    There are big screens, and then there is the Garde Arts Center’s big screen.

    The performing arts center boasts a movie screen that is 41-by-25 feet. That’s old-school sized. And isn’t where you want to see movies like “Top Gun: Maverick” and “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever”?

    Well, you can during the 2023 Breezeline Cinema Series at the New London venue. It kicks off Thursday with a screening of “Elvis,” which just earned an Oscar nomination for best picure and for Austin Butler’s star-channeling performance as Elvis Presley. This weekend also features Jordan Peele’s latest scary/smart thriller, “Nope,” and the Irish drama “The Banshees of Inisherin,” another release that cleaned up at the Academy Award nominations.

    “Moonage Daydream,” described as a “cinematic odyssey” about David Bowie, and Cate Blanchett’s masterful, Oscar-nominated turn as a demanding maestro in “Tar” are also part of the weekend’s lineup.

    More movies will be announced, but a sampling of the films follows:

    Thursday: “Elvis,” 7:30 p.m.

    Friday: “Nope,” 7:30 p.m.
