Monsters University (2013) <h4>Professor Pfinklepfunder’s $1 Sunday Family Films</h4>
We’re starting the school year (and the new Professor Pfinklepfunder $1 Sunday Family Films Series) by going to college with old pals Mike Wazowski and Sulley, who before they were employed by Monsters, Inc., were students too. Ever since he was a kid monster, Mike has dreamed of becoming a Scarer. To make his dream a reality, he enrolls at Monsters University. During his first semester, he meets Sulley , a natural-born Scarer. Sulley and Mike engage in a fierce rivalry that ultimately gets them both kicked out of MU's elite Scare Program. To make things right, Mike and Sulley—along with a bunch of misfit monsters—will have to learn to work together.

Stand and Deliver (1988) <h4>Professor Pfinklepfunder’s $1 Sunday Family Films</h4>
From the genre of inspirational teacher films and released near the similar Lean on Me, Stand and Deliver broadly swept the Independent Spirit Awards in 1988 and was inducted into the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress in 2011. This biopic depicts Jaime Escalante (Edward James Olmos), who immigrated from Bolivia to Los Angeles and taught high school while being hassled by tough students like Angel Guzman (Lou Diamond Phillips). Mr. Escalante is also pressured by his bosses, who want him to control his raucous classroom. Caught in the middle, he opts to immerse his students in higher math. After intensive study, his students ace California's calculus test, which begets scrutiny from doubtful officials.

Paddington (2014) <h4>Professor Pfinklepfunder’s $1 Sunday Family Films</h4>
After a deadly earthquake destroys his home in Peruvian rainforest, a young bear makes his way to England in search of a new home. The bear, dubbed "Paddington" for the London train station where he was found, is offered temporary haven with the family of Henry and Mary Brown (Hugh Bonneville and Sally Hawkins), where he subsequently acquires a keen taste for marmalade. Although Paddington's amazement at urban living soon endears him to the Browns, someone else has her eye on him: taxidermist Millicent Clyde (Nicole Kidman) has designs on the rare bear and his hide.

Paddington 2 (2017) <h4>Professor Pfinklepfunder’s $1 Sunday Family Films</h4>
Having settled in with the Brown family since our screening of the first Paddington film last week, Paddington the bear is a popular member of his community, teaching them both directly and indirectly how to properly wear jaunty hats. And the British appreciate him greatly for that. One fine day, he spots a pop-up book in an antique shop, which would make the most perfect present for his beloved aunt's 100th birthday. When a sticky-fingered filcher steals the prized book, Paddington gets his paws on the whodunnit and embarks on a quest to unmask the culprit before Aunt Lucy's big celebration.
