February 16: BATTLE OF THE SEXES
In the wake of the sexual revolution and the rise of the women’s movement, the 1973 tennis match between women’s World #1 Billie Jean King (Emma Stone) and ex-men’s-champ and serial hustler Bobby Riggs (Steve Carell) was billed as the BATTLE OF THE SEXES and became one of the most watched televised sports events of all time, reaching 90 million viewers around the world.

February 23: Lost in Paris
LOST IN PARIS Is the plight of a small-town Canadian librarian who encounters a strangely seductive, oddly egotistical French vagabond. When Fiona’s orderly life is disrupted by a letter of distress from her elderly Aunt Martha, who is living in Paris, Fiona hops on the first plane she can and arrives only to discover that Martha has disappeared. In an avalanche of spectacular disasters, she encounters Dom, the affable, but annoying tramp who just won’t leave her alone. LOST IN PARIS is a wondrously fun and hectic tale of peculiar people finding love while lost in the City of Lights.
