Oscar, 1991 – PG, 1hr 49m (begins at 4pm)
Angelo “Snaps” Provolone (Sylvester Stallone) made his dying father a promise on his deathbed: he would leave the world of crime and become an honest businessman. Despite having no experience in making money in a legal fashion, Snaps sets about to keep his promise. He is faced with numerous problems: henchmen who know nothing but crime, the police who are convinced he is hatching a master plan, and Oscar, who just got his daughter Lisa (Marisa Tome) pregnant.
Blame it on the Bellboy, 1992 – PG-13, 1hr 18m (begins at 6pm)
Mike Lawton (Bryan Brown), a hitman; Maurice Horton (Richard Griffiths), a middle aged man looking to utilize an escort service; and Melvyn Orton (Dudley Moore), a corporate properties manager; converge on the Hotel Gabrielli in Venice, Italy. Linguistic mix-ups by the staff mean each of the trio get wrong instructions for the next day. Maurice meets up with puzzled estate agent Caroline Wright (Patsy Kensit), Melvyn attempts to make a gang of hoods an offer they can’t refuse on their villa, while Mike sets off to rub out a lonely-hearts lady from Huddersfield.
