Ready, camera, action! Before Hollywood was in Hollywood, it was in Santa Barbara. With a film history that dates back to the days of Charlie Chaplin and silent film, Santa Barbara has always held moviemaking close to its heart, not to mention its popularity as a production venue for both commercials and feature films, such as Sideways and It's Complicated. Grab some popcorn and settle in for a night of movie watching unlike any other.
Based on the 1934 novel of the same name by James M. Cain, The Postman Always Rings Twice is a 1946 drama-film noir that impressed critics at the time of its release. A stunning example of true Hollywood film noir, in this classic film, Lana Turner plays the perfect uncertain blonde, and John Garfield the chance, bumbling protagonist. Don't miss your chance to see this iconic film in the classic Granada Theatre's big screen!
E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial (often referred to simply as E.T.) is a 1982 American sci-fi-family film about a lonely boy who befriends an extraterrestrial, dubbed "E.T.", who is stranded on Earth.

Winner of 53 awards and 28 nominations, this movie broke box-office records, proving that family-friendly films could be smash successes.

It's the 1920s. Silent movies are giving way to talking pictures, and a hoofer-turned-matinee idol (Gene Kelly) is caught in the bumpy transition, as are his buddy (Donald O'Connor), prospective ladylove (Debbie Reynolds) and shrewish co-star (Jean Hagen in her Oscar-nominated performance).
