Patton ( 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm )

(1970) George C. Scott’s complex portrayal of World War II General George S. Patton conveys a paradoxical, multifaceted character whose love of the fray and intense will to win were grounded in a deep-seated hatred of war itself. Director Franklin Schaffner's powerful dramatization is neither a glorification of war nor an anti-war tract but pays homage to a career officer who, unfortunately, could only achieve his destiny in wartime. Violence and profanity within a realistic context. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (PG -- parental guidance suggested) TCM (cable)




Dracula Untold ( 9:00 pm - 10:35 pm )

Saturday, Aug. 29, 9-10:35 p.m. Dracula Untold. (2014) The world’s most famous bloodsucker gets a makeover in director Gary Shore's awkward attempt at revisionist horror history, set in the 15th century. After refusing to hand his young son (Art Parkinson) over as a hostage to the cruel Sultan of Turkey (Dominic Cooper), the formerly savage but now peace-loving Prince of Wallachia (Luke Evans) is facing certain defeat by his Ottoman enemies. So he turns for help to a cave-dwelling vampire, hoping to share in the outcast’s superhuman strength. The terms of their deal give the ruler the powers he needs temporarily. But, while they last, he will have to resist the desperate urge to drink human blood or become undead eternally. Ambiguities aplenty shade this often ponderous story of a man driven to use evil means to accomplish the good ends of protecting his family -- Sarah Gadon plays his beloved wife -- and his country. And the film's treatment of religion is equally hard to pin down, raising red flags for parents despite the script’s laudable freedom from vulgarity and the mostly bloodless nature of the numerous battle scenes. Pervasive combat violence with occasional gore, some gruesome images, and brief nongraphic marital lovemaking. (A-III -- adults) (PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13) Cinemax (cable)

Mr. Deeds Goes To Town ( 7:00 pm - 9:15 pm )

(1936) When a small-town writer of greeting-card verses (Gary Cooper) inherits a fortune, he moves to New York City where he is made into a front-page laughingstock by a two-timing reporter (Jean Arthur) and his plans to help the poor embroil him in a sanity hearing. Director Frank Capra deftly juggles romance and humor in this entertaining Depression-era tale of an ordinary American whose homespun virtues triumph over big-city cynicism and greed. (A-II -- adults and adolescents) (Not rated) TCM (cable)




American Graffiti ( 9:00 pm - 10:55 pm )

(1973) It’s the last, long night of the summer of 1962 and for two recent California grads (Richard Dreyfuss and Ron Howard) jetting away to college in the morning, it's a last chance to taste the innocent fantasies of a teenage world about to be lost, perhaps forever. The hugely eventful evening is packed with high school nostalgia but, despite the bemused smiles of its star-crossed lovers, the mood ultimately turns sober. Director George Lucas’ delightful comedy not only captures the signs of former times but comments on them with eloquence and incisiveness. (A-III -- adults) (PG -- parental guidance suggested. Some material may not be suitable for children) Showtime (cable)
