Double Feature Saturdays!
|Right before I moved at the end of March 2000, I had some cool double features for our final meetings of the Illinois version of MWSTAFFO's Video Club. All of the movies were shown on LaserDisc with the full home theater thing going on. I just picked out movies I like... some are well known, while others are more obscure.|

The Godfather Trilogy
|Hey everybody (all three of you), Luna suggested watching the Godfather series and since they're classics and I had never seen any of them I said "OK". So... Fridays in December we watched the three Godfather movies on LaserDisc.|
|Friday, Dec. 5, 1997 - 7:30pm||The Godfather|
|Friday, Dec. 12, 1997 - 7:30pm||The Godfather II|
|Friday, Dec. 19, 1997 - 7:30pm||The Godfather III|
|Since we moved to a new place, we decided to do something a little different. Instead of watching a TV show, we watched three recent movies by the Bard himself. Come on, I know it's not V: The Final Battle, but it was a lot more fun than high school English class. Besides, it didn't hurt us to get a little culture for once.|

Shakespeare's* Romeo + Juliet
Saturday, October 11, 1997 - 7:30 pm
Billy's best-known play has a little bit of everything and now it's got automatic weapons! Come see this weird modern retelling of the classic love story starring Leonardo Dicaprio and Claire Danes.
* Duh. You mean it's not Stephen King's Romeo + Juliet?
Saturday, October 25, 1997 - 6:00 pm
Grab an early dinner because this is Kenneth Branagh's four-hour un-cut version of the Shakespeare classic. Don't worry, we'll have an intermission and a couple of breaks and everyone that stays for the whole movie gets an "I Survived the Melancholy Dane" t-shirt. (No, not really.)
