A KNIGHT’S TALE
Brian Helgeland | USA | 2001 | 132 MIN
July 6 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater
A Knight’s Tale is a rollicking good time full of 70s jams, epic jousting matches, and Heath Ledger at his dreamiest.
History books tell us that in the 14th Century, an uncommonly studly commoner named Will impersonated a man of noble birth in order to compete in the honorable and very lucrative sport of jousting. Aided by a ragtag group of friends including renowned author Geoffrey “Jeff” Chaucer, Will triumphed over his opponents as his fans rhythmically stomped and clapped along to Queen’s “We Will Rock You.” With his charm and wispy, golden locks, Will also caught the eye of Jocelyn, a foxy noblewoman who liked to dress like she was on her way to a medieval rave. Will won tournament after tournament and wooed his love with romantic letters and funky court dancing, but it was only a matter of time before his humble background caught up with him. Also, his blacksmith founded Nike. These are the facts, which A Knight’s Tale brings to life in stirring, period-accurate detail.
Emile Ardolino | USA | 1992 | 100 MIN
August 3 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater
Sister Act is a feel-good classic filled with hysterical one-liners, rousing musical numbers, and lots of nunny business. It’s sure to inspire mass enjoyment!
What’s black, white, and chock-full of devotional reinterpretations of girl group favorites? Sister Act of course! Deloris Van-Cartier (Whoopi Goldberg) is a Reno lounge singer who’s forced to enter a convent after witnessing a mob hit. Though initially nun too happy at run-down St. Katherine’s Parish, Deloris soon finds her true calling with the convent’s choir, crafting zippy new arrangements and energizing her fellow sisters with the power of sweet, sweet music. Before you can say “uplifting musical montage,” the rejuvenated choir is filling the pews and attracting attention from parties both positive (Pope John Paul II) and negative (her murderous ex-boyfriend). Full of hysterical one-liners and rousing music, this habit-forming classic also features a delightful turn from national treasure Kathy Najimy and a master class in lip pursing from Dame Maggie Smith.
Wes Anderson | USA | 1998 | 93 MIN
September 7 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater
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.

Kenny Ortega | USA | 1993 | 96 MIN
October 5 | 7:30 PM | Prince Theater
Children of the 90s know that it’s not Halloween without this spooky, kooky classic about three witch sisters (Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker) who return to the town of Salem after 300 years looking to suck out the souls of children, wreak havoc, and perform choreographed song-and-dance numbers.
