Walker Art Center
“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.
When one door closes, another opens, so they say. Wit that in mind, the Walker Art Center is offering free gallery admission for the next few weeks while they complete a construction project.
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.
“The Act of Killing” is perhaps one of the most assaultive and abrasive documentaries on the nature of violence ever made. Few films attempt anything so reckless and edifying. It is a queasy, unforgettable achievement.
Organizers of the annual international ArtPrize competition in Michigan say an Internet Cat Video Festival will be part of this year’s event. The free Sept. 27 showing at Rosa Parks Circle in downtown Grand Rapids is being put on by the Walker Art Center.
The Walker Art Center’s “Summer Music & Movies” event returns to Loring Park tonight – and it’s all for free.

Indoors and outdoors, Minnesota offers some of the best exhibits year-round.
A Minneapolis landmark is getting a fresh coat of paint. On Tuesday, workers started painting on the Spoonbridge and Cherry in the Walker Art Center’s Sculpture Garden.

Here are my choices for the best Twin Cities screenings for cinephiles this week.
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.
