“Paddington 2” and “Goodbye Columbus” will be screened at the Remarkable Drive-In this week.

WESTPORT — A marmalade-loving animated bear winds up in jail and the changing conventions of class and sex in the late-1960s undermine romance — very different themes are showcased in two movies scheduled this coming week at the Remarkable Drive-In.

“Paddington 2” is set for the big screen Monday and “Goodbye Columbus” will be shown Wednesday.

Ticket proceeds benefit the Remarkable Theater’s goal of opening a nonprofit movie theater in downtown Westport that will employ people with disabilities.

The drive-in screen is located in the parking lot at 50 Imperial Ave.

Tickets can be purchased at the Remarkable Theater’s website here.

Featured films

“Paddington 2,” Monday, Aug. 8:  This second movie adaptation of the Paddington Bear stories finds the animated hero in a bit of “jam” (or is it marmalade?) that unjustly lands him in the slammer. The live-action comedy follows efforts by Paddington and his family to prove his innocence.

Paddington is voiced by Ben Winshaw and human co-stars include High Grant, Hugh Bonneville, Julie Walters, Brendan Gleeson and Jim Broadbent. 

The 2017 film, rated PG, will be shown at 8 p.m., doors open at 7 o’clock.

“Goodbye, Columbus,” Wednesday, Aug.10: Based on a Philip Roth novella, the 1969 film explores a budding romance that unravels as evolving issues of class and sexuality drive apart the young couple.

The cast is led by Richard Benjamin, Ali MacGraw, Jack Klugman and Nan Martin.

The movie, rated PG, will be screened at 8:15 p.m., doors open an hour earlier.
