The Colonial Theatre’s Centennial Celebration free movies series continues in July, which will feature films from the 1960s. Show times will shift to late Sunday afternoons, July 15 and 22 at the downtown cinema.

On Sunday, July 15 the series will offer “Cool Hand Luke” from 1967, which runs two hours and five minutes, at 4:15 p.m. The deep-south prison drama features Oscar-for-this-role- George Kennedy, Newman, hard-boiled eggs and the class line, “what we have here is a failure to communicate.” “Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?” from 1967, running one hour and 50 minutes, will start at 4:30 p.m. Daring for the era, the film still offers poignant and powerful commentary on race relations. Sidney Poitier stars with Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy in the couple’s last film together.

On Sunday, July 22 the series will screen “Goldfinger” from 1964, which runs an hour and 50 minutes, at 4:15 p.m. Called the best 007 flick ever, “Goldfinger” stars Sean Connery as James Bond, Honor Blackman as Pussy Galore, the golden girl and a fabulous theme song belted by Shirley Bassey. At 4:30 p.m., the Colonial will offer “The Graduate” from 1967, running an hour and 45 minutes. The benchmark coming-of-age comedy boasts ahead-of-its-time direction by Mike Nichols, a groovy Simon & Garfunkel soundtrack, Dustin Hoffmann and Anne Bancroft and one word — “plastics!”
