Middletown Arts Center Announces February Movies at the MAC

(MIDDLETOWN, NJ) -- The Middletown Arts Center has announced the lineup for Movies at the MAC in February. The movie series presents three separate programs spotlighting the best in comedy, theater and music on celluloid: The MAC Classic Comedy Movie Series, The MAC Broadway Matinee Film Series and Monday Night Music Club at the MAC.


Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure (1985) | Saturday, February 17 at 7:00pm  | Run Time: 90 min | PG. Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure, a film that never fails to delight with its perfect mix of imagination and glee, will be presented by Middletown comedian Vinnie Brand, owner of The Stress Factory Comedy Club (New Brunswick). Pee-wee’s bicycle, the keenest bike in the world, is missing. It’s his most prized possession…and he’s just got to get it back. Searching high, low and in between, Pee-wee hits the open road and encounters riotous adventures with bikers, cowboys, cons, a phantom trucker, a waitress and even Warner Brothers Studios. Directed by Tim Burton and starring Paul Reubens, Mark Holton, Diane Salinger, Judd Omen and Jan Hooks.


Grease (1978) | Sunday, February 18 at 2:00pm | Run Time: 110 min | PG. Grease is the word this February as we celebrate the 70th birthday of New Jersey native, John Travolta, on the MAC’s big screen! Experience the singing and dancing world of Grease, the most successful movie musical of all time, as well as the friendships, romances and adventures of Danny, Sandy and the rest of Rydell High. Based on the Broadway hit, Grease tells the story of good girl Sandy Olsson and greaser Danny Zuko who fall in love over the summer. When they unexpectedly discover they’re now in the same high school, will they be able to rekindle their romance? Directed by Randal Kleiser and starring John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing, Jeff Conaway and Didi Conn. Produced by Paramount Pictures.

Called the “greatest rock film ever made”, this landmark documentary follows The Rolling Stones on their notorious 1969 U.S. tour. When three hundred thousand members of the Love Generation collided with a few dozen Hells Angels at San Francisco’s Altamont Speedway, Direct Cinema pioneers David Maysles, Albert Maysles, and Charlotte Zwerin were there to immortalize on film the bloody slash that transformed a decade’s dreams into disillusionment.
