    General Admission $6.00

    Goldfinger (1964, MGM/UA, 112 min) Director Guy Hamilton. 007 (Sean Connery) is at it again – this time fighting international bullion dealer Auric Goldfinger (Gert Frobe), the man with the Midas touch. Goldfinger is one villain you don’t want to mess with, especially because his quirky sidekick Oddjob kills women by painting their entire bodies gold. With Fort Knox and entire national economies at stake, Bond must defeat the villain’s Operation Grand Slam. Ken Adam’s production design, with its impossible gadgets and diabolically huge, coiled lasers, sets the scene for Connery’s over-the-top performance and his dry throwaway lines.
