June will be a rare month for Friends of the Loew’s, the group behind the monthly revival film screening series going on over at the Loew’s Jersey. It’s rare because this June the group will host two weekends of classic movies, instead of the usual one. Things start off this weekend, with screenings of classic comedies, including Mel Brooks’s The Producers (1968), along with the black and white films My Man Godfrey (1936), starring William Powell & Carole Lombard, and Howard Hawks’s Bringing Up Baby (1938), starring Katharine Hepburn & Cary Grant. Then, on the weekend of June 8th, they’ll follow up the comedies with a series of cult classic fantasy films, including Ishiro Honda’s Japanese monster movie Mothra (1961), Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (1971) starring Gene Wilder, and Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (2001) directed by Chris Columbus (okay, so maybe this one’s not so classic, yet).
The Loew’s Jersey is located at 54 Journal Square in Jersey City, New Jersey.
