THE MAN WHO SHOT LIBERTY VALANCE Yes, John Ford’s 1962 classic is a Western, but more than that, it’s a movie about America and what it took to make an ostensible nation of laws out of a frontier where might made right. What did it take? Might, among other things. With John Wayne, James Stewart, Vera Miles, Lee Marvin, and practically every old cowboy character actor ever. At the Enoch Pratt Free Library Central Branch’s Wheeler Auditorium March 24 at 10:30 a.m.
PSYCHO Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 proto-slasher classic, on the big screen. Nuff said. At the Charles Theatre March 22 at 9 p.m.
SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN What the hell is this movie about? you may ask. Well, it’s about an eccentric sheik’s attempt to bring the title unlikely activity to the desert of the Arabian Peninsula, and we think the presence of Ewan McGregor and Emily Blunt as the leads make it a bit of a romance too. Lasse Hallström directs. Opens March 23.
SUNRISE F.W. Murnau’s 1927 silent classic comes to the Charles Revival Series. At the Charles Theatre March 24 at noon and March 26 at 7 p.m.
