This summer, one movie theater is making it easier to relive that childhood summer.

Starting in June, Studio Movie Grill in the EpiCentre Uptown will screen hits from the 1980s and ’90s in its Retro Family Series Rewind, Girls Night Out and Brews and Views series.

Michael Bugler, Studio Movie Grill general manager, said the theater has always tried to embrace the connection between its audiences and the stories that the movies tell. He hopes these movies will continue to solidify that goal.

“It gives the opportunity for our guests to relive that connection if they had a great experience with a specific movie,” Bugler said. “We try to bring those movies back to really recreate that impact and recreate that emotion.”

• “A Few Good Men,” June 14 . Based on the play by Aaron Sorkin, this 1991 movie adaptation revolves around the court martial of two Marines who were charged with the murder of a fellow Marine.

• “Dirty Dancing,” June 11 . While spending her summer at a camp with her family, Frances “Baby” Houseman falls in love with the camp’s dance instructor in this 1987 film.

• “Big,” June 18. In this 1988 movie starring Tom Hanks, Josh, a 13-year-old from New Jersey, just wants to be an adult. When he wishes to be “big” at a magic wish machine, Josh is surprised to wake up the next morning as an adult.
