It's a new month, so that means a new list of classic movies. March offers an abundance of films in Miami, specifically because of the Miami International Film Festival happening the first two weeks, but that doesn’t mean the cinemas are stopping the good ol' classics, though. Here’s what your favorite arthouses are showing this month.
Coral Gables Art Cinema
Gables Cinema will offer the most options this month. Its daytime programming includes three films and Secret Celluloid Society’s After Hours series featuring the rest. First up is Evil Dead 2, screening Saturday, March 5, followed by Miami Connection March 12. Monday, March 14, through Thursday, March 17, the cinema will show Akira Kurosawa’s Ran and 4K.
Later in the month, the cinema will feature three classics: Pulp Fiction March 19, Sense and Sensibility March 20, and Howl’s Moving Castle on March 19 and 20. The month closes with Return of the Living Dead Saturday, March 26.
O Cinema will show several films this month, beginning with the Wynwood location hosting Popcorn Night's anniversary showing of Howard the Duck March 29. At the Miami Beach location, Federico Fellini’s City of Women opens March 18, and the usual Rocky Horror Picture Show screening is March 25.
Though the Miami Beach SoundScape at New World Center has grown fond of showing mostly films from the past decade, some older flicks do occasionally sneak into the mix. This month, two films are from the 2000s: Rent (March 9) and Austin Powers in Goldmember (March 16). But there are some real classics too, thanks to the French Embassy and its presentations of French films for the following three months. See Jules Dassin’s Du rififi chez les hommes (Rififi) March 15.
Miami Beach Cinematheque
With Terence Davies’ new film, Sunset Song, screening at MIFF this year, it’s only appropriate that the man get a retrospective. So MBCinema is teaming up with the festival to showcase two of his features: The Long Day Closes (March 10) and Distant Voices, Still Lives (March 17).
Blue Starlite Mini Urban Drive-in
The drive-in has relocated to Palmetto Bay on Old Cutler Road and is ready and raring to show plenty of familiar flicks and a few new choices. Kill Bill screens tonight, Friday, March 4; ET and Back to the Future show Saturday, March 5; The Wizard of Oz (with optional Pink Floyd soundtrack) March 12; The Goonies March 12 and 18; and Dr. No March 19.
This month, a few places have some solo film hits. Bill Cosford Cinema kicks off its Douglas Sirk retrospective with a $5 screening of All That Heaven Allows on 35mm March 20. And Pérez Art Museum Miami will show Splash March 24.
