A couple editions still are coming up during the month of May in the Thursday Night Movies series at Stardust Theatre, 14401 R.H. Johnson Blvd., including the Oscar-winning “Green Book” at 7 p.m. Thursday, May 16, but the theatre also has announced its June schedule for flicks.

June 6 – “The Post”

Oscar winners Steven Spielberg, Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks team up for the first time in this thrilling film based on a true story. Determined to uphold the nation’s civil liberties, Katharine Graham (Streep), publisher of The Washington Post, and hard-nosed editor Ben Bradlee (Hanks) join forces to expose a decades-long cover-up. But the two must risk their careers – and their freedom – to bring truth to light in this powerful film with a celebrated cast. (C) (2017) (1hr 56m) (PG-13 For Some Language).

June 13 – “My Sister’s Keeper”

Abigail Breslin stars as Anna, a 13-year-old girl who was conceived by IVF in order to be a genetic match for her older sister, Kate, who has battled leukemia since childhood. Despite being a normal, healthy child, Anna has undergone countless surgeries, transfusions and injections for the sake of her sister’s health. Now, when she must forgo the opportunity to go to a prestigious hockey camp in order to donate a kidney to her sister who has gone into renal failure, Anna decides that enough is enough and sues her parents (Cameron Diaz and Jason Patric) for medical emancipation. (C) (2009) (1H 49M) (PG-13).

June 20 – “The Devil Wears Prada”

Based on the best-selling novel, this sinfully funny movie stars Oscar winners Meryl Streep and Anne Hathaway. As assistant to fashion magazine editor Miranda Priestly (Streep), young Andy Sachs (Hathaway) has landed a “job to die for” – a job that might, in fact, be the death of her! (C) (2006) (1H 49M) (PG-13).

June 27 – “Little Big Man”

In this sweeping epic that swings from high comedy to drama, Oscar-winner Dustin Hoffman gives a “virtuoso performance” as the 121-year-old sole survivor of Custer’s Last Stand. Narrating his colorful life story, he tells about everything from his adoption by Cheyenne Indians to his marriages and his friendship with Wild Bill Hickok. His tall tales indicate he just may be one of the biggest liars who roamed the West. Co-starring Faye Dunaway, Chief Dan George, Martin Balsam and Richard Mulligan. (C) (1970) (2H 19M) (PG-13).
