Rebel Without a Cause is the story of a trio of suburban, middle-class teenagers who are unable to deal with the pressures coming from their parents and peers.
James Dean stars in one of the three films that made him a screen legend. By the time it was released, Dean had died in a car crash.

Wife vs. Secretary(1936), directed by Clarence Brown, is a MGM romantic comedy starring Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and Myrna Loy.
Wife vs. Secretaryis a perfect example of Hollywood gloss, with three topnotch stars towering over inferior material. Harlow is particularly good in this tale of a secretary who becomes invaluable to her boss, Gable, causing complications in both their lives.

Kennington Shoot-em Ups presents; Shane (1953), Monday 26th Feb @ 7:30pm
A season of great Hollywood westerns.
Voted no. 3 in the American Film Institute’s Top 10 Westerns, and receiving the Academy Award for Best Colour Cinematography, Shane, directed by George Stevens, is the one of the best-loved westerns of all time.
Alan Ladd plays Shane, the mysterious gunfighter, who arrives at the homestead of Joe and Marian Starrett (Van Heflin and Jean Arthur). He soon becomes involved in the Starrett’s battle against cattle ranchers trying to drive them off their land, and becomes a figure of fascination to their son Joey (Brandon deWilde).

Vito Project presents; The Living End (1992), Wednesday February 28th @ 7pm 
ReShape and the Cinema Museum present the third season of the VITO Project, a series of free monthly screenings bringing generations of LGBTs together to provide an alternative space to mix, watch films and share ideas.
The Vito Project presents The Living End, a 1992 film by underground filmmaker Gregg Araki.
The film, part of the New Queer Cinema genre, is an early film portrayal of gay men living with AIDS. As such, the film averts many cliches common to portrayals of gay characters at the time; no Magical Queers or buried gays here. Instead, the main characters are Anti-Heroes struggling with meaninglessness and alienation from society.  Find out more here.
Please note; This is a free event, but we need your donations on the night to ensure the continuation of the VITO project.  Donations are VITO’s only source of funding and we need to raise an average of £5 per person just to cover our costs.  Please give if you are able to.
