The singular Bill Murray stars in the comical story of a young boy who develops an unusual friendship with the cantankerous old guy next door. Maggie (Melissa McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year-old son, Oliver (Jaeden Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Naomi Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine—the race track, a strip club and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. Written and directed by Theodore Melfi.

As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

American Bear
(NR)   95  minutes
12:55 *Ends Thursday*



Sarah and Greg set out to critically explore American culture, compassion, and fear by relying on the kindness of strangers for a home each night. Traveling through 30 states in 60 days, they spend every day in a new town, learning why people may or may not be willing to open their homes.

Sarah and Greg spend time getting to know their hosts – each uniquely, culturally American – while the film raises questions about how we define American identities. Sarah and Greg’s own social location – white, young, middle class, appearing as a straight couple – guides the way they interact with strangers, complicating the hospitality they receive.


MPAA Rating: Not Rated

Teaser poster

Two-time Academy Award nominee Jeremy Renner (The Town, The Hurt Locker) leads an all-star cast in a dramatic thriller based on the remarkable true story of Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Gary Webb. Webb (Renner) stumbles onto a story which leads to the shady origins of the men who started the crack epidemic on the nation's streets... and further alleges that the CIA was aware of major dealers who were smuggling cocaine into the U.S., and using the profits to arm rebels fighting in Nicaragua. Despite warnings from drug kingpins and CIA operatives to stop his investigation, Webb keeps digging to uncover a conspiracy with explosive implications. His journey takes him from the prisons of California to the villages of Nicaragua to the highest corridors of power in Washington, D.C.—and draws the kind of attention that threatens not just his career, but his family and his life. Also starring Ray Liotta, Tim Blake Nelson and Mary Elizabeth Winstead.

Boyhood
(R)   170  minutes

10/17 - 10/23:
3:00 8:45
10/24 - 10/30: 8:40



Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Boyhood by writer/director Richard Linklater (director and co-writer of Before Midnight) is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, Boyhood charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's "Yellow" to Arcade Fire's "Deep Blue." Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

MPAA Rating: R for language including sexual references, and for teen drug and alcohol use
