I'm still hoping we can see The Last Man On Earth (1924) silent film with live music accompaniment. Or even Woman In The Moon.
Maybe one of the Dr Who movies too.

Nothing wrong with repeats but there are still a bunch of ones never shown. Hey we can get to Revenge Of The Creature now that we've had the original one shown.
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

Given the rather uninspiring titles on this list, Rollerball seems like it might be a good choice.

2019, at least, seems to have better options.

I like ROLLERBALL as an idea for next year.

The 1975 original is one of those movies that even Marathon old-timers probably think must have shown by now. It hasn't. I came close to nailing down a vintage 35mm print, but, that's another whole long story involving OJ Simpson of all people!

Would like to put a plug in for Green Slime, it's so bad everybody would have fun with it. Would like to see Midnight Special, I would rather have seen it than The Giant Papier Mache Boulder.
