Chinatown (1974)<h4> Summer Classics</h4>
 

Chinatown ultimately became Roman Polanski’s last film to be shot in the United States and remains a classic depiction of Los Angeles, which is no short order. The neo-noir mystery follows fedora-wearing private investigator Jake Gittes (Jack Nicholson) as he picks up a seemingly routine infidelity case involving Mr. and Mrs. Mulwray. When Mr. Mulwray is snuffed out, the plot thickens as Jake noses around Depression-era Southern California.

E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (1982) <h4>Summer Classics</h4>
 

Often credited with creating the summer blockbuster when he released Jaws, Stephen Spielberg’s largest hit came seven years later (and six years before Mac and Me) with this coming-of-age tale. Stuck on Earth, a docile alien is found and befriended by a lonely young boy named Elliott (Henry Thomas). E.T., as the alien is later named, returns to the suburbs where Elliott and his siblings, including his sister (Drew Barrymore), try to keep E.T. under wraps. Soon, however, governmental forces learn of the alien, creating a dire situation for both Elliott and E.T.

Big (1988)
 <h4>Summer Classics</h4>

The late-80’s saw a slew of Freaky-Friday-but-with-dudes films, including Like Father Like Son (1987), Vice Versa (1988), and 18 Again! (1988). While those films were largely dismissed, Big (1988) hit at the same time and managed not to be clumped together with those clunkers, earning two Oscar nominations and making its budget back nearly tenfold. Unlike the previously mentioned body-switch movies, Big keeps it internal as 12-year-old Josh (David Moscow) alone magically ages after longing to be “big” and becomes 30-year-old Josh (Tom Hanks) overnight. Heading to New York City, the suddenly-aged Josh manages to secure employment and does his best to juggle the difficulties a career and romance throws his way while gaining an appreciation for childhood’s carefreeness.
