BLUE LAGOON, MAN FROM LARAMIE & More Set for Sony Movie Channel's June Programming

This month's Oscar lineup includes Best Cinematography nominees THE Blue LAGOON (June 1), starring Brooke Shields, and HOPE AND GLORY (June 8); James Stewart in THE MAN FROM LARAMIE (June 15); Best Documentary nominee WINGED MIGRATION (June 22); and Ethan Hawke and Uma Thurman in the Best Art Direction nominee GATTACA (June 29).
Saddle up with dad on Sunday, June 15, for SMC's Father's Day Western Marathon at 8 a.m. ET. The showdown begins with SILVERADO, starring Kevin Costner and Kevin Kline; followed by old west favorites such as THEY CAME TO CORDURA, starring Gary Cooper and Rita Hayworth; Glenn Ford in THE VIOLENT MEN and THE MAN FROM COLORADO and more.
