Summer Classics at the Strand - Chariots of Fire

Once again, the Strand Theater in Clinton is hosting their Summer Movie Classics.  A different classic movie every Monday night through July and August.

Chariots of Fire was the Best Picture winner for 1981. It's the story of two British runners competing in the 1924 Olympics.  After the film, you'll want to hum the theme music to yourself while running in slow motion!

We'll plan to meet outside the lobby about 1/2 hour before the movie begins.  If you need to reach me, my cell phone number is[masked]-0455.

The schedule:

  • July 8 - Jaws (1975)
  • July 15 - Back to the Future (1985)
  • July 22 - Rebel Without a Cause (1955)
  • July 29 - Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988)
  • August 5 - Chariots of Fire (1981)
  • August 12 - Rain Man (1988)
  • August 19 - E.T. The Extra Terrestrial (1982)
  • August 26 - Vertigo (1958)

    i didn't like this film when I saw it when it came out, but I liked it better this time around. I had a different appreciation for it that came with age I guess.

    Jaws or Back to the Future are more my thing. I thought it was slow and found myself not caring if this guy ran or not.

    Races? That's funny. Demolition derby's are all about last car still running. I've never seen this film; it should be exciting.
