Stalingrad: An IMAX 3D Experience

Now Playing Synopsis: The bloodiest battle in the history of modern warfare serves as the focus of this sweeping war film from director Fyodor Bondarchuk (9th Company, Obitaemiy Ostrov). The year is 1942: The German army has devastated the city of Stalingrad in the Soviet Union, prompting a band of brave Russian soldiers to make their last stand in a strategic building on the bank of the Volga. When the cornered soldiers encounter a pair of Russian women who failed to flee before the German assault, an unlikely romance emerges against the backdrop of the defining battle that will ultimately become a crucial victory for the Allied forces -- but not before five months of ferocious fighting. Thomas Kretschmann, Petr Federov, and Yanina Studilina star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Thomas Kretschmann, Petr Fedorov, Yanina Studilina, Dmitriy Lysenkov, Alexey Barabash, Andrei Smolyakov Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

The Monuments Men

Now Playing Synopsis: Cowriter and director George Clooney adapts author Robert M. Edsel's book The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History to tell the incredible true story of the seven art historians and museum curators who went behind enemy lines during World War II on a mission to recover some of the world's greatest works of art. With war raging in Europe, the Nazis have managed to plunder some of the biggest art collections on the continent. As the Third Reich begins to topple, the German army receives explicit orders that in the event of Adolf Hitler's death, they are to destroy every work of art in their possession. Determined to prevent 1000 years of culture from going up in flames, American president Franklin D. Roosevelt approves a proposal by Frank Stokes (Clooney) to form a task force comprised entirely of art experts to enter Germany, recover the works of art, and ensure they are returned to their rightful owners. With little knowledge of modern weapons or warfare tactics, the ragtag squadron has their work cut out for them. Cate Blanchett, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, and Jean Dujardin also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: George Clooney, Matt Damon, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Bob Balaban, Hugh Bonneville, Cate Blanchett Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
