Movies on the Big Screen as They Were Meant To Be Seen.
ROAD TO MOROCCO
Dir: David Butler
This third in the series of ROAD pictures finds Bob Hope and Bing Crosby as a pair of stowaways stranded in North Africa who fall under the amorous eyes of Princess Shalmar (Dorothy Lamour) and invoke the ire of an Arabian sheik (Anthony Quinn). Named in 1996 to the National Film Registry, this amiable comedy earned Oscar nominations for its sound and original screenplay and features one of the most memorable songs of the series in the Johnny Burke-Jimmy Van Heusen title number.
Dir: Tim Burton, Mike Johnson
Inspired by a Jewish folktale, this gothic animated fantasy stars Johnny Depp as Victor Van Dort, a shy young man engaged to Victoria Everglot (Emily Watson). After flubbing his lines at the wedding rehearsal, he goes to the forest to practice them - and accidentally marries a woman buried there (Helena Bonham Carter). Tim Burton’s third stop-motion feature and first as a director also features the voices of Tracey Ullman, Albert Finney and Christopher Lee, and the music of Danny Elfman (who plays Bonejangles in the film).

This stop-motion animated salute to the 1931 classic FRANKENSTEIN is based on a live-action short that director Tim Burton made while working at Disney in the 1980s. When his dog Sparky is hit by a car, young Victor Frankenstein (Charlie Tahan) puts his science lessons to work, reanimating the deceased pet - the first of many creatures unleashed when the boy’s classmates copy his work. With Catherine O’Hara, Martin Short, Martin Landau and Winona Ryder. An Oscar nominee for Best Animated Feature.
