45 Years

45 Years

A long-married British couple (Charlotte Rampling, Tom Courtenay) are preparing to celebrate their 45th wedding anniversary. That is until hubby receives a mysterious note from Switzerland about the discovery of a dead body, lost on a glacier for 50 years. The film (based on a short story by Lancashire poet David Constantine) is incredibly small and quiet--but like an earthquake, everything happens under the surface. Rampling and Courtenay five career-best performances, subtlety navigating their way through long-buried secrets, jealousies and truths. FULL REVIEW: Domestic drama about love and marriage keeps its tension deep under the surface by Devin D. O’Leary (2/4/2016). 95 minutes R. (Opens Friday 2/5)

This controversial documentary relates the story of departed British soul singer Amy Winehouse "in her own words." Archival footage and unheard tracks enliven the film's slow-motion car crash of a narrative. Fans will feel the loss most deeply, but even those who didn't listen to Winehouse may find themselves gripped by the unflinching account. 128 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 2/4)

The Choice

It's Valentine's Day weekend, surely somebody's got another sap-tacular Nicholas Sparks book we can throw up on the big screen for a couple of days. ... Ah, here we go. Travis (Benjamin Walker from Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter) and Gabby (Teresa Palmer from that Point Break remake) meet as neighbors in some picturesque, seaside North Carolina community. (It ain't Nicholas Sparks without rowboats.) Naturally, they fall in love. Naturally, there are roadblocks. Namely, the coma Gabby winds up in. No points will be awarded for guessing the outcome. 111 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 2/4)

The Emperor Jones

In honor of Black History month, Guild Cinema presents two films starring actor/athlete/singer/cultural scholar/author/political activist Paul Robeson. In this 1933 drama (based on a play by Eugene O'Neill), Robeson stars as the "unscrupulously ambitious" Brutus Jones, who escapes from jail and unexpectedly finds himself the emperor of a Caribbean island. Double-featured with Song of Freedom. 72 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 2/6)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 1:00


Julianne Moore and Ellen Page star in this earnest biopic about New Jersey police Lieutenant Laurel Hester, whose domestic partner battled to secure pension benefits after Hester was diagnosed with terminal cancer. The message is timely and well-meaning, but the execution is formulaic, leaving this well-staffed drama just a peg or two above your average Lifetime movie. 103 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 11/6)
SUB Theater Thu 7:00

Hail, Caesar!

The Coen brothers (The Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country For Old Men) take us back to 1950s Hollywood where a studio "fixer" (Josh Brolin) enlists a bunch of goofy actors (Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Ralph Fiennes, Tilda Swinton) to help locate a famous movie star (George Clooney) who has been kidnapped and held for ransom. 106 minutes PG-13.

Ip Man 3

Martial arts star Donnie Yen returns to one of his most famous roles after five years. Here, Master Ip--the real-life martial arts instructor who taught Bruce Lee how to fight--is called upon to fight off a band of brutal gangsters led by a crooked property developer. The selling point for this third go-around is that Yen goes toe-to-toe with infamous American boxer Mike Tyson. In Cantonese and English with English subtitles. 105 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 2/5)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30


Josh Duhamel, Al Pacino, Anthony Hopkins, Malin Akerman and Julia Stiles star in this convoluted thriller about an ambitious young lawyer who takes on a big case against a ruthless executive of a large pharmaceutical company, only to get tangled up in blackmail and corruption. 106 minutes R.

Pride and Prejudice and Zombies

Seth Grahame-Smith's groundbreaking (and nonetheless silly) mash-up novel finally gets the big screen treatment. Grahame-Smith's version was nothing more than the text of Jane Austen's original novel with the word "zombie" occasionally inserted. This at least adds some grody special effects to the romantic Victorian tale of five sisters on the hunt for suitable husbands. Lily James ("Downton Abbey"), Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) and Suki Waterhouse (Insurgent) are among the stars. 108 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 2/4)

To Catch A Thief

Alfred Hitchcock's 1955 mystery romance casts Cary Grant as a suave cat burglar who must come out of retirement in the French Riviera when he's framed by a series of robberies committed in his particular style. Grace Kelly, meanwhile, gives good face. 106 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 2/7)
