Lucky Them (2014)

The manager at the State Museum’s IMAX theater seems to have an in with IFC films because they’ve got two new indie dramas opening there, albeit for short runs; one this weekend and one next (but starting this coming Thursday). Do a lot of people take extra vacation around the 4th? There’s a number of other new and holdover titles covering a range of interests, plus a Heartland mini-fest and the usual weekly repertory screenings. Read more »

God's Pocket (2014)

Another strong week at the Keystone Art Cinema with three interesting new releases joining several arthouse holdovers. More than any of the week’s new movies I’m excited for the chance to see Spartacus on the big screen.

Only Lovers Left Alive (2014)

Welcome to the new, slightly slimmed down TOTM in IN. Something had to give so I’ve decided to focus on what interests me, namely movies in movie theaters. Screenings in movie theaters and theater-like venues like auditoriums are in. Folding chair venues (e.g., pop-up cinema, outdoor screenings) and movie-related events are out.

Options are good this week thanks to the Keystone Art Cinema- the Landmark being in one of its occasional, highly welcome all-arthouse periods- and a varied lineup of repertory screenings. Read more »
