The Wednesday, October 18th program is a 7:30 PM screening of SOULER OPPOSITE (1998, Souler Opposite Productions Inc., 104 min.). Opposites attrract, repel and collide like bumper cars in a savvy "romantic mockery" from writer/director Bill Kalmenson. Christopher Meloni ("Law and Order SVU") plays Barry, a stand up comedian whose love life is a joke. Janel Moloney ("The West Wing") stars as, Thea, the political activist drawn to Barry and then distanced by him and Timothy Busfield ("Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip") as the pal who helps keep Barry on an uneven keel. Kalmenson's grandfather, Ben Kalmenson, had started his career as a seller of Warner movies in 1927 and retired as president of the studio in 1969.

Sunday, October 22, 2006: Aero Theatre

The Sunday, October 22nd program is a 7:30 PM screening of a 70 MM print of TITANIC (1997, Paramount, 194 min.), directed by James Cameron. "I thought I wanted to be the next Jacques Cousteau," Cameron once remarked - here, he goes one better by resurrecting the doomed R.M.S. Titanic as a shimmering spectacle of polished brass and lost love. First the most-expensive (and later the most-successful) movie in Hollywood history, TITANIC was in reality a labor of love and craft for Cameron and crew - from cinematographer Russell Carpenter’s luminous ocean images to production designer Peter Lamont’s meticulous reconstructions of the Titanic interiors. TITANIC swept the Oscars, winning 11 out of 14 nominations. With Leonardo Di Caprio and Kate Winslet as two people traveling in separate classes shipboard, who meet and romance briefly before the fateful night when the ship hits an iceberg and sank. Introduction by actress Gloria Stuart.
