Still from "The Matrix" (1999) Warner Bros.

Need a little help getting the in the summer mood? CALS Ron Robinson Theater — where May film screenings include such school’s-out teen classics as “Dazed and Confused” and “American Graffiti” — is happy to oblige.

The rest of the lineup for May is less explicitly balmy, but I’d argue that “Footloose” and “Spaceballs“ both have a way of honoring summertime lawlessness, albeit for entirely different reasons. Also on the always-eclectic docket of picks are “The Matrix,“ which might be the most big screen-friendly option this month, and the unintentionally campy “Mommie Dearest,“ which may or may not be one of the worst films of all time.
