A natural disaster, an earthquake and an upside-down ship are on the docket for this coming weekend at the Packard Campus.  Come and see who survives!

“Twister” (1996)

Friday, May 5 @7:30pm

“Twister” (Warner Bros., 1996)

Nothing like a good tornado to bring an estranged couple back together. Bill Paxton is a weather man and Helen Hunt is his soon to be ex-wife, a storm chaser. Can they save Oklahoma and their marriage?  (Color, 113 minutes)

Pink background in front of which is photos of Clark Gable and Jeanette MacDonald. Title of fim is written in script.
“San Francisco” (1936)

Saturday, May 6 @ 2pm

“San Francisco” (MGM, 1936)

Chicago had Mrs. O’Leary’s cow, the City by the Bay had the worst earthquake to ever hit the always shaky State of California. The fire caused by the big rumble interrupts a love story between Clark Gable and Jeanette MacDonald.  (Black & white, 115 minutes)

Dramatic illustration of pivotal scene in film where the ship turns over is depicted along with headshots of film stars, in yellow, at the bottom of this film poster
“The Poseidon Adventure” (1972)

Saturday, May 6 @ 7:30pm

“The Poseidon Adventure” (20th Century-Fox, 1972)

An all-star cast is aboard the S.S. Poseidon on its final voyage… but disaster strikes and what happens next is exactly what we all wished would have happened in every episode of “The Love Boat.” Gene Hackman leads this group of 1970s superstars.   (Color, 117 minutes)
