JIMI HENDRIX LIVE AT WOODSTOCK
Directed by: D.A. Pennebaker
Starring: Jimi Hendrix
Nine o'clock on Monday morning, August 18, 1969: while the work force was starting the day, Jimi Hendrix was taking the stage at Woodstock. While hundreds of thousands had already left, 25,000 people remained to see this incredible performance. Hendrix, along with drummer Mitch Mitchell and bassist Billy Cox, offered masterly renditions of the songs of the recently disbanded Experience ("Hey Joe," "Foxey Lady"), and gave a preview of the blues-based Band of Gypsys ("Izabella," "Hear My Train A Comin'"), as well as Jimi's era-defining rendition of "The Star Spangled Banner." Though the weekend had witnessed some landmark performances by other great artists, this performance from Hendrix is regarded by many as the defining moment in a festival ripe with defining moments. First showing in Denmark.
THE LAST WALTZ
Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Martin Scorsese's stunning THE LAST WALTZ captures the Band's historic farewell performance in San Francisco on Thanksgiving Day, 1976, and features many revealing interviews with members of the legendary group. Among the many titles included are "The Weight," "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," "Helpless," and "I Shall be Released." Featuring some of rock & roll's most revered figures--including Bob Dylan, Neil Young, and Joni Mitchell--THE LAST WALTZ is unquestionably one of the greatest concert films ever.

In the midst of this mayhem one person stands out: Karl. Whilst the new millennium is casting its web and creating a vast mental breakdown, Karl gradually becomes conscious of the absurdity of the world and realises just how difficult it is to be human..... Won Prix du Jury in Cannes 2002
SOME LIKE IT HOT
Directed by: Billy Wilder
Starring Marilyn Monroe – classic from 1939 in new copy.

This classic is one of Hollywood's most beloved comedies. Two musicians (the outrageously hilarious Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis) are forced to go on the run from gangsters and end up posing as women in an all-girl band, which includes a never-better Marilyn Monroe. While Curtis falls for Monroe, Lemmon gets stuck with Joe E. Brown.

The film is ranked number 1 on the American Film Institute's list of America's 100 Funniest Movies.
