Thinking Outside the Multiplex in Indiana: June 13

by HELEN GEIB

The Grand Seduction (2014)

I have yet another trial starting Monday but when it’s over I plan to take in The Grand Seduction, which starts today at the Keystone Art Cinema. That’s the only new release this week though there are a few holdovers and nostalgia type repertory screenings to fill out the schedule.

Note: Theaters and other venues are Indianapolis except where otherwise noted. For trailers, cast and crew, and suchlike follow the title link to the movie’s official website. For more information on venues, follow the links under “Outside the Multiplex” in the sidebar.

OPENING THIS WEEK IN LIMITED RELEASE

The Grand Seduction– This charming looking comedy, set and filmed in a fishing village in Newfoundland, stars Brendan Gleeson as a mayor trying every stratagem he can think of to recruit a desperately needed town doctor (Taylor Kitsch). Landmark Keystone Art Cinema

THEATRICAL HOLDOVERS

Belle– From the Landmark’s website: “Belle is inspired by the true story of Dido Elizabeth Belle (Gugu Mbatha-Raw), the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode). Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing. After meeting an idealistic young vicar’s son bent on changing society, he and Belle help shape Lord Mansfield’s role as Lord Chief Justice to end slavery in England.” Landmark Keystone Art Cinema

Holiday– Bollywood thriller starring Akshay Kumar. Co-starring Sonakshi Sinha. AMC Castleton Square

Words and Pictures– From the Landmark’s website: “In this witty romantic drama, a prep school English teacher (Clive Owen), lamenting his students’ obsession with social media and good grades rather than engaging with the power of the written word, declares a war between Words and Pictures, sparring with an abstract painter and new teacher on campus (Juliette Binoche).” AMC Indianapolis, Landmark Keystone Art Cinema

FESTIVALS AND REPERTORY SCREENINGS

The movie this weekend at the historic Artcraft Theatre in Franklin is Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. Showtimes 2 and 8 Friday and Saturday; the evening shows come with pre-show entertainment starting at 7:30. Tickets are $5 for adults and go down from there for serving military, seniors, students, and children.

    @Ken: Thanks! It’s a one week bench trial and the lead attorney is great to work with, so I’m feeling more relaxed than usual, but it still means no movies until it’s over. :-)

    There is one other new limited-release movie this week, the drama Alone Yet Not Alone, showing at the Regal Greenwood Stadium 14. Supposedly, it is on about 200 screens across the country, following a test release last fall. And as far as I know, this is the first time this theater has opened a movie not showing anywhere else in the area.

    For the record, four movies opened on a limited number of screens in the Indianapolis area on June 20:

    The Rover, with Guy Pearce and Robert Pattinson, is at the Keystone Art Cinema, the AMC Castleton Square 14, the AMC Indianapolis 17, and the Hamilton 16 and IMAX in Noblesville.

    Humshakals, a Bollywood comedy, is at the AMC Castleton Square 14 and the UA Galaxy 14.

    The Signal, a science-fiction “thriller” (per the IMDb) with Brandon Thwaites and Laurence Fishburne, is at the AMC Indianapolis 17.

    How Old Are You, a Malayalam-language drama from India, is at the Cinemark Movies 8 in Greenwood- and the page for the film on Cinemark’s site says it has English subtitles.

    And the documentary Penton: The John Penton Story will be get a one-time-only screening by way of Gathr at the Studio Movie Grill on Monday night at 7:30. Since it is a Gathr screening, I believe tickets must be purchased through their site, and not at the theater itself.
