Thursday, January 19 at 7:30 pm
DR. NO (Terence Young, 1962, USA/UK, 110 min)
Released in 1962, this first James Bond movie remains one of the best, and serves as an entertaining reminder that the Bond series began (in keeping with Ian Fleming's novels) with a surprising lack of gadgetry and big-budget fireworks.
Friday, January 20 at 7:30 pm
GOLDFINGER (Guy Hamilton, 1964, USA/UK 110 min)
Dry as ice, dripping with deadpan witticisms, only Sean Connery's Bond would dare disparage the Beatles, that other 1964 phenomenon.
Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 pm
THUNDERBALL (Terence Young, 1964, USA/UK, 130 min)
James Bond's fourth adventure takes him to the Bahamas, where a NATO warplane with a nuclear payload has disappeared into the sea.
Sunday, January 22 at 7:30 pm
LIVE & LET DIE (Guy Hamilton, 1973, UK/USA, 121 min.)
Roger Moore was introduced as James Bond in this 1973 action movie featuring secret agent 007. More self-consciously suave and formal than predecessor Sean Connery, he immediately reestablished Bond as an uncomplicated and wooden fellow for the feel-good '70s.
When: Weekend, Thursday-Sunday, January 19 - 22 at 7:30 pm
