COMPLETE SCHEDULE (from the BPC website)

July 10
Stand By Me
Is there any change more universally terrifying than puberty? Throw a dead body into the mix and see if you cope as well as Wil Wheaton, River Phoenix, Corey Feldman and Jerry O’Connell in this ‘80s favorite. Also starring Kiefer Sutherland.

July 17
Invasion of the Body Snatchers
Some people say that true change comes from within. This 1956 cult classic proves once and for all that it comes from outer space. Helpless automatons need not bother.

July 24
Wallace and Gromit: Curse Of The Were Rabbit
The annual Giant Vegetable Competition is days away and Wallace & Gromit’s humane pest control service, “Anti-Pesto,” is doing big business. But who exactly is changing into the mysterious Were-Rabbit, trashing and eating all the prized veggies? Find out in this 2005 Academy Award winner for Best Animated Feature.

July 31
Ace In The Hole
Billy Wilder’s cynical classic envisions a world where tragedy makes for media gold and once-respected journalists change into self-serving desperados…a full half-century before blogging and TMZ. Kirk Douglas stars in this New Mexican noir.

August 7
Back to the past imperfect. Pre-superstardom Tobey Maguire and Reese Witherspoon time travel to a black-and-white ‘50s sitcom world, and the times, they end up a-changin’. With William H. Macy and Joan Allen.

August 14
“What good is sitting alone in your room? Come hear the music play….” Winner of 8 Oscars, Bob Fosse’s masterpiece immerses the viewer in the demimonde of Berlin’s Kit Kat Klub as Germany changes from “divine decadence” to Hitlerism. Liza Minnelli, Michael York and Joel Grey star in this dark yet entertaining musical.
August 21
Being There
Peter Sellers shines in Hal Ashby’s 1979 cult classic about an illiterate gardener who inadvertently becomes advisor to Washington’s elite, changing the world while remaining his simpleton self. Also starring Shirley MacLaine and Melvyn Douglas in an Oscar-winning performance.

August 28
The Shining
Ah, the transformative power of new digs. Jack Nicolson loses his mind after moving his family into an isolated, haunted hotel in Stanley Kubrick’s chilling adaptation of Stephen King’s best-seller. Careful, don’t spill any red rum.
