Friday, January 24th
All the President’s Men (1976)
The story of Nixon’s right-hand men and how they attempted to cover up the Watergate scandal. Alan J. Pakula makes it a history lesson but Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford make it a political thriller even though we’re all well aware of the outcome. The film will end the month-long series The Way He Was: Early Redford.
Top Gun (1986)
Break out your old leather bomber jacket and aviators because Top Gun is in the repertory lineup this weekend. It's the 80's movie that defined 80's movies - adventure, love, and one heck of a soundtrack.

Museum of the Moving Image
If the NBC special back in December didn’t do it for you, Museum of the Moving Image has a special screening this Saturday as part of the series, See it Big! Musicals.
The Breakfast Club (1985)
12:00 pm (same time Sunday)
See the repertory that originally started Nitehawk’s Boozy Brunch weekends. The Princess, the Jock, the Rebel, the Nerd, and the Kook – stuck together for an entire day of Saturday detention imposed upon them by their joke of a principal, Richard Vernon. The opposites bond over shared struggles, pot, and their collective hate of high school. It's the movie you know and love and could watch over and over again so go! Just go.
