Al Capone meets Eliot Ness in “The Untouchables” at the Cerrito on Thursday, April 11, at 7:00.

In the “roaring twenties,” Al Capone ruled an empire of crime in the Windy City: gambling, prostitution, bootlegging, bribery, narcotics trafficking, robbery, and “protection” rackets. But after the Saint Valentine’s Day Massacre, the public reacted with outrage. An infamous poster went up everywhere, emblazoned with a large photo, labeling Capone (identified on the poster as “Alphonse Gabriel Capone) “Public Enemy No. 1,” signed by J. Edgar Hoover, Director of the FBI.

In a dazzling array of talent, “The Untouchables” brings to life the 1930 showdown between the top crime boss and the top law enforcers in the country. Playing Capone was none other than Robert DeNiro. Prohibition agent Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) drove the showdown, perhaps overshadowed by a tough cop, Jimmy Malone—played by Sean Connery, who won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for the role. The director was Brian DePalma, with the screenplay by David Mamet.

The movie draws you into the action by capturing many of the distinctive Chicago settings of the era.

Vincent Canby of the New York Times called the movie “vulgar, violent, funny and sometimes breathtakingly beautiful.”

Enjoy some laughs with “Office Space” at the Cerrito on Thursday, March 14, at 7:00.

In a stroke of genius, writer-director Mike Judge (better known as the creator of “Beavis and Butthead”, “King of the Hill,” and “Silicon Valley”) created a hilarious satire of the corporate world—which resonates with anyone who has held a soul-crushing job.

Peter Gibbons (played by Ron Livingston) is a cubicle slave, imprisoned at a soulless software company, Initech, where the workers are either automatons or emotionally dysfunctional, including one who is stapler-obsessed. They’re presided over by an unctuous phony, played by Gary Cole, a symbol of everything that’s wrong with the corporate world.

Jennifer Aniston humorously plays a woman with whom Peter gets involved—who has a similarly soul-crushing job at the nearby chain restaurant.

Through a bizarre twist of fate, Peter undergoes a personality shift, leading to a revenge plot with his two work buddies.

Watch what happens!

“Pretty in Pink” (1986) at the Cerrito on Thursday, February 14, at 7:00.

Retro-80s Valentine’s Event: “Pretty in Pink” at the Cerrito on Thursday, February 14 at 7:00

John Hughes defined teen films in the 1980s: from the fun-loving hijinks of “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” (1986), to the angsty misfits turned unlikely-community in “The Breakfast Club” (1985), to the awkward and endearing teen rom-com of “Pretty in Pink” (1986).

Molly Ringwald (also of “The Breakfast Club” and “Sixteen Candles”) stars as Andie, the misfit, artsy, intelligent girl from the “wrong side of the tracks,” who develops a very unlikely romantic relationship with the upper-class Blane, played by Andrew McCarthy. As their budding relationship develops, these two must navigate not just the inevitable issues class and economic divide and of typical teen angst, but also the influences of their dubious friends: most notably Blane’s closest friend Steff (James Spader), and Annie’s love-struck, and eternally endearing, childhood friend Duckie (Jon Cryer).

This film also gives us other great in-depth characters with Harry Dean Stanton portraying Annie’s out-of-work father, and Annie Potts as the youthful, punky record store owner.

The movie scores very high on Rolling Stone’s list of “Greatest Soundtracks of All Time,” including tracks by The Smiths, INXS, and Otis Redding with “Try A Little Tenderness.”

“Pretty in Pink” strikes a human chord across all age groups—and does it enjoyably.
