1971

In March of 1971, eight ordinary citizens broke into an FBI field office outside of Philadelphia, Pa. The group, calling itself the Citizens' Commission to Investigate the FBI, stole every single file in the office and started mailing them to newsrooms around the country. That action resulted in the revelation of COINTELPRO, J. Edgar Hoover's illegal domestic surveillance program. Finally, the story of how it all went down--and who was behind it--is revealed in director Johanna Hamilton's searing portrait of still timely (hello, Edward Snowden) political rebellion. 79 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 3/29)
Guild Cinema Sun-Thu 4:15, 8:30

The Boy with Green Hair

This classic postwar parable from 1948 examines the public reaction to a young war orphan who finds safe haven in small-town America--at least until his hair mysteriously turns green. Then, frightened by a change they cannot understand, the townspeople turn against the outsider. Robert Ryan, Pat O'Brien and Dean Stockwell are among the cast. 82 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 3/28)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00

The Breakfast Club: 30th Anniversary

The John Hughes classic about five high school students, all different stereotypes, who meet in detention, where they pour their hearts out to each other, and discover how they have a lot more in common than they thought. 97 minutes R. (Opens Tuesday 03/31/2015)
Cottonwood Stadium 16 Tue 7:30

East of Eden

UNM's SUB Theater celebrates the 60th anniversary of this dramatic classic. James Dean (in his first major screen role) stars as the son of a California farmer engaged in a Cain and Abel relationship with his older brother. Tensions rise around the farmstead as World War I looms and dad stakes his fortune on a long-haul shipping scheme. Based on the novel by John Steinbeck. 115 minutes Unrated. (Opens Thursday 4/2)
SUB Theater Thu 7:00

Get Hard

Will Ferrell and the clearly overworked Kevin Hart (six films last year and two so far in 2015) star in this racial comedy. Ferrell is millionaire James King, busted for fraud and bound for San Quentin. On the run from police, James ends up in the South Central LA home of family man Darnell Lewis (Hart). Mistaking him for a street thug (because, you know, racial humor), James offers to pay the man to school him in the art of being a gangsta--so he can survive in prison. Needless to say, this mismatched buddy comedy doesn't try very hard. 100 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 3/26)

Gigi

Leslie Caron, Maurice Chevalier and Louis Jourdan star in this 1958 musical (and winner of 9 Academy Awards). Caron is a young girl in turn-of-the-century Paris being groomed as a professional courtesan. But when she accompanies a rich family friend (Jourdan) on a vacation, she begins to blossom into a woman. In retrospect, the whole thing is kind of pervy. But it's a feast for the eyes and ears. Chevalier provides the highlight, singing "Thank Heaven For Little Girls." 115 minutes G. (Opens Sunday 3/29)

Hits

Comedian/actor David Cross ("Arrested Development") wrote and directed this feature comedy about an anxious municipal worker (Matt Walsh from "Upright Citizens Brigade," "Human Giant" and "Reno 911!") who becomes a viral video sensation. Our unwitting hero's caustic meltdown at a city council meeting becomes a hit on the internet, causing his fame-obsessed daughter to go nuts and a horde of Brooklyn hipsters to rally around him like a cult leader. Wyatt Cenac, Michael Cera, David Koechner, Derek Waters and Amy Sedaris drop by for cameos. 96 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 3/27)
Guild Cinema Fri 4:00, 6:00, 8:00

Holbrook/Twain: An American Odyssey

For 60 years legendary actor Hal Holbrook has been portraying writer Mark Twain live on stage in the award-winning one-man show Mark Twain Tonight! This new documentary examines both Holbrook's inspired portrayal of the fabled humorist and the relevance of Twain's work in today's America. Holbrook himself will be appearing at the screening, courtesy of Movies and Meaning: A Dream Space Festival. 95 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 3/28)
Guild Cinema Sat 4:30, 7:00

Home

DreamWorks Animation mashes together E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial and Lilo & Stitch in the hopes that wayward alien mascot Oh (voiced by Jim Parsons from "The Big Bang Theory") will become the next toy/video game/t-shirt-generating machine. It's safe to say he won't. The story, about a misfit alien who befriends a lonely Earth girl (Rihanna), feels awfully recycled. If you're an adult who doesn't find Parsons' voice grating, you might survive a screening with your kids. 94 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 3/27)

An Honest Liar

The life and career of renowned stage magician and professional skeptic/dubunker of the paranormal James Randi is explored in this twisty and highly entertaining documentary portrait. The fact that Randi came out as gay a few years ago--in his 80s!--shows the old guy still has a trick or two up his sleeve. 90 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 3/29)

It Follows

In this innovative, flashback-'80s-style horror flick, teenagers who have sex are hunted down by a nameless, faceless and completely unstoppable monster. The only way to fend it off? Pass the curse on to some other poor victim by ... you know, sleeping with them. It sounds outlandish, but writer-director David Robert Mitchell (The Myth of the American Sleepover) has crafted one of the purest, scariest horror films in years with this one. 100 minutes R.

Toy Story

UNM's SUB Theater celebrates the 20th anniversary of this beloved animated classic from Pixar. The CGI animation looks a bit primitive these days, but cowboy Woody (voiced by Tom Hanks) and spaceman Buzz Lightyear (voiced by Tim Allen) are still as lovable as ever. 81 minutes G.

Woman in Gold

British treasure Helen Mirren stars as Maria Altmann, an octogenarian Jewish refugee who takes on the Austrian government to recover a Gustav Klimt masterpiece stolen by the Nazis during World War II. It's based on a true story. Unfortunately, it's a mostly speech-heavy courtroom drama. And what the hell is Ryan Reynolds (Van Wilder, Green Lantern) doing here playing a Jewish lawyer? 109 minutes PG-13. (Opens Tuesday 3/31)
