Thinking Outside the Multiplex in Indiana: May 9

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 »

Do you read “Thinking Outside the Multiplex”?

My work schedule has gotten a lot busier over the past year to the point that I need to cut a few non-working hour activities. Writing “Thinking Outside the Multiplex” is one of the things that’s on the bubble. Should I continue with it or not? Please post a comment if you read the column.

The Lunchbox (2013)

From famine to feast as four foreign films and an American indie open in limited release and there’s a full slate of repertory screenings besides. My top recommendation is The Lunchbox. I saw it while I was in LA last month and can attest it’s wonderful- the best film I’ve seen so far this year. I’d see it again and try to take in several other movies this week if I didn’t have another trial starting Monday… and yes, that means the column is going on vacation again, but just for a couple of weeks this time.

The Face of Love (2014)

Four movies open on a single screen, two of them not at the KAC. Holdover Tim’s Vermeer (at the KAC) looks more interesting to me than any of the new movies but you may think differently. Read more »

Tim's Vermeer (2014)

Movies came and went while I was in LA for my trial, and pickings are a bit slim now that I’m back. I’m most interested in the indie drama Hide Your Smiling Faces on Thursday at the IMA’s Toby. Details and the rest of the listings after the break. Read more »

Barefoot (2014)

The column will be on hiatus the next few weeks while I’m in trial. This week see a great classic on the big screen: Tillie’s Punctured Romance is the penultimate silent comedy in the IMA’s Winter Nights series tonight and On the Waterfront has screenings at the AMC Indianapolis on Sunday and Wednesday.

How I Live Now (2014)

Two new limited releases this week, both sci-fi but otherwise- at least based on the summaries I found- having absolutely nothing in common. The British, dystopia-themed How I Live Now definitely sounds the more interesting between them. Read more »
