Forum Cinemas will be entertaining you with cinema classics!
 

Come and enjoy our pearls of cinematic classics at your own Coca-Cola Plaza cinema. 

The films to be shown as part of the CINEMA CLASSICS event series include early roles by some of the great film legends who are no longer with us, along with a good many cult films. The Cinema Classics season offers a unique opportunity to see pearls of cinematic history on the big screen. It’s a great experience for anyone who has yet to see their favourites on the cinema screen, not to mention anyone who is only now starting to get to know these classic actors and films.

Every month, we will be showing one film which has an important place in cinematic history: In August we will be trailing a blaze with the violent criminal couple-in-love, Bonnie & Clyde. September sees the third instalment in the Godfather trilogy, when the powerful final shot is fired by Francis Ford Coppola’s The Godfather Part III. In October we greet the great Mel Gibson with a epic story of "Braveheart" and November brings us the great dramatic sci-fi "Close Encounters of the Third Kind". in December we greet the mighty die hard John McClane with the one and only legendary action film "Die Hard".

In December, we bravely continued with Sylvester Stallone’s breakthrough role in the film Rocky, and in January 2017 we continued with Francis Ford Coppola’s highest level of achievement, The Godfather.

BONNIE AND CLYDE

August

COCA-COLA PLAZA (Screen 4) - at 18.55

Bonnie and Clyde balances itself on a knife-edge of laughter and terror, thanks to vivid title role performances by Warren Beatty and Faye Dunaway and superb support from Michael J. Pollard, Gene Hackman and Estelle Parsons. Director Arthur Penn keeps the film's sensibilities tough but never cruel. It continually dazzles, especially in the work of cinematographer Burnett Guffey and editor Dede Allen. And as film lovers since have discovered, it's no ordinary gangster movie.

 

THE GODFATHER: PART III

September

In this third film in the epic Corleone trilogy, Al Pacino reprises the role of powerful family leader Michael Corleone. Now in his 60's, Michael is dominated by two passions: freeing his family from crime and finding a suitable successor. That successor could be fiery Vincent (Andy Garcia)... but he may also be the spark that turns Michael's hope of business legitimacy into an inferno of mob violence.

 

BRAVEHEART

October

In the late 13th century, William Wallace (Mel Gibson) returns to Scotland after living away from his homeland for many years. The king of Scotland has died without an heir and the king of England, a ruthless pagan known as Edward the Longshanks, has seized the throne. Wallace becomes the leader of a ramshackle yet courageous army determined to vanquish the greater English forces. Wallace's courage and passion unite his people in Braveheart. 

Mel Gibson directs, produces and stars in a film combining action, intrigue and romance to tell the story of the legendary Scottish knight, Sir William Wallace, and the love that inspired him to fight for his country's freedom.

 

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS OF THE THIRD KIND

November

In the midst of a series of unexplained events, electrical lineman Roy Neary encounters a UFO on a deserted road whilst investigating a large-scale power outage. Roy becomes increasingly obsessed with UFOs and subliminal messaging following his experience, distancing himself from his wife and children but drawing him closer towards parallel investigations being conducted by scientists, the military and other survivors of encounters who are attempting to communicate with the mysterious otherworldly presence.

 

DIE HARD

December

On Christmas Eve, tough New York detective John McClane arrives in Los Angeles with the aim of reconciling with his estranged wife, Holly at the Christmas party of her employer, the Nakatomi Corporation. When the party is disrupted by a group of heavily armed criminals led by the charismatic Hans Gruber, McClane evades capture and begins a one-man war against the hostage takers who are attempting to rob the corporation whilst occupying the LAPD and the FBI by posing as terrorists. Outmanned, outgunned and ill-equipped for the task at hand, McClane calls in the help of a local beat cop in his crusade against Gruber.

 

Past screenings:

TOP GUN

The opening shot of the Cinema Classics events will be given on August 17 with an action film from 1986 directed by the early departed cult director Tony Scott, “Top Gun”, starring young Tom Cruise and Val Kilmer. A sequel is currently being discussed, which would, if possible, include Tom Cruise who has appeared in numerous movies in recent years.

Danny Boyle is currently filing a sequel for the hit, which should reach cinema audiences as soon as in 2017. “Trainspotting”, which was screened in 1996, has also been declared one of the best British films by the British Film Institute.

NB! The film will be screened in the English language without subtitles.

 

TAXI DRIVER

On 2 November, the exceptional Robert De Niro is stepping onto our cinema screens in director Martin Scorsese’s famous tough thriller, ‘Taxi Driver’, also starring young Jodie Foster. ‘Taxi Driver’, which premiered in 1976, has been classed as one of the best and most significant movies in the history of film.

The session at Coca-Cola Plaza will be opened by a great fan of the masterpiece, the film critic Ralf Sauter. The session at Ekraan Cinema will be opened by Andres Kauts, Elektriteater’s visionary and a firm film fan.

The opening session is being screened at crystal-clear 4K resolution. In the capital, there will be an additional session on Wednesday evenings throughout November. At Ekraan Cinema, the film is exclusively screened on 2 November only.

Travis Bickle (De Niro) is a mentally unstable Vietnam war veteran who is working as a taxi driver at night. The violence and decline which is prevalent in New York weigh down so much on Travis’ psyche so that the man is prepared to commit violent acts. Meeting an underage prostitute launches a chain of unforeseen events with an unexpected and violent culmination for Travis. 

All films that are to be screened during the course of the CINEMA CLASSICS series have been digitally restored. They will be displayed using, at least, 2K resolution and high-quality 5.1 sound.

NB: The film is being screened in the English language without subtitles.

 

ROCKY

On December 7, we will be presenting an opportunity to see the grand old master Sylvester Stallone’s breakthrough role in what has been declared the world’s best sports film – in the drama “Rocky”. The film, which was first screened in 1976, has six sequels today, with the latest for now screened in 2015.
NB! The film will be screened in the English language without subtitles.
 

THE GODFATHER

The oldest film to be screened in the course of the Cinema Classics events series will be Francis Ford Coppola’s world-famous drama “The Godfather” screened on January 11, starring Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, and Robert Duvall. The criminal drama from 1972 also has two sequels, “The Godfather: Part II” (1974) and “The Godfather: Part III” (1990). 

NB! The film will be screened in the English language without subtitles.

 

JAWS

When a gigantic great white shark begins to menace the small island community of Amity, a police chief, a marine scientist and a grizzled fisherman set out to stop it.

 

FULL METAL JACKET

A superb ensemble cast falls in for action in Stanley Kubrick's brilliant saga about the Vietnam War and the dehumanising process that turns people into trained killers. Joker (Matthew Modine), Animal Mother (Adam Baldwin), Gomer (Vincent D'Onofrio), Eightball (Dorian Harewood), Cowboy (Arliss Howard) and more, are all plunged into a boot-camp hell pitbulled by a leatherlung D.I. (R. Lee Ermey) who views the would-be devil dogs as grunts, maggots or something less.

The action is savage, the story unsparing, the dialogue spiked with scathing humour. 'Full Metal Jacket', from its rigours of basic training to its nightmare of combat in Hue City, scores a cinematic direct hit.
