Thinking Outside the Multiplex in Indiana: June 27

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 »

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. Read more »

Words and Pictures (2014)

I’m way too busy with work again to make it out to the theater so I’ll give the pick of the week over to my friend Gary, who I know will be excited about For No Good Reason, the documentary about Gonzo artist Ralph Steadman that’s opening at the Keystone Art Cinema. Read more »

The Immigrant (2014)

Belle and The Railway Man expand to a couple more screens around town while three new movies open at the Keystone Art. Music lovers should take note that a new documentary about BB King has two mid-week shows at the Studio Movie Grill. And on another note, no column next week while I’m in trial. 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. It’s this week’s “AMC Classics” selection- and unlike many of the titles that screen in that series, an indisputable classic. Read more »

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.
