Steven Spielberg followed Jaws (1975), his first major box-office success, with this epic science fiction adventure about a disparate group of people who attempt to contact alien intelligence. Roy Neary (Richard Dreyfuss) is an electrical lineman who, while sent out on emergency repairs, witnesses an unidentified flying object, and even has a “sunburn” from its bright lights to prove it. Neary’s wife and children are at first skeptical, then concerned, and eventually fearful, as Roy refuses to accept a “logical” explanation for what he saw and is prepared to give up his job, his home, and his family to pursue the “truth” about UFOs. Neary’s obsession eventually puts him in contact with others who’ve had close encounters with alien spacecraft, including Jillian (Melinda Dillon), a single mother whose son disappeared during her UFO experience, and Claude Lacombe (celebrated French filmmaker Franois Truffaut), a French researcher who believes that we can use a musical language to communicate with alien visitors. Lacombe’s theory is put to the test when a band of government researchers and underground UFO enthusiasts (including Neary) join for an exchange with alien visitors near Devil’s Tower, Wyoming.

“Meet Me in St. Louis” (1944) on Thursday, March 13, 7pm

The incomparable Judy Garland was at the top of her form in “Meet Me in St. Louis” (1944), just four years after the triumph of “The Wizard of Oz.”

In “Meet Me in St. Louis,” Vincente Minnelli, soon to be Garland’s husband, captured a vivid portrait of the innocence of American life just after the turn of the century.

Taking place over the course of a year in St. Louis, the story shows Garland, along with her brother and three sisters, in the time leading up to the big 1904 St. Louis World’s Fair.

The surfaces are glistening and nostalgic, but there is an undercurrent of change going on in the country as well as within the family. The father has announced that he is accepting a promotion to New York City, and the teenage children find this a big disruption to their romantic stirrings.

The big screen sparkles with Technicolor and Garland delivers with songs such as “The Trolley Song” and “The Boy Next Door.” Marjorie Main is reliably comical as the family maid, and Margaret O’Brien excels as the impish little sister.
