Highlights for each day of the week

Tuesday, April 2
King Kong
Every generation tries to remake Kong, but none of the remakes comes within an iconic skyscraper of the original. With Fay Wray. (1933) 7:30 a.m., TCM

Thursday, April 4
How Green Was My Valley
John Ford’s film about the tribulations of a Welsh family beat out Citizen Kane and The Maltese Falcon for Best Picture at the 1942 Oscars. See if you’d vote likewise. (1941) 10 p.m., TCM

Friday, April 5
Poltergeist
Try to count how many times Craig T. Nelson and his haunted suburban family utter the name “Carol Anne” in this ’80s horror classic about a girl and her TV. (1982) 9:45 a.m., IFC
