This week’s list of the best screenings around town features at least a couple movies I’m not very fond of, actually. I hope that you take this as a mark of my own possibly hopeless attempts to remain objective about what people might consider the “best bets.”
Too often I tie your decision on whether or not you should catch a limited-release or repertory screening in the Twin Cities based solely on the weather. For much of the last year or two, that’s been a winning bet on my part, with two endless winters and stifling summers.
I’ll give you five good reasons to check out a movie this week. I’m not talking about the titles I mention below. I’m talking about the cold and/or cloudy weather predicted for Monday through Friday this week.
There’s only one major movie release set to storm multiplexes this coming weekend — The Amazing Spider-Man 2 — and there’s a lot of rain and sleet in the 7-day forecast, so don’t even pretend you don’t want to hole up and catch some offbeat movie selections this week.
Here are five of the best indie theaters in Minnesota, the only place where one can catch the best of the past and the most creative of the new.
I bet you thought I was going to issue a postmortem on the 2014 Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, right? After all, Saturday night was the closing night. Oh, no.

This week’s collection of movie best bets is a bit hastier than normal because, duh, you should be first and foremost checking out our daily selections from the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival.

With both a rude jolt and a surge of excitement, film fans in the Twin Cities find themselves on the cusp of this year’s Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival, which opens on Thursday with a screening of Belle and continues for 17 days with more than 200 features.
Now that the long Oscar season nightmare is finally over, it’s time to sing “Auld Lang Syne” and enjoy the best of what’s playing locally. And let me tell you, the floodgates are open, first and foremost not one but two foreign film festivals.
If you’ve already had your fill of bad luck as of late, then maybe one of these other five suggestions might bring you some good fortune. One of them is at least sure to provide your bare walls with some attractive covering.
Quite a few new interesting new offerings are seeing full release over the next week or two. Here is a list of some of the best limited release options you’ll want to check out this week.
As summer starts to enter its final stretch, it’s probably time to consider kissing endless weeks of disposable entertainment adieu in favor of more substantial cinematic offerings.
We’re rapidly approaching the summer solstice. I’d like to hope that means there will be a lot of outdoor patio cocktails with people fanning themselves to beat the heat, but let’s be honest. This year is no normal year.
Here are my choices for the best Twin Cities screenings for cinephiles this week.
There’s something wicked in the air. Nearly all of my suggested best bets for Twin Cities film fans are either horror movies or arty interpolations of horror tropes or dissertations on the variety to be found within the genre.
