Sept. 18: “How to Steal a Million” (1966). Art
collector and forger Charles Bonnet lets his ego get the best of his

suave cat burglar to steal back the statue.
Sept. 25: “Pillow Talk” (1959). Womanizing
songwriter Brad Allen spends hours on the phone wooing his many
women. Problem is, he shares a party line with prim interior
decorator Jan Morrow, who's miffed because she can't get any calls.

Besides enjoying free movies, visitors can sample
