This Week’s Best Bets
Thanksgiving gives you the chance to reflect and reminisce. In that vein, here are four beloved movie options around town this week to ignite the warming bug of nostalgia … and one unforgettable turkey.
We are in the 100 percent thick of the year-end prestige madness. Already, I’ve been carted off to the snake pit twice this month over the sheer number of long-deferred must-see titles that are suddenly and simultaneously available. The mind boggles, but the cinephile rejoices.
This week sees the start of both the latest Sound Unseen, one of the most highly-anticipated annual events of the Twin Cities film and music scenes, as well as the astonishingly comprehensive Images of Africa festival at St. Anthony Main.
I’ve been informed that many if not all of the screenings of “12 Years a Slave” at the Uptown Theatre were sold out this weekend, so I guess the first thing that should be on your movie checklist for the coming week would be that, if you weren’t among the lucky ones to snag a ticket.
Halloween weekend elect is upon us. So don’t even pretend you want to see anything other than blood, bones, gore and mayhem. Here are the best options for repertory and limited-release entertainment this week.
Thirty-one days of horror continue this week, with a couple irresistible Halloween-friendly titles screening in local repertory houses. But it’s not all ghost, goblins and electrically-charged prototypes for Marge Simpson’s hairstyle.
If you’re searching for something a little smaller-scale or niche than “Gravity” (which you should still totally see if you haven’t already, because it’s easily one of the year’s greatest movies), here are this week’s other best movie bets around town.
If you’re anything like me (and God help you if you are), you’re looking forward to the arrival of this Tuesday like Clark W. Griswold looks forward to the fourth Sunday before Christmas, like Jennie-O looks forward to the week before Thanksgiving.
With “Prisoners” last week, “Rush” and “Enough Said” this week and “Gravity” next week, we’re definitely in the full thick of the fall moviegoing season. But if you look beyond the high-profile, you’ll find just as much waiting out there in limited release.
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.
First off, you know you have to celebrate the arrival of Friday the 13th this week by checking out the Friday the 13th and Friday the 13th Part 2 double feature at the Parkway Theater […]
New releases are a little thin for the next few weeks, and on the whole, the month of September is traditionally one of the least well-stocked of the year. What better time than now to get reacquainted with some of the best limited release theaters in the area?
Just because the State Fair is up and running doesn’t mean you shouldn’t check out some of the best screening options out there. This may go down as one of the most blisteringly, stiflingly hot fairs ever — you might just need no excuse to duck into a darkened theater.
“The Butler” scored a #1 berth in its debut week in theaters, which means the summer movie season is more or less officially over. In that vein, there’s a bunch of serious (and seriously humorous) screening options around town this week.
You know how it goes when you get back from vacation … you have twice as much on your plate as you did when you left. The maxim holds true for movies as well.
