MOVIES: Blasts from the past

  Southern Nevada’s newest multiplex returns moviegoers to those thrilling days of yesteryear with a lineup of "Flashback Features" offering $5 revivals of some vintage favorites, featuring the adventures of everybody from Butch and Sundance to Robin Hood.
  Starting next Tuesday night, Aliante Station’s Regal Cinemas multiplex will host the series.
  The 40th (!) anniversary of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," starring Paul Newman and Robert Redford, begins the big-screen flashback Jan. 20.
  On Jan. 27, it’s time to play it again with 1942’s "Casablanca," starring Humphrey Bogart and Ingrid Bergman (the one title in the series in glorious black-and-white).
  On Feb. 3, 1938’s "The Adventures of Robin Hood" features Hollywood’s most legendary swashbuckler, Errol Flynn, with Olivia deHavilland as Maid Marian, Basil Rathbone as the nasty Sheriff of  Nottingham and "Casablanca’s" Claude Rains as Prince John. (Not so coincidentally, the same director called the shots on both "Robin Hood" and "Casablanca" — Michael Curtiz.)
  Rounding out the quartet: the 45th (!) anniversary of "Viva Las Vegas," with Elvis Presley and Ann-Margret, directed by late Las Vegan George Sidney. All together now: "Bright light city gonna set my soul, gonna set my soul on fire …"
  The one-night-only presentations begin at 6:30 p.m. Save me an aisle seat …
