Owls Head Transportation Museum (OHTM) will showcase timeless transportation topics with movie screenings and insight from industry experts each month as part of its Reels & Wheels series. The schedule is as follows:

• Saturday, January 19, at 6 p.m., “The World’s Fastest Indian,” a biographical sports drama starring Anthony Hopkins as a lifelong motorcycle fanatic from New Zealand who dreams of doing something really big and really fast, but can his dreams come true on a 47-year-old machine?

• Saturday, February 16, at 3 and 6 p.m., a double feature, with “The Great Waldo Pepper,” a tale of a traveling aviator who begins an unlikely friendship that changes two lives forever, and “The Aviator,” an epic-scale biopic that documents one of the 20th century’s most prolific dreamers.

• Saturday, March 16, at 6 p.m., “Up to Speed: Auto Racing in Hollywood” — in this detour from the series’ usual format, OHTM will show the film industry’s most famous and infamous auto racing scenes and a panel of industry experts will deconstruct each clip and separate myth from reality.

• Saturday, April 20, at 3 p.m., “Chitty Chitty Bang Bang,” a family-friendly classic that Roger Ebert described as “the best two-hour children’s movie you could hope for,” about a down-on-his-luck inventor who turns a pedigreed jalopy into a magical machine fit for gravity-defying adventures in a far-off land.

• Saturday, May 18, at 6 p.m., Francis Ford Coppola’s “Tucker: The Man and His Dream,” a biographical drama about a tenacious entrepreneur whose tireless quest to build a modern car for the masses is stalled by America’s competitive postwar automobile industry.

Tickets are free to members, $5 for adults, and no charge for ages 18 and under.
