Wes Anderson | USA | 1998 | 93 MIN
September 7 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater Black Box
Wes Anderson’s critically acclaimed breakthrough is the quirky, touching, and hilarious tale of Max Fischer (Jason Schwartzman), an eccentric prep schooler who finds himself competing with his sad-sack mentor (Bill Murray) for the affections of the same woman. The film ushered in a new golden age for Murray, and marked the arrival of yet another talented member of the Coppola clan with Schwartzman, who manages to make bespectacled, precocious Max into one of cinema’s most lovable misfits. It’s also perhaps the perfect encapsulation of Wes Anderson’s delightfully twee sensibility, complete with arch dialogue, retro fashions, and a perfectly curated soundtrack of 60s pop gems.
Kenny Ortega | USA | 1993 | 96 MIN
October 5 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater Black Box
Children of the 90s know that it’s not Halloween without this spooky, kooky classic about three witch sisters (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, Sarah Jessica Parker) who return to the town of Salem after 300 years looking to wreak havoc and perform a choreographed song-and-dance number to “I Put a Spell on You.” Hocus Pocus follows teenager Max, who inadvertently resurrects the Sanderson sisters and must face zombies and annoying kid sisters on his quest to put a stop to the witches’ plan to suck out the souls of Salem’s children before Halloween night is up.
