Mary Poppins – Thursday, April 17
Directed by Robert Stevenson
The Banks children just can’t get along with the nannies hired by their overbearing banker father. Then the wind picks up in the east, someone knocks at the door, and all of their lives are changed forever. Fifty years ago, Mary Poppins floated off of the silver screen to become one of the most beloved movie musicals of all-time. Julie Andrews delivers a star-making title performance, alongside Dick Van Dyke as the lovable jack-of-all-trades, Bert. Courtesy of Walt Disney Pictures.

Splash – Friday, April 18
Directed by Ron Howard
Allen Bauer nearly drowns off the coast of Cape Cod. He wakes on the beach beside a beautiful woman, who all-too-quickly disappears into the ocean. But the real mystery begins days later when she reappears at the Statue of Liberty guarding an incredible secret, as Allen falls wholeheartedly in love. Celebrating its 30th birthday this year, Ron Howard’s rollicking New York comedy-caper stars Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah, Eugene Levy, and John Candy. Courtesy of Touchstone Pictures.
