Classic Movie Club: Airplane! (1980)

December 15, 2023 @ 4:00 pm


Bi-monthly screenings on Friday afternoons of award-winning films shown on a giant screen in high definition using only restored and remastered Blu-ray discs.

On Friday, December 15, 2023, at 4:00 pm in the Santa Rosa Clubhouse’s Monterey Room, the club will present:

AIRPLANE! – the 1980 smash hit comedy written and directed by the brothers David and Jerry Zucker, and Jim Abrahams. It stars Robert Hays and Julie Hagerty, and features Leslie Nielsen, Robert Stack, Lloyd Bridges, Peter Graves, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. Airplane! is a satire of the disaster film genre, and it parodies many elements from Airport 1975 and other films in the 1970s Airport series. This film was a huge critical and commercial success, grossing $271 million worldwide against a budget of $3.5 million. Its creators received the Writers Guild of America Award for Best Adapted Comedy, and the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture Comedy. In 2010, it was selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry by the Library of Congress as being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant". Critics and film historians have regarded Airplane! as the funniest comedy of all time!

Club membership is not required to attend our free screenings. For additional information, contact hosts Josh Kanin (310-980-0747) or Bill Hooper (310-293-9597)
