THE 10-MINUTE RULE
Seats for advance ticket and pass holders are held until 10 minutes before showtime, when any unfilled seats are released to the public. Thus, advance tickets or passes ensure that you will not have to wait in the ticket purchase line but do not guarantee a seat in the case of arrival after the 10-minute window has begun. Your early arrival also helps get screenings started promptly. We appreciate your understanding. Advance ticket holders who arrive within the 10-minute window but are not seated may exchange their tickets for another screening at the Ticket Outlet or obtain a cash refund at the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for late arrivals or for missed screenings.

MEAN STREETS
DIRECTOR: MARTIN SCORSESE
US, 1973

Based in part on his own experiences in the darker corners of New York’s Little Italy, Scorsese provides a parable of a man attempting to reconcile his violent lifestyle with an irresolute Catholic faith. Harvey Keitel portrays Charlie, a well-meaning, small-time hood whose conflicted nature is slowly beginning to jeopardize his work and private life. Robert De Niro turns in a startling performance as Johnny Boy, Charlie’s arguably psychopathic friend, whose quick temper and unpaid debts quickly become menacing liabilities. (112 mins.)

DIRTY DANCING
DIRECTOR: EMILE ARDOLINO
US, 1987

Less than thrilled by the prospect of another boring summer at a posh Catskill resort with her family, 17-year-old Frances “Baby” Houseman (Jennifer Grey) has the unexpected time of her life when she falls into the arms of resident dance instructor Johnny Castle (Patrick Swayze). Though he’s from the wrong side of the tracks, he’s got a lot to teach Baby before she heads off to college in the fall. (100 mins.)

ENTER THE DRAGON
DIRECTOR: ROBERT CLOUSE
US/HONG KONG, 1973

Bruce Lee (in his last role) plays Shaolin master Mr. Lee, who is recruited to infiltrate the island of sinister crime lord Mr. Han by going undercover as a competitor in Han’s kung fu tournament. The Bond-style premise gives Lee ample opportunity to showcase his incredible, almost balletic Wing Chun chops—especially in the now-legendary climactic fight in a hall of mirrors. “The Fred Astaire of martial arts.”—Pauline Kael. (102 mins.)
