Bears

Now Playing Synopsis: Disneynature's Bears takes viewers on an educational and entertaining adventure through the Alaskan wilderness, where the documentary follows a fiercely protective mama bear named Sky and her two young cubs, Amber and Scout, over the course of an entire year. Narrated by John C. Reilly, the film trails this young family as they venture down a mountain in search of sustenance, and encounter a variety of threats, including a pair of imposing male bears named Magnus and Chinook, as well as a crafty -- and very hungry -- wolf named Tikani. As the seasons shift, Sky teaches Amber and Scout the secrets to recognizing danger and foraging for food. Later, as salmon appear in the local waters, Sky attempts to build her fat reserves for the coming winter. But it won't be easy, because challenges await over every summit, and the competition for food can be fierce. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: John C. Reilly Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Mood Indigo

Opens Friday, Jul 18, 2014 Synopsis: His beloved new bride falling ill after a water lily blossoms in her lung, a devoted husband dedicates his entire life to surrounding her with the fresh flowers that will keep her alive in this visually inventive romance from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind director Michel Gondry.

Later, Colin meets the enchanting Chloe (Audrey Tautou) at a party, and the pair fall into a magical whirlwind romance that quickly leads to marriage. But all is not well with Chloe; there is a water lily growing in her lungs, and despite her worsening condition Colin spares no expense in supplying her with fresh flowers she needs so that she can go on breathing. But despite Colin's best efforts in treating his beloved bride's unusual malady, she continues to wither away right before his unbelieving eyes. Aïssa Maïga and Gad Elmaleh co-star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Audrey Tautou, Romain Duris, Omar Sy, Aïssa Maïga, Gad Elmaleh Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Frankenstein

Opens Friday, Jan 16, 2015 Synopsis: Still regarded as the definitive film version of Mary Shelley's classic tale of tragedy and horror, Frankenstein made unknown character actor Boris Karloff a star and created a new icon of terror. Along with the highly successful Dracula, released earlier the same year, it launched Universal Studio's golden age of 1930s horror movies. The film's greatness stems less from its script than from the stark but moody atmosphere created by director James Whale; Herman Rosse's memorable set designs, particularly the fantastic watchtower laboratory, featuring electrical equipment designed by Kenneth Strickfaden; the creature's trademark look from makeup artist Jack Pierce, who required Karloff to don pounds of makeup and heavy asphalt shoes to create the monster's unique lurching gait; and Karloff's nuanced performance as the tormented and bewildered creature. Frankenstein was greeted with screams, moans, and fainting spells upon its initial release, obliging Universal to add a disclaimer in which Edward Van Sloan advises the faint of heart to leave the theater immediately. If they don't: "Well...we've warned you." Director James Whale was memorably embodied by Ian McKellen in the Oscar-winning 1998 biopic Gods and Monsters. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi Cast: Colin Clive, Boris Karloff, Mae Clarke, John Boles, Dwight Frye, Edward Van Sloan Movie Details Buy Tickets Movie Review
