Al Pacino will be at his gangster best in two upcoming films featured at Camana Bay Cinema.
On Aug. 14, Classics at the Cinema will screen “The Godfather,” starring Marlon Brando as Vito Corleone and Pacino as his son Michael. “The Godfather” not only won the Academy Award for Best Picture in 1972, but is also widely considered one of the best movies of all time.
Thirty-five years after Tony Montana invited moviegoers to say hello to his little friend, the Camana Bay Cinema will feature 1983’s “Scarface” as its Classics at the Cinema feature on Sept. 4. Pacino stars as a Cuban refugee in the United States who turns to a life of organised crime.
For those looking for a little music in their Classics, the 1955 film version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical “Oklahoma!” will be shown on Aug. 21. The following Tuesday, Aug. 28, there will be mayhem off the shores of Amity Island, causing Robert Shaw, Roy Scheider and Richard Dreyfuss to go shark hunting in “Jaws.” This 1975 Steven Spielberg film was considered the first summer “blockbuster” movie.
Jaws won’t be the only creature terrorising the big screen seas this month. On Aug. 10, “The Meg” opens, telling the tale of a group of scientists, led by Jason Statham, who have to stop a 75-foot Megalodon shark, which has somehow survived from prehistoric times.
Aug. 17 will see the opening of “Mile 22,” the action thriller starring Mark Wahlberg, John Malkovich and Lauren Cohan. The movie tells the story of an American intelligence officer who is trying to transport a police officer to a foreign country because he holds sensitive information.
For the Kids
There have been many movies created for the DC Universe characters, but Aug. 3 sees the Teen Titans get their first taste of a feature film in “Teen Titans Go! To The Movies.” The animated film is about the Teen Titans asking for a movie from the director and getting rejected, until danger comes upon the entire Justice League and only the Teen Titans can save them.
The Saturday morning Kids Clubs films this month are “Flushed Away” on Aug. 4; “Annie” (1982) on Aug. 11; “Peter Pan” on Aug. 18; and “Despicable Me 2” on Aug. 25.
