Stars, Stripes and Celluloid: Films for the 4th of July Weekend


More 4th of July Screenings at the Egyptian!


In the midst of a true-blue weekend known for fireworks and picnics, it’s always fun to catch a terrific flick with friends and family around the 4th of July. Please join us at the Egyptian and Aero theaters this 4th of July weekend for films that will delight and thrill, including ROCKY, JAWS, THE SHINING, 1776, Abbott and Costello’s WHO DONE IT and PARDON MY SARONG, a PINK PANTHER double feature and a special triple feature of THE MATRIX trilogy.




Thursday, July 1 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: WHO DONE IT?, 1942, Universal, 75 min. Dir. Erle C. Kenton. In Abbott & Costello’s first film without musical numbers, they play soda jerks pretending to be detectives in order to solve a murder. The supporting cast is unbeatable: William Bendix, Patrick Knowles, Mary Wickes, Don Porter, Louise Albritton, Thomas Gomez, William Gargan, Jerome Cowan and Ludwig Stossel.

PARDON MY SARONG, 1942, Universal, 84 min. Dir. Erle C. Kenton. In one of their most lavish vehicles, Abbott & Costello are bus drivers helping Honolulu playboy Robert Paige win a big yacht race - until they’re blown off course to an island lorded over by an evil scientist (Lionel Atwill).

Friday, July 2 – 7:30 PM

Double Feature: THE PINK PANTHER, 1964, MGM Repertory, 113 min. Writer-director Blake Edwards introduced Peter Sellers’ absolutely clueless Inspector Jacques Clouseau with this comedy about a British jewel thief and playboy (David Niven) on a ski holiday with nephew Robert Wagner, mistress Capucine, exotic princess Claudia Cardinale and a priceless diamond in tow. Trailer

A SHOT IN THE DARK, 1964, MGM Repertory, 101 min. Blake Edwards’ follow-up to THE PINK PANTHER is a non-stop barrage of pratfalls, sight gags and linguistic nonsense. Everything seems freshly minted, from Herbert Lom’s hysterics as Chief Inspector Dreyfus to Burt Kwouk’s first appearance as Cato. Trailer

Saturday, July 3 – 7:30 PM

1776, 1972, Sony Repertory, 169 min. Director Peter H. Hunt’s inspired adaptation of the 1969 Broadway musical smash. John Adams (William Daniels), Benjamin Franklin (Howard Da Silva) and Thomas Jefferson (Ken Howard) try to woo the rest of the colonies toward independence from England. We’re thrilled to be screening a beautifully restored print of the complete, uncut version of the film! Trailer Buy Tickets
