Experts consider the 1960s as the decade in which Hollywood produced some of the most interesting, and artistically valuable films of all times. It was the last decade before “blockbusters” took center stage. And for a lot of us, it was a time when we were young, movie-going was our primary form of entertainment, and the iconic movies of that time stayed with us long after the credits rolled. Regardless of whether specific movies of the ‘60s stand out for you because of their true excellence or because they evoke memories of earlier years, many of those films have firmly stood the test of time. We tried to select a series that would ultimately highlight the range of movie storytelling during that decade as well as still have a germane message for today.

In addition, Dr. Jon Cavallero, Associate Professor and Chair of Rhetoric, Film, and Screen Studies, Bates College, worked with us on selecting this year’s films and, more importantly, will be joining us again this year with pre-film video or in-person commentaries. On the occasions when Jon is with us, he will stay for a Q&A session. And even though we will not be looking for Alfred Hitchcock’s cameos, we will again provide trivia fun-fact sheets. Finally, we have added an additional showing on Saturday afternoon for those who work or prefer a weekend matinee.

All shows are at 2:00 p.m. Tickets are $10 Adults; $8 Members.

This is Benjamin. He’s a little worried about his future.

Benjamin Braddock (Dustin Hoffman) returns home to California after successfully completing college. He gets a hero's welcome from his parents but Ben isn't quite sure what to do with the rest of his life. He is soon seduced by Mrs. Robinson (Anne Bancroft), the wife of his father's partner, who methodically pursues the inexperienced young man. Soon, they are meeting regularly in hotel rooms. Warned by Mrs. Robinson to stay away from her daughter Elaine (Katharine Ross), Benjamin’s father goads him into taking her out on a date. He finds he quite likes Elaine but when she learns he's been having an affair with her own mother, she'll have nothing to do with him. He's smitten however and pursues her.
"Feels as sly, modern and bracing as it must have in 1967."
