22 Jump Street
(2014; 110 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, November 20 at 7:00 p.m.
"A hugely enjoyable shambles. It’s a comic deconstruction of that most useless of Hollywood artifacts — the blockbuster sequel — that refuses to take itself seriously on any level." - Boston Globe
A Most Wanted Man
(2014; 121 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, December 4 at 6:45 p.m.
"Although the cast is uniformly fine, Hoffman shines in a role that demands not showmanship, but a kind of complexity and contradiction that can be rendered only through the kind of dull character details that he excelled in, accumulating them from the inside out." - Washington Post
Guardians of the Galaxy
(2014; 121 minutes; Rated PG-13)
Thursday, December 11 at 6:45 p.m.
"It manages the trick of being both an unironic sci-fi action-adventure flick and a zippy parody of one. It’s exciting, funny, self-aware, beautiful to watch and even, for a flickering instant or two, almost touching." - Washington Post
The Skeleton Twins
(2014; 93 minutes; Rated R)
Thursday, December 18 at 7:00 p.m.
"This is a smart movie about complicated people in search of something approaching inner peace." - Chicago Sun-Times
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
(2014; 130 minutes; Rated PG-13)
Thursday, January 8 at 6:30 p.m.
"More than a bunch of occasionally thrilling action sequences, emotional gut punches and throwaway jokes arranged in predictable sequence. (Dawn) is technically impressive and viscerally exciting, for sure, but it also gives you a lot to think, and even to care, about." - The New York Times
