It’s the full moon on July 27 and to celebrate The Varsity will show the romantic classic “Moonstruck.”
In her Oscar-winning role, Cher plays Loretta Castorini, an Italian-American widow and bookkeeper whose timid fiancé can’t decide between her and his mother. Against her better judgement, Loretta falls in love with her fiancé’s estranged brother (Nicolas Cage), a bakery worker with a love of opera and life. Supporting actress Olympia Dukakis and screenwriter John Patrick Shanley also won Oscars in this comedy classic.
