A League of Their Own (March 4) – Starring: Tom Hanks, Geena Davis, Madonna, Lori Petty, Jon Lovitz.

Norma Rae (March 11) – Starring: Sally Field, Ron Leibman, Beau Bridges, Pat Hingle, Barbara Baxley.  Based on the book Crystal Lee, A Woman of Inheritance, the film follows Norma Rae, a factory worker from a small town in North Carolina who becomes involved in unionizing activities at the textile factory where she works after her and her co-workers’ health is compromised due to poor working conditions. (1979, 117 minutes, Color)

Frida (March 18) – Starring: Salma Hayek, Alfred Molina, Geoffrey Rush, Valeria Golino. Biopic of the bold and controversial life of artist Frida Kahlo.

Kernodle, Terri Lyne Carrington, Viola Smith. The award-winning documentary film tells the poignant, untold stories of female jazz and big band instrumentalists and their fascinating, history-making journeys from the late 30s to the present day. The many first-hand accounts of the challenges faced by these talented women provide a glimpse into decades of racism and sexism that have existed in America. (2013, 87 minutes, Color)
