The AMC Kabuki 8 took over the Sundance Kabuki a few years ago but the multiplex still has most of the hallmarks that made its predecessor the city’s best movie theater: reserved seating, dine-in options and 21+ shows where alcohol is permitted. Though their movies skew more towards big-budget Hollywood films than they used to, comfortable seats and intimate screening rooms—some with shared tables—make the Kabuki an ideal place to catch the newest release. One welcome change? Order food like southern style chicken tenders or ultimate nachos before finding your seat and they’ll deliver it to you when it’s ready.

    As unicorn-rare as studio political comedies are, it’s tempting to give the aptly titled Long Shot a pass, until you realize it’s not saying much of anything. The setup has a topicality that already feels a few years outdated: Bob Odenkirk plays a...

    Review by Joshua Rothkopf Save it, Generation John Hughes (yes, this is a self-own): One day, a post-apocalyptic band of hardy survivors will remember today’s high-school movies and scowl at the riches. Some of those films were good enough to lan...
