This gripping historical drama, based on the acclaimed play by Cyril Gely and directed by Volker Schlöndorff (The Tin Drum), tells of the relationship between Dietrich von Cholitz (Niels Arestrup), the German military governor of occupied Paris, and Swedish consul-general Raoul Nordling (André Dussollier). The fate of Paris hangs on the line as Allies are about to enter Paris and Hitler wants to dynamite the city the way the Allies destroyed Berlin. Only a careful act of diplomacy between these two powerful men can save it from that destruction.

Director Carol Reed out-Hitchcocked Alfred Hitchcock with this timeless thriller, shot on location in Vienna, about a man (Joseph Cotton) who investigates the death of an old friend (Orson Welles), a black-market opportunist during the war. Author Graham Greene wrote the screenplay, and Robert Krasker provided the unforgettable photography, full of shadows and odd angles. With its airtight script, iconic acting, haunting music, and stark photography, The Third Man is routinely referred to as one of the greatest movies ever made.

The movie that everyone thinks of when they hear the word “epic” returns to the big screen at the PMA so audiences can bask in the epic-ness of David Lean’s vision—if you’ve only seen it on your TV, do not miss it. A never-better Peter O’Toole plays T.E. Lawrence, a British soldier who serves in the Middle East during World War I and finds his loyalties conflicted when he finds himself at home among the Arab people. Alec Guinness, Anthony Quinn, and Omar Sharif also star, but the main attraction may yet be the majestic desert and Lean’s equally impressive ambition.

This documentary shows us the incredible world of the Beatles through a perspective we’ve never before seen: that of Freda Kelly, the shy girl from Liverpool who asked an up-and-coming band to be their secretary without realizing how far this would take her. She stayed loyal to the band to the very end, witnessing seismic cultural shifts first hand, and now after years of privacy, she finally tells her story to the public.
