A Night at the Movies

Dear Colleagues:
 
I'm putting a program together called "A Night at the Movies".  Looking for solid "non cheesy" arrangements of songs to fill the concert.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.
 
Best,

Jason:
Here are a number of pieces.  I don't know what your groups are or their levels, but I've used these in the past for the same theme.  Even if these arrangements don't work exactly, maybe there are some ideas for songs. . .
 
Good luck,

Follow Up Question. I love the choral arrangement of "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic. But all this time, I've been thinking that it's so overplayed that the mere mention of the title will cause audience and singers alike to cringe. Has enough time passed that we can safely perform that song again?
