The Orpheum in Memphis has announced the films for its Summer Movie Series.

The Orpheum is turning 80 this year, so they’re really going all-out for this year’s films.

Here are the classic films they’re showing:

June 7 – “Titanic”
June 13 – “E.T.”

And here are the “Chick Flicks” they’re showing…
June 12 – “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”
July 3 – “The First Wives Club”
July 10 – “Pretty Woman”
July 17 – “Steel Magnolias”
July 24 – “To Catch a Thief”
July 31 – “Sleepless in Seattle”
Aug. 7 – “Terms of Endearment”

Movies start at 7:15 p.m.
Prices are $5/adults and $4/12 and under.

Last year I went to see “Casablanca” there, and it was one of the best movie-going experiences I’ve ever had. It was like seeing the movie for the first time.
Lots of folks dressed up like Rick or Ilsa, and they had a trivia contest before the movie started and gave away prizes.

Seeing classic films in a gorgeous old theater for $5? I’m so there…who’s with me for “Gone with the Wind”?
