Nominated for six Academy Awards and winner of three Oscars, director Norman Jewison’s MOONSTRUCK is one of the most revered and beloved comedies of all-time. After Loretta (Cher) accepts a marriage proposal from the doting but doltish Johnny, played by the ever-amazing Danny Aiello, she begins to fall for his younger brother, Ronny (an incendiary Nic Cage). MOONSTRUCK has everything: a bread-baking Nicolas Cage without a hand, Olympia Dukakis rolling her eyes at suitors, and Cher giving one of the best slaps in cinema history. Fall in love all over again at the Capitol Theater!
Dir: Norman Jewison / 1987 / US / 102 min

“Norman Jewison’s tiramisu-sweet romantic comedy is passionate and profound.” – Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
“You will not easily forget this incredibly robust family.” – Gene Siskel, Chicago Tribune
