The circle design in the PAC logo is very loosely based on the Phoenix Column, the first hollow wrought iron column to be patented, which was invented by Samuel Reeves in 1862 and made by the Phoenix Iron Company. The Phoenix Column came to prominence at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition in 1876 and was used in the construction of bridges and buildings all over the world including the Eiffel Tower and the Brooklyn Bridge.

|The Blob (1988)|
“This remake of the 1958 camp classic preserves the tongue-in-cheek flavor of the original, yet uses superb special effects to bring a little more flare to the man-eating blob. As opposed to the slow, oozing menace of the first film, the blob in this film is one mean protoplasm capable of great strength, speed, and jolts of electricity.
Kevin Dillon plays a young man who tries saving himself and his family from the slippery creature that he comes to learn is all part of...

Valley Girl is many things. It’s both an electrifying love story and on of the best 80s time capsules. Nicolas Cage and Deborah Foreman have so much hot chemistry, I think it blew up my Beta player. Coolidge brilliantly explores social pressure and how all-consuming first loves can be. Valley Girl has one of the greatest soundtracks of all time and helps to define the decade. Whether you watch it for the music, the great performances, or for the “that’s...

|Carnival of Souls|
50th Anniversary screening on 35mm! Here we have a genuine low-budget cult oddity, a classic of the “other-worldly” and one which has become increasingly well-respected over the years.
The plot is a simple one: a church organist narrowly escapes drowning in an auto accident, only to find herself in a strange limbo, pursued by an odd phantom-like character and plagued by a series of weird dreams (or are they?) in which her soul hovers between reality and the supernatural....

There are very few films in the history of cinema that can be considered perfect. Jaws (1975) is, without a doubt, one of them. Plagued with production problems of all sorts, Jaws emerged as the first summer blockbuster and changed movies forever. This is a true classic of the silver screen and one of the most quotable movies of all time. Get to the theater early because there is a good chance “we’re going to need a bigger boat.” (Bob Trate)

“A stunning big blowout; this South Seas spectacular from the great John Ford is a rare perennial. The story is pretty much hooey with a dollop of tropical glamour on top, but anyway, marvelously self-serving. The beauteous Lamour is in love with barrel-chested Hall, whose hot temper lands him in hot water with corrupt island governor Massey. There’s a fine assist from Astor, Mitchell, Cowan, Carradine, and Smith. Then the hurricane comes–a real lulu–and steals...

“Set in a distinctly Hollywoodian but nevertheless persuasive Cornwall, this is an impressive supernatural thriller, not unlike Rebecca in its use of an eerily atmospheric house and a sense of morbid brooding about the troubled past. Milland and Hussey are the siblings who buy the old house, only to find it haunted and exerting a sinister influence over the previous owner’s granddaughter (Russell).
Allen’s direction tightens the screws of tension to genuinely...

|Helen of Troy|
Rossana Podesta may not quite possess the face that would launch a thousand ships, but she is otherwise convincing in the title role of Helen of Troy. Filmed in Italy, this super-epic costars Jacques Sernas as Paris of Troy, who sails to Sparta to secure a peace treaty between the two powerful Greek city-states. When he falls in love with Helen, Queen of Sparta, Paris loses all sense of diplomacy.
Helen is willingly “abducted” by Paris and spirited off to Troy, thereby...
