Sit beside Steve Martin for a screening of "The Jerk," share a theater with Mike Myers for a showing of "Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery" or squirm in your seat alongside Jodie Foster during "The Silence of the Lambs."
These stars _ along with Dustin Hoffman, Cameron Diaz, Denzel Washington, Annette Bening, Jim Carrey, Shirley MacLaine, Rita Moreno and Keanu Reeves _ will share some of their most famous films with their fans next month at "Target Presents AFI Night at the Movies."
The one-night-only event is set to take over the ArcLight theater in Hollywood on Oct. 1, the American Film Institute announced Wednesday. The idea is to bring filmmakers and fans together to celebrate American movies, said AFI chief Bob Gazzale.
"It is a fireworks show of American film," he said, "and AFI's honor to celebrate the artists and their contributions to the rich cultural legacy of our nation."
Tickets are $25 and will be available beginning Sept. 17.

_ Connery, "The Man Who Would Be King.
