Another month has passed and another arrived. Cinema remains much the same. Most of what is new in theaters this month isn't worth your time, and with Oscar-nominated films being replayed to death, it’s better to turn to the classics. Here's what's showing in Miami this month:

Christine Vachon and Todd Haynes Retrospectives 
At the Cosford Cinema, the retrospective of producer Christine Vachon’s work that began in January continues with her appearance happening on February 10. This month features two hits at the Cosford: The Notorious Bettie Page on February 6 in 2k digital projection, and Far From Heaven for free on 35mm on February 10 with Vachon conducting a Q&A session afterwards. 

Over at the Miami Beach Cinematheque (and in collaboration with the Cosford) the retrospective for director Todd Haynes begins. Poison is the first of the bunch tonight, on February 4, with an introduction by Humanizing the Vacuum film critic Alfred Soto. The film Safe follows on February 18, introduced by Igor Shteyrenberg, director of the Miami Jewish Film Festival. Last in the set is Velvet Goldmine, introduced by Juan Barquin, New Times freelancer and Dim the House Lights critic, on February 25.

Vachon will make another appearance in Miami at MBC in part of the theater's Speaking in Cinema Series on February 11 along with Rolling Stone critic David Ehrlich and Cosford Cinema director Trae DeLellis.

Night and Day in the Gables
At the Coral Gables Art Cinema in the month of February, there are a bunch of classic movie screenings. For starters, an encore of Nicolas Roeg’s The Man Who Fell to Earth screens tonight, February 4. Later in the month, a daytime treasure is a week of Luchino Visconti’s Rocco and His Brothers in celebration of the new 4K projector, starting February 19.

And then there’s the After Hours series with Secret Celluloid Society bringing four flicks on 35mm. February kicks off with a David Bowie tribute Labyrinth this Saturday and The Notebook for all those lovebirds on the 13th. Everyone will head back in time with Back to the Future on February 20. Closing out the month is one helluva road trip: Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas on the 27th.

O, Sweet Death
O Cinema has a couple of flicks at two of its locations this month, specifically Wynwood and Miami Beach. One is their regular monthly Rocky Horror Picture Show screening at Miami Beach, which takes place on February 26. At their Wynwood spot, it’s just screams of horror and gleeful thrills with the 20th anniversary of Wes Craven’s masterpiece Scream on February 12, presented by Popcorn Frights.

Around Town
The Tower Theater is showing Antonio Pietrangeli's I Knew Her Well starting on February 5 for a week-long run with a new restoration. Over at the Miami Beach Soundscape, only one real classic exists within a slate of films from the 2000s and beyond: Tim Burton's 1996 Mars Attacks! on February 24. At the Perez Art Museum Miami, their sea themed movie series continues with Wes Anderson’s The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou on February 25.

Out of all the classics showing this month, the most anticipated is a screening of Dick Tracy (1990) at the Olympia Theater. Hosted by the Secret Celluloid Society on February 27, the evening promises to have plenty of surprise in store.
