Superman: The Movie highly rated by IMDB 7.3 out of 10! SPECIAL EARLY START TIME!

Superman can't save his adopted dad from a heart attack, however, and is shown mourning his death. There is some smoking in the Daily Planet newsroom typical of the '70s and a few swear words.

GREAT RIDES FILM FESTIVAL: BUSTER KEATONíS THE GENERAL†
New York, 8:30 -10 p.m.
(USA, 1926, 78 min) One of the great comedies of the silent era, The General stars Buster Keaton as a Southern engineer during the Civil War who has two great loves in his life: his fiancée Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack) and his train engine, The General. When Annabelle is accidentally taken away on a train stolen by Northern forces, Keaton follows in pursuit to retrieve both Annabelle and the General. In the process Keaton overcomes a chain of obstacles with breathtaking ingenuity showcasing his impeccable comic and acrobatic timing. “Keaton's authenticity and comedic understatement make The General a surprisingly modern experience. The storytelling and the gags are free of sentimentality and knockabout clichés.” – Gary Giddens, Slate.com Free admission PS21 – The Tent at PS21: 2980 Route 66, one mile north of Chatham Village http://ps21chatham.org/2015-programs/film/film-festival-great-rides/

GREAT RIDES FILM FESTIVAL: LA BÍTE HUMAINE
New York, 8:30 - 10:15 p.m.
(France, 1938, 100 min) Based on the classic Emile Zola novel, Jean Renoir’s La Bête Humaine was one of the legendary director’s greatest popular successes—and earned star Jean Gabin a permanent place in the hearts of his countrymen. Part poetic realism, part film noir, the film is a hard-boiled and suspenseful journey into the tormented psyche of a workingman. “The opening minutes of La bête humaine are a bracing plunge into the materiality of the world. ... Forty years after the invention of movies, Jean Renoir managed to re-create the astonishment that greeted the 1898 Lumière movie of a train arriving in a station. La Bête Humaine …begins on a note of heroic exhilaration, in which the natural world and the power of technology are wedded through the closely coordinated labor—effected through glances and sign language—of two men.” – Geoffrey O’Brien (2006)  Free admission PS21 – The Tent at PS21: 2980 Route 66, one mile north of Chatham Village http://ps21chatham.org/2015-programs/film/film-festival-great-rides/
