Coming March 1
The Apartment (1960)
Hollywood’s second-most-famous spaghetti scene (after Lady and the Tramp) involves Jack Lemmon using a tennis racket to strain noodles while trying to impress a carefree young woman (Shirley MacLaine). This Billy Wilder comedy still has the power to charm.

Barefoot in the Park (1967)
Jane Fonda and Robert Redford, both impossibly young, glisten as newlyweds living in a fifth-story walk-up in 1960s New York City in this charming romantic comedy based on Neil Simon’s play, inspired by his memories of his beloved first wife, Joan, who died at 41.
Paths of Glory (1957)
Stanley Kubrick’s grim and divisive antiwar movie — produced seven years before his Cold War satire Dr. Strangelove — stars Kirk Douglas as a French colonel in World War I who defends his troops in a court-martial trial after they refuse a suicide mission ordered by commanders.
Rocky saga (1976–2018)
Just in time for Michael B. Jordan’s return to the ring in Creed III, you can do a marathon binge-watch of the eight previous films in the franchise — starting with the 1976 original, which nabbed three Oscars, including best picture, and made a star of Sylvester Stallone.
