Looking for some air-conditioned, big-screen entertainment that's a bit out of the ordinary? Pick up on one or more of these specialty screenings taking place around the greater Savannah area over the next seven days.

Down and dirty

On Aug. 10, Tybee's historic, single-screen Post Theater offers a one-night-only revival of one of the most popular coming-of-age flicks ever made. The cornball, "mainstream cult" picture "Dirty Dancing," starring the late Patrick Swayze as a hunky dance instructor plying his trade at a pricey Catskills resort in the early '60s, and Jennifer Grey as the idealistic 17-year-old who falls for him will light up the screen. Packed with a hit soundtrack full of vintage pop and R&B songs (a few of which had not even been released by the time the actions in the film supposedly take place), it's a perennial basic-cable fave that most members of the past two generations have never had an opportunity to see in a theatrical setting. Showtime is 7 p.m., with a glass of wine and a chocolate kiss included in the admission price.

At the Lucas

That same day, at the exact same time, downtown's historic (and much larger) Lucas Theatre presents a high-definition digital stream of the new U.K. stage production of playwright Peter Shaffer's 1979 musical drama "Amadeus." A fictionalized account of the rivalry which consumed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and his contemporary (yet less revered) classical composer Antonio Salieri, this engrossing tale was adapted into a feature film of the same name in 1984 - which nabbed the Academy Award for Best Picture. This National Theatre Company production stars classically trained Shakespearean thespian Lucian Msamati, whom some may recognize as Salladhor Saan on HBO's "Game of Thrones." Don't miss out on supporting the Lucas' welcome efforts to bring top-quality filmed stage dramas to the city at amazingly affordable prices. 7 p.m. showtime.

The next night, the Lucas kicks off an eagerly anticipated fun triple-feature spread over two days. It's the first three entries in the Indiana Jones franchise. While the relative quality and entertainment level of Steven Spielberg's and George Lucas' intentionally derivative homages to the glory days of old-school adventure serials varies, each one of these period tales of intrepid archaeologist-turned-antiquities-hunter-and-Nazi-adversary Dr. Henry "Indiana" Jones (Harrison Ford) is an extremely engrossing barrage of thrilling action sequences, daring stuntwork and witty, screwball comedy-esque banter.

At 7 p.m., Aug. 11 the Lucas shows 1981's "Raiders of the Lost Ark," followed the next afternoon at 3 p.m. by 1984's "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom," and finally at 7 p.m. that night with 1989's "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade," perhaps the most unabashedly gleeful entry of the series - featuring a scene-stealing turn by Sir Sean Connery as Ford's character's semi-estranged father. If you've never seen any of these glorious, old-fashioned popcorn movies on a giant screen, I recommend you rectify that this weekend.

Then, on Aug. 13, the Lucas' summer series of classic Walt Disney Pictures animated features serves up the 1995 Disney/Pixar Animation Studios collaborative action-comedy "Toy Story," starring the voice talents of Tom Hanks, Tim Allen, Don Rickles, Annie Potts, Wally Shawn and the late, great Jim Varney. This clever story of a world where children's toys are sentient beings that can move and speak on their own (yet pretend to be inanimate objects whenever humans are present) has made almost half a billion dollars to date, and retains the capacity to captivate young and old alike and pry a chuckle out of even the most hardened codgers. Showtime at 3 p.m.

Foreign anime

On Aug. 12, speaking of CGI animated flicks, the respected distributor GKids has partnered with Fathom Events to re-issue the 2014, French-made movie "Mune: Guardian of the Moon" as a one-show-only digital streaming event in U.S. cinemas. In our neck of the woods, it will be shown at the Regal Stadium 10 multiplex behind the Savannah Mall. While this title made next to nothing at the box office, it was nominated for Best Feature Film at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, and wound up winning Best Film at the prestigious Tokyo Anime Awards. A fantasy set in an imagined world where the Sun has been stolen and must be heroically retrieved by the unorthodox team of a diminutive faun and a young girl, it was originally released in 3D, but advertising for this event makes it hard to ascertain if that's how it will be presented now (or if it will simply be shown in standard 2D). Either way, it's not every day that a foreign-made animated film can be seen in a local venue. Showtime is 12:55 p.m.

Please note that reports are the Regal Stadium 10 has been having all sorts of technical problems with Fathom's streaming events for the past few months, and many of those events have malfunctioned so badly that they were unwatchable and patrons were forced to demand refunds. Attend this venue's streaming events at your own risk.

Outlaws

The next afternoon at that same venue (and at the Cinemark multiplex in nearby Bluffton), Fathom and the TCM network team up for a special 50th anniversary engagement of director Arthur Penn's groundbreaking 1967 box office smash "Bonnie and Clyde," starring Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty as the titular, real-life outlaw couple of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow. They terrorized (and captivated the imaginations of) U.S. citizens during the Great Depression by leading a ragtag gang of criminals in a series of violent robberies. An Oscar-winning picture that broke all manner of taboos regarding filmic portrayals of both sexual and violent content, it remains a stone classic of its time period. 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. shows on both Aug. 13 and 16.

Then, on Aug. 14 at both those same venues, Fathom offers the premiere of the brand-new animated feature "Batman and Harley Quinn." In addition to the titular hero and villain, this original co-production between Warner Bros. and the DC Comics Universe, includes such characters as Poison Ivy, The Floronic Man and Nightwing in "an ecological quest to save the planet." Melissa Rauch, known for her work on TV's "The Big Bang Theory," makes her debut as the voice of Harley Quinn, while fan fave Kevin Conroy ("Batman: The Animated Series") is back on board voicing the Dark Knight. This streaming event will also include a short featurette on Quinn's character. Showtime at 7:30 p.m.

Out in Springfield on Aug. 13, the restored Mars Theatre has programmed a one-show-only engagement of another landmark Hollywood picture about an iconic pair of real-life outlaws: 1969's "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," directed by George Roy Hill ("The Sting," "Slaughterhouse-Five," "The World According to Garp") and starring the charismatic duo of Robert Redford and Paul Newman as two notorious bank robbers on the run. Look for Cloris Leachman ("Bad Santa") and Strother Martin ("Cool Hand Luke") in small but key roles. The prestigious American Film Institute ranks this movie the 49th Greatest American Film ever made. 3 p.m. showtime.

Stamos feature

And last but certainly not least, the Psychotronic Film Society's ongoing weekly series of underappreciated and/or simply obscure feature films tips its hat to actor, musician and singer John Stamos (TV's "General Hospital," "ER," "Full House") with a rare public screening of one of his least-known feature theatrical films. The exact title of this supremely guilty pleasure will remain a secret until showtime, but it can be revealed that it's a forgotten title which was unavailable on DVD for decades and rarely seen on cable - yet retains a fervent worldwide cult following. Adventurous viewers with a penchant for campy action flicks are encouraged to take a chance, buy a ticket and be pleasantly surprised. 8 p.m. Aug. 16 showtime, with discounts on craft beer and organic wine during the show.

Until next issue, see you at the movies, be kind to those around you and don't forget to turn off that cell phone.
