When Cinderella's cruel stepmother prevents her from attending the Royal Ball, she gets some unexpected help from lovable mice Gus and Jaq, and her Fairy Godmother. After the unsuccessful releases of Bambi, Fantasia, and Pinocchio (all of which would achieve box office success when reissued), Cinderella was a commercial gamble for Disney that paid off mightily giving the studio its first big hit since Snow White and the Seven Dwarves. Free for Notre Dame students and kids 12 and under.

Directed by Jayne Loader, Kevin Rafferty and Pierce Rafferty
Not Rated, 88 minutes, 35mm
One of the defining documentaries of the 20th century, The Atomic Cafe offers a darkly humorous glimpse into mid-century America, an era rife with paranoia, anxiety, and misapprehension. Narrated through an astonishing array of vintage clips and music, from military training films to campy advertisements, presidential speeches to pop songs, the film centers on the threat (and thrill) of the newly-minted atomic bomb. Free for Notre Dame students.
