Movie suggestions

Thanks so much for providing ideas and suggestions for movies. Please know that there are many factors that need to be considered when programming movies (most significantly, the availability of the public rights, and the cost of those rights), so don't take it personally if your film doesn't get shown.

Things to remember:

Cinema La Placita shows CLASSIC AMERICAN FILMS. Sometimes British, but very, very seldom foreign. Subtitles can be very hard to see on the screen, I've found.

We are COMPLETELY dependant on donations and sponsorships to pay for this program. More popular movies bring in bigger crowds, and therefore more donations. But, they often cost more to show. Catch 22. Which, now that I think about it, we've never shown.

"Classic" is a flexible term, and can sometimes, but not often, include relatively recent films, such as Blazing Saddles and Tootsie. (However, notice that Blazing Saddles was released in 1974 and Tootsie in 1982. Hard to believe? Feel old?)

We try not to show movies that have been shown in the past four years (we've been showing movies for FIFTEEN YEARS! Hard to believe? Feel old?)

Subtitles are very, very difficult to read on the screen because of the ambient light in the plaza, so no subtitles.
