Cult Classics At Bobby Stone Film Series This Weekend

Thursday, August 15, 2019

This weekend features cult classics at the Bobby Stone Film Series at the Tivoli Theatre.

The Apartment, presented by West Village, will have a free screening Saturday at 7 p.m .

Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray star in the 1960 comedic classic The Apartment, where a man tries to rise in his company by letting its executives use his apartment for trysts, but complications and a romance of his own ensue.

Do The Right Thing, presented by the West Village, has screenings at 2 and 6 p.m. 

Smart, vibrant, and urgent without being didactic, Do the Right Thing is one of Spike Lee's most fully realized efforts -- and one of the most important films of the '80s. Don't miss Chattanooga's own Samuel L. Jackson, Spike Lee, Danny Aiello, John Turturro, Rosie Perez, and more in their amazing performances.
