Join usat 2PM, before “Jaws,” for a special screening of “The Shark is Still Working,” a documentary about the enduring legacy and impact of this movie classic. The doc’s producer James-Michael Roddy will be here to introduce the film and for a Q&A afterwards. This screening is FREE with your purchase of a ticket to see “Jaws!” There are very few films in the history of cinema that can be considered perfect. “Jaws” is, without a doubt, one of them. Plagued with production problems of all sorts “Jaws” emerged as the first summer blockbuster and changed movies forever. This is a true classic of the silver screen and one of the most quotable movies of all time. Get to the theater early because there is a good chance “we’re going to need a bigger boat.” (Bob Trate)
Directed by Rick Sloane. 1988. R. 92 min. DVD.

Colonial MSTies, this June we invite you to witness a B-Movie so bad that its own director (Rick Sloan) submitted it to the writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000. In this episode of our favorite show, Mike and the Bots attempt to stomach this gourmet cheese plate deluxe. Hobgoblins embodies the wanton corny decadence of the 80’s so succinctly that our space bound companions end up mocking not just a movie, but an entire decade. Join the Colonial Crew for another trip up to the Satellite of Love! (Chuck Francisco)
Directed by Richard Robbins. US. 2013. PG-13. 101 min. Gathr Films. blu ray. Buy tickets online.

“Inspiring,” “gorgeous,” “eye opening.” These are the words used by those who have seen Girl Rising! in which nine spirited girls from nine different countries push past incredible odds to achieve their goals. Their remarkable lives are captured in this unforgettable film about the strength of the human spirit and the power of education to change the world. Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Liam Neeson, Kerry Washington, Cate Blanchett, Priyanka Chopra, Salma Hayek, Chloë Grace Moretz, Selena Gomez, Freida Pinto and Alicia Keys narrate the stories, but the real stars are the girls themselves who vow to get an education. In experiencing the richness of each story, we discover how a single girl with drive and determination can become the catalyst for positive change.
