Level 1 Fresh City Lounge

Directed by Arthur Hiller. Starring Shelley Long, Bette Midler.
One of the funniest female buddy movies ever made. The oddball pairing of Shelley Long and Bette Midler turned into box office gold; their chemistry is undeniable – whether they are fighting over a man or trying to save the United States from an environmental terrorist. 100 minutes. Rated R.

See Ingrid Bergman at her most luminous in this tale of a woman being driven mad by her husband’s duplicitous behavior and a secret “which he will do anything to protect, even if that means driving his wife insane.” – imdb.com. Angela Lansbury got her big break in this film playing the blowsy downstairs maid! 114 minutes. Unrated.

B2 Conference Center

Directed by Roy Ward Baker. Starring Marilyn Monroe, Richard Widmark, Anne Bancroft.
Marilyn Monroe is often summed up with her measurements, her breathy voice and swivel hips. She always had more to offer, for those who could see past her more obvious attributes – and she works out all her actress muscles in this film from relatively early in her short career. Richard Widmark and Anne Bancroft play off each other beautifully, but the screen belongs to Marilyn as the hotel babysitter who’s losing touch with reality. 76 minutes. Unrated.

Directed by Jean Negulesco. Starring Joan Crawford, John Garfield.
During the filming of Humoresque, Joan Crawford won her first Academy Award for her performance in Mildred Pierce. Many film critics and aficionados claim that you can see the power of winning the Oscar in Crawford’s performance in Humoresque. She plays a boozy, neurotic socialite who falls for a musical prodigy from the wrong side of the tracks. Oh, and she’s married to someone else, too. No Hollywood ending here…but the last scene is iconic. 125 minutes. Unrated.
