Every Wednesday MatineeAdult Events 01/22/2020, 2:00 PM - 4:00 PM Main Library – Auditorium
On Wednesdays at 2 pm, Montclair Public Library hosts The Every Wednesday Matinee, a film series presented in its auditorium. In January 2020 we will be watching Paul Newman movies in honor of his birthday (January 26, 1925). The movies are as follows:
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (January 8) – Starring: Elizabeth Taylor, Paul Newman, Burl Ives, Judith Anderson. Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play of the same name by Tennessee Williams. After Brick Pollitt injures himself while drunkenly revisiting his high school sports-star days, he and his tempestuous wife, Maggie, visit his family’s Mississippi plantation for the 65th birthday of his hot-tempered father, Big Daddy. Cantankerous even with declining health, Big Daddy demands to know why Brick and Maggie haven’t yet given him a grandchild, unlike Brick’s brother Gooper and his fecund wife, Mae. (1958, 108 min, Color).
Cool Hand Luke (January 15) – Starring: Paul Newman, George Kennedy, J.D. Cannon, Robert Drivas, Lou Antonio, Strother Martin, Jo Van Fleet. When petty criminal Luke Jackson is sentenced to two years in a Florida prison farm, he doesn’t play by the rules of either the sadistic warden or the yard’s resident heavy, Dragline, who ends up admiring the new guy’s unbreakable will. Luke’s bravado, even in the face of repeated stints in the prison’s dreaded solitary confinement cell, “the box,” make him a rebel hero to his fellow convicts and a thorn in the side of the prison officers. (1967, 126 minutes, Color)
The Life and Times of Judge Roy Bean (January 22) – Starring: Paul Newman, Jacqueline Bisset, Tab Hunter, John Huston, Stacy Keach, Roddy McDowell, Anthony Perkins, Victoria Principal, Anthony Zerbe, Ava Gardner. Saved from near death by a young Mexican girl, a former outlaw sets himself up as sole arbiter of the law in a small town. The town prospers as Judge Bean robs and hangs anyone with money that comes through it, but his haven becomes less secure when his Mexican companion dies and the townsfolk begin to turn against him. (1972, 124 minutes, Color)
The Sting (January 29) – Starring: Paul Newman, Robert Redford, Robert Shaw, Charles Durning, Robert Earl Jones. Following the murder of a mutual friend, aspiring con man Johnny Hooker teams up with old pro Henry Gondorff to take revenge on the ruthless crime boss responsible, Doyle Lonnegan (Robert Shaw). (1973, 130 minutes, Color)
