But if you find yourself seeking relief from the sun (or getting drinks at patios or biking around the lakes), here’s what’s playing — and totally worth seeing — at local theaters.

The hits just keep coming. Upstream Color is being brought back for an encore run at the St. Anthony Main Theater on Friday, along with another pair of specialty draws. The Heights continues its dazzling Hollywood extravaganza. The Walker’s got a couple of can’t-miss arty attractions.

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.

The Twin Cities has no shortage of movie options this week. Seriously, dozens and dozens of films are screening at the international film festival in Minneapolis, and even if you’re not in the mood for foreign fare, there’s some really wonderful movies playing in local theaters.

Forget about the forecast. No, seriously. Pretend you didn’t just hear Mike Augustyniak toss out the possibility that parts of Minnesota could see up to a foot of snow later this week.

Spring is still beaucoup tardy to the party, so keep those board shorts on ice and head out to a local movie house to catch one of these off-the-beaten-path screening options this week.

Think you’re going to catch a fallow period for moviegoing on the eve of the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Film Festival next month? Think again.

I always say March is the roughest month for Minnesotans, as far as weather goes. Here you are, thinking you’ve made it through the long winter and expecting a period of one progressively warmer week after another.

Well, the snow is back once again, so for at least one more week you can expect to not be spending much time enjoying the great outdoors, unless you’ve got a pair of snowshoes. For everyone else, there’s always a heated movie theater.
