It's May! April showers have made way for a flowerbed of classic films this month. Now that summer vacation is on the horizon, it's time to check out some great old movies on the big screen between all of those beach runs. A cool, dark theater is actually the best place to be when you have a sunburn.

Bill Cosford Cinema

This month at the Cosford Cinema, a new series of classics for the summer kicks off. Flaming Classics, focusing on queer films paired with drag performances, opens Memorial Day weekend with a screening of What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? on 35mm Sunday, May 28. The accompanying performers are Jupiter Velvet and whiteandpopular.

Coral Gables Art Cinema

Gables Cinema begins May by highlighting a female filmmaker whose work deserves the big-screen treatment: Lina Wertmüller. A quartet of her films will play in the series Four Beauties, which will feature Swept Away and Seven Beauties May 5 trough 7 and Love & Anarchy and The Seduction of Mimi May 8 through 11.

The After Hours program continues with Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior on 35mm on the 6th, Se7en on 35mm on the 13th, Total Recall on the 20th, and Ghostbusters on 70mm for two nights, the 26th and 27th.
