Abandoned cinema 1962

At school we have a licence that allows us to show any film to students for no charge.
Thinking about extra-curricular activities, it would be great if kids understood what it was like to have to use dialup to connect to another computer (War Games), or how people viewed the internal workings of a computer (Tron).
I’m thinking about having a monthly #ictfilm screening and encouraging students to come along, bring some popcorn and gain a bit of ICT insight.
Throwing suggestions open to Twitter I got the following suggestions (in no particular order).
The Social Network
The Pirates of Silicon Valley
War Games 2
The Last Starfighter
Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
I’ve not seen all of those, and I’d have to check certificates (is there a way I can exempt the certificate with parental permission as it’s for education purposes, I wonder?).
Any other ideas?
