Update:
Here is the list as of Christmas.

> Jupiter Ascending (2015, 35mm)
> They Live (1988, 35mm)
> Space Jam (1996, 35mm)
> Upgrade (2018, DCP)
> Timecrimes (2007, 35mm)
> Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind (1984, 35mm)
> Gremlins (1984, 35mm)
> Frankenstein (1910, Digital)
> Wallace & Gromit x3 (1989-1995, Digital)

Given their usual pattern, this will be about half of their final hodge podge.
Due to the inevitable heat death of the universe, they, like all festivals,  usually have one or two last minute substitutions.

Start Time      Title
Friday, January 18
8:00pm      Jupiter Ascending (2015,PG-13,35mm)
TBD      † †† †† They Live (1988,R,35mm)
Saturday, January 19
12:30am†  SURPRISE 1 (????,PG-13,Digital)
TBD      † †† †† Wallace & Gromit - A Close Shave (1995,NR)

TBD      † †† †† Demolition Man (1993,R,35mm)
TBD      † †† †† Space Jam (1996,PG,35mm)
12:10pm† †Upgrade (2018,R,DCP)
TBD      † †† †† Wallace & Gromit - A Grand Day Out (1989,NR)

TBD      † †† †† SURPRISE 3 (????,NR,35mm)
6:20pm† ††  Nausicaš of the Valley of the Wind (1984,PG,35mm)
TBD      † †† †† A Quiet Place (2018,PG-13,DCP)
TBD      † †† †† Wallace & Gromit - The Wrong Trousers (1993,NR)
TBD      † †† ††  Frankenstein (1910,NR)
11:20pm† † Gremlins (1984,PG,35mm)

Times are approximate as there is no hard end time and accidents happen. Like all marathons, Cleveland always throws in a few additional cartoons, previews (usually teasers for the later surprises) and other odd junk. As compared to Columbus and Boston, the shorts are pretty consistently crap.† With few exceptions (the director of the film society† got married on stage one year, they had a lottery where the winner got to put on Godzilla boots and stomp a stage wide model of the city) Cleveland does not do events, giveaways, contests or random events during the show.

They now have a $4 per movie option for persons who opt out of the full program.

I notice Wallace and Gromit are playing. I think A Grand Day Out would be a great fit for Boston.

The surprises were:
The Wild, Wild, West(A lot more fun than I remembered)
The Nutty Professor (Why Oh Why???) and
The Omega Man (I love classics, but this one was pretty dated, even for my taste.)

Attendance was a little down. As usual, the event was well run with no glitches, except for a humongous snowstorm that started half way through. No contests, events, or weddings during the show. Wallace & Gromit shorts were a nice change of pace in what was overall (for me) an extremely violent program.
