“Funny Face” (1957) at the Cerrito on Thursday, January 11, at 7:00

Bring in the new year with Fred Astaire and Audrey Hepburn in “Funny Face” Thursday, January 11, at 7:00 at the Cerrito!

Fred Astaire as a blasé high-fashion photographer? Audrey Hepburn as an introverted bookstore clerk? It could happen! And lots more happens in this delightful confection of a romance.

It starts in Greenwich Village, where Astaire “discovers” Hepburn and sees a future for her as a fashion model. Then, they whisk off to Paris for an up-and-down adventure, which includes Gershwin songs, and dancing, and much more. Along the way, we’re treated to a bit of satire toward the high fashion world, and even Existentialism. All photographed with high style and imagination, directed by Stanley Donen, with four Oscar nominations.

What a way to start a new year!

“Funny Face” plays once only on Thursday, January 11 at 7:00 p.m.. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out.

Enjoy warm holiday spirit with “A Christmas Story,” Thursday, December 7, at 7:00 at the Cerrito!

Here’s a Christmastime scene: 9-year-old Ralphie has decided what he wants for Christmas — an official Red Ryder BB rifle. When he asks his mother for the BB gun for Christmas, she says, “No, you’ll shoot your eye out”. When he writes an essay about it at school his teacher gives him a C+ with a note saying “You’ll shoot your eye out.” When he visits a cantankerous Santa, Ralphie gets a similar response: “You’ll shoot your eye out, kid.” Ralphie fears that he’ll never get the BB gun for Christmas. But there may be a surprise in store for him. There’s also a stubborn furnace, a tasteless lamp, a yellow-eyed bully, a pack of unruly dogs, and more.

Yes, we’re in the 1940’s in a small town. The viewer learns the story both as it happens and as reflected upon from an adult’s viewpoint. A wry and funny viewpoint, but as fresh as though it just happened.

“A Christmas Story” is based on the book by Jean Shepherd entitled “In God We Trust, All Others Pay Cash.” It stars Peter Billingsley as Ralphie, Melinda Dillon as his mother, and Darren McGavin as his father. Jean Shepherd provides the narration. Bob Clark is the director.

“A Christmas Story” plays once only on Thursday, December 7 at 7:00 p.m. Please note that this is the first Thurday of the month, not the usual second Thursday. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out.

“Raising Arizona” (1987) at the Cerrito on Thursday, November 9, at 7:00

Catch some zaniness with “Raising Arizona,” on Thursday, November 9, at 7:00 at the Cerrito!

Why is “Raising Arizona” a cult classic? As Brian Welk, explains in SFGate:

Perhaps no Coen Brothers movie is ultimately as heartfelt as “Raising Arizona.” It’s the touching story of a family getting a second chance at life and learning to cope with the hand fate has dealt. Oh, and it’s also a hilarious movie about baby-napping. It’s a masterpiece.

Small-time convenience store robber H.I. McDonough, known as “Hi,” played by Nicolas Cage, and Edwina, a prison employee in charge of taking mug shots, played by Holly Hunter, make an unlikely couple, to say the least. But they are endearing.

“Raising Arizona” is a zany love story, of the two of them, and of their love for a baby. Many hilarious supporting characters and more twists and turns than you can keep track of.

“Raising Arizona” plays once only on Thursday, November 9, at 7:00 p.m. All seats are $9.00. Moviegoers are strongly advised to buy advance tickets at the box office or online, as many shows sell out. Arriving early is a good idea, in order to choose your seat and also order delicious food and wine or beer.
