      The bearded-hipster image of Brooklyn has gone so global, it’s almost miraculous that a film would succeed in making the borough seem exotic again—by reaching back to its blue-collar Dodgers-loving past. That’s one of the many feats of Irish direc...

      Zoolander fans can breathe a flamboyant sigh of relief: 15 years later, this sequel to the 2001 fashion-world satire is as funny, silly and lovingly teasing as anyone could have hoped. Ben Stiller and Owen Wilson return as dopey male models Derek ...

      As we’ve seen with #OscarsSoWhite, Hollywood is slow to change. Right now, rom-coms are going cold-turkey off Jane Austen’s 19th-century happy-ever-after plotlines and wrapping their heads around the brave new world of Lena Dunham. As modern dati...

      It couldn’t have been easy for the Coens to just be silly again, especially after such recent soulful triumphs like Inside Llewyn Davis (2013) and A Serious Man (2009). God love ’em for insisting on it: Hail, Caesar! weds the backstage Hollywood s...

      Michael Moore, still the baseball-hatted icon of lefty discontent (if looking schlumpier 26 years after Roger & Me), delivers his latest documentary provocation, which refreshingly turns out to be one of his more hopeful and celebratory efforts. O...

      After the playful, urban and contemporary vibe of Birdman, this bleak 1820s-set Western sees Mexican filmmaker Alejandro González Iñárritu return to the darker worldview of his earlier films like Babel and 21 Grams. Based on a 2002 Michael Punke n...

      "This is Boston," says Stanley Tucci’s seen-it-all victims’ lawyer to a reporter in Spotlight, echoing that famous last line from Chinatown: "Forget it, Jake—it’s Chinatown." But forgetting isn’t an option sometimes. Spotlight calmly and powerfull...

    This chain theater has all the heart of an indie theater:

    -Fantastic customer service: your chronically late friends won’t make you miss the trailers again.  The ticket taker will gladly hold onto their ticket and let them in when they arrive so you can go in.
    -Comfortable seating: wide leather seats with armrests that pull up
    -Assigned seating: when you purchase your tix you pick exactly which comfy leather seats you want
    -Excellent coffee
    -Alternative programming like midnight classics
    -All shows before noon are $8
