crafted drama and one of Denzel Washington’s finest performances.

GHOSTBUSTERS: The most universally adored goofball team of Specter-destroyers: Murray, Aykroyd, Ramis and the vastly under-appreciated Hudson collectively defined everything we enjoy in ‘80s cinema. Unleashing a supernatural adventure that busts funny bones as well as ghosts, the four Ghostbusters and their converted ambulance made an entire decade safe for hilarity, action, and trans dimensional demon combat. But you knew that already, as this timeless classic is burned into our minds eternally. See it on the big screen via a gorgeous new digital restoration.

SKYFALL: James Bond returns under the guidance of Sam Mendes (AMERICAN BEAUTY, ROAD TO PERDITION) in the latest M16 adventure. M (Judi Dench) has a past and it's intruding on her present as Bond's (Daniel Craig) allegiance to his long-time superior is strained. We also meet a new Q in this installment, played by upstart Ben Whishaw (CLOUD ATLAS). Our new villain? Javier Bardem. Our new Bond girls? Berenice Marlohe and Noamie Harris. Yeah, SKYFALL's not messing around.

BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD:  As a storm descends upon a southern delta community known as the Bathtub, Hushpuppy, played Quvenzhane’ Wallis and her Father, played by Dwight Henry, choose to stay on their tiny island as flood waters rise.  For her role in the film, Wallis, was the youngest actress to ever be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress. Through an imaginative and fairytale like narrative that could only be told through the eyes of a child, she delivers a stunning performance as her character copes with the harsh realities of poverty and natural disaster. BEASTS OF THE SOUTHERN WILD is a unique cinematic experience.

LINCOLN: Focuses on the 16th President’s final three months in office as he navigates the difficult course of ending a war, unifying a nation and abolishing slavery. Successfully guiding our nation through those difficult times is why Lincoln is considered one of the greatest presidents in history. Steven Spielberg crafts an intense drama and Daniel Day Lewis performs remarkably to recreate one of the most important times in U.S. history.

ZERO DARK THIRTY: After 9/11, the U.S. conducted the most aggressive manhunt in history to find Osama Bin Laden.  Director Katherine Bigelow and writer Mark Boal (THE HURT LOCKER) tackle this story with what appears to be unprecedented access to some of the CIA’s most hidden practices.  Whether the film is an accurate depiction or loosely based adaptation of one of the most incredible stories of our time, ZERO DARK THIRTY is a masterpiece.
