FILM • “The Last Starfighter” (Universal, 1984) Trailer-park teenager Alex Rogan (Lance Guest) has become an expert at the video game Starfighter, which attracts the attention of a seemingly genial stranger (Robert Preston). The stranger turns out to be an alien in charge of a Star League who recruits Alex to fight in a real live-or-die battle with the wicked Kodan forces in outer space. Directed by Nick Castle Jr. “The Last Starfighter” is one of the earliest films to employ extensive computergenerated imagery (CGI), used in the film to depict its many starships, environments and battle scenes. This was Robert Preston's final role on the big screen, and his character, a "lovable con-man," paid homage to his most famous role as Harold Hill in “The Music Man” (1962). 101 min. 2 p.m. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken. FILM • “Bell, Book and Candle” (Columbia, 1958) Two months after completing work on Alfred Hitchock’s “Vertigo,” James Stewart and Kim Novak were reteamed for this romantic comedy based on the successful Broadway play by John Van Druten. Novak plays Gillian Holroyd, a witch in Greenwich Village, who admires from afar her neighbor, publisher Shep Henderson (Stewart). When she finds out that he is engaged to her old college enemy, Gillian casts a love spell on Shep, but then falls for him for real – a dilemma as witches who fall in love lose their supernatural powers. Rounding out the supporting cast are Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs, Hermione Gingold and Elsa Lanchester and Pyewacket as Gillian’s Siamese cat and spirit guide. Directed by Richard Quine, “Bell, Book and Candle” received Academy Award nominations for Best Art Direction (Cary Odell and Louis Diage) and Best Costume Design (Jean Louis). 106 min. 7:30 p.m. Free, at the Library of Congress Packard Campus Theater located at 19053 Mt. Pony Rd. in Culpeper, VA. No reservations taken.
