***Karen Black Double Feature*** COME BACK TO THE 5 & DIME JIMMY DEAN, JIMMY DEAN: Description: **Fully restored after 30 years and finally being screened in San Diego after decades of unavailability!** After directing a celebrated New York stage production of Come Back to the 5 & Dime Jimmy Dean, Jimmy Dean, legendary filmmaker Robert Altman (Nashville, 3 Women) gave the play the full cinematic treatment. Actresses Sandy Dennis, Golden Globe-nominee Cher, Karen Black, and Kathy Bates all reprised their stage roles, and the results are a magical convergence of theatre and film. A group of James Dean devotees reconvene at their teenage hangout, a rural Texas drugstore, twenty years after the death of their beloved idol. But much has changed in the intervening years, and the reunion provides them one final opportunity to expose the secrets and heal the emotional wounds that have lingered among them for two decades. Running Time: 109 minutes, Rating: PG. Trailer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d9pd7tnEdEA WITH: 40TH ANNIVERSARY! Description: One of the best disaster cult films ever! Chucky Heston heads the all-star cast as Alan Murdock, the former test pilot who must keep a disabled 747 from crashing in flames. The crisis begins when a businessman (Dana Andrews), flying his small private plane, suffers a fatal heart attack and the plane smashes into the cockpit of the 747. Following Murdock's radioed instructions, stewardess Nancy Pryor (Karen Black – playing it totally straight!) takes over the controls. The special-guest passenger lineup includes a Golden Globe nominated Helen Reddy as a singing nun (a character wickedly satirized in the 1980 parody Airplane!), Linda Blair as a teen needing a transplant, Myrna Loy slumming as an alcoholic, George Kennedy chewing scenery, Sid Caesar as a garrulous passenger – and the best for last: Miss Gloria Swanson as HERSELF! Airport '75 was a huge box office hit and actually spawned two more sequels and the franchise continued with Airport '77 and Airport '79. Time: 107 minutes, Rating: PG.
