CASABLANCA (1942)

Winner of three Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, and Best Writing - Screenplay)

A timeless classic that’s still regarded as one of the most romantic love stories of all time, Michael Curtiz’s unforgettable portrait of a cynical American bar owner and the French ex-lover who broke his heart remains as sweepingly magnificent as ever.

GONE WITH THE WIND (1939)

Winner of eight Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Supporting Role, Best Film Editing, Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography - Colour, Best Writing - Screenplay)

A staggering piece of cinema that would broaden the very idea of what a film could be and do and look like, Victor Fleming’s period war epic was moviemaking at its very height. A monumental production that can still enthral new generations of viewers, it remains one of Hollywood’s greatest achievements.

THE SILENCE OF THE LAMBS (1991)

Winner of five Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor in a Leading Role, Best Actress in a Leading Role, and Best Writing - Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published)

One of only three films to win the Academy’s “Big Five” prizes, Jonathan Demme’s iconic psychological horror broke all preconceived notions of what constituted a Best Picture winner. Oscar winners Anthony Hopkins and Jodie Foster deliver legendary performances in this chilling yet eloquent master thriller.

LAWRENCE OF ARABIA (1962)

Winner of seven Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Cinematography - Colour, Best Art Direction-Set Decoration- Colour, Best Sound, Best Film Editing, Best Music, Score - Substantially Original)

David Lean’s sweeping biopic of enigmatic British archaeologist T.E. Lawrence still remains one of the grandest motion pictures in the history of cinema. Led by a marvellous performance from Peter O’Toole and featuring astonishing cinematography by Freddie Young, it’s a must-see on the big screen.

THE DEER HUNTER (1978)

Winner of five Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Supporting Actor, Best Sound, and Best Film Editing)

Starring Academy Award winners Robert de Niro, Christopher Walken, and Meryl Streep, experience the brutality of war and the depths of emotional strain on the human spirit in this extraordinarily powerful drama that follows a group of Pennsylvania steelworkers from their blue-collar lives to the depths of hell in Southeast Asia during the Vietnam War.

ON THE WATERFRONT (1954)

Winner of eight Academy Awards (Best Motion Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Supporting Actress, Best Story and Screenplay, Best Art Direction – Black-and-White, Best Cinematography – Black-and-White, and Best Film Editing)

Two-time Academy Award winner Marlon Brando gives one of the screen's most electrifying performances in master filmmaker Eliza Kazan’s unforgettable drama centred on one man’s quest for redemption on the gang-ridden waterfront dockside of New Jersey.

PARASITE (2019)

Winner of four Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best International Feature)

A groundbreaking masterpiece that made history as the first film not in the English language to win Best Picture, Bong Joon Ho’s meticulously crafted critique of class warfare is filled with suspense, satire, and groundbreaking storytelling in what stands as one of the most critically acclaimed films of the 21st century.

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO’S NEST (1975)

Winner of five Academy Awards (Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, Best Actress, and Best Writing - Screenplay Adapted From Other Material)

Another of the three films to win the “Big Five” major Oscar categories, Miloš Forman’s electrifying adaptation of Ken Kesey's acclaimed best seller novel is raucous, moving, and features unforgettable Oscar-winning performances from Jack Nicholson and the late Louise Fletcher.
