Dawn of the Dead (1978)

George A. Romero's 1978 sequel to his groundbreaking horror hit Night of the Living Dead is arguably the high watermark of zombie films. Set in a crumbling Pennsylvania shopping mall, the film finds two SWAT team members, a traffic reporter and a television executive trying to survive against the ever-growing horde of reanimated corpses. 127 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 10/2)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey--Extended Edition

Peter Jackson loads everybody back into the hobbit cart to adapt J.R.R. Tolkien's pre-Lord of the Rings novel. Martin Freeman ("Sherlock") plays the young Bilbo Baggins, sent on an epic quest by wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen) to stop a marauding dragon. The tone is notably more juvenile, and the story has been much inflated to fill out three whole films. In case that wasn't enough, though, this version's got 21 more minutes of furious hobbit action. 190 minutes PG-13. (Opens Monday 10/5)
Century Rio Mon 7:30
Cottonwood Stadium 16 Mon 7:30

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug--Extended Edition

Director Peter Jackson spent a goodly amount of time setting up the story for J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit in the last film. Now the journey is well and truly underway, and we finally get some rousing action, some gorgeous set-pieces and one hell of a dragon. Plus, this version's got 25 more minutes of furious hobbit action. 186 minutes PG-13. (Opens Wednesday 10/8)

The Martian

Matt Damon is an astronaut who gets left for dead on Mars after a manned mission goes horribly awry. Stuck on the red planet with only minimal supplies and his scientific mind, our hero must figure out a way to survive based on ingenuity, wit and spirit. Ridley Scott (Alien) directs. It's based, of course, on the best-selling book by Andy Weir. 141 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 10/1)

My Man Godfrey

William Powell and Carole Lombard star in this 1936 screwball comedy/romance about a scatterbrained socialite who hires a homeless man as a family butler. This Depression era piece of witty wish fulfillment is considered one of the best films for both stars. 94 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 10/3)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 1:00

The Princess Bride

A true modern classic, this much-loved 1987 film (from the book by William Goldman) gives us comedy, romance, fantasy, action and adventure. This postmodern fairy tale features swashbuckling swordplay, a giant (André the Giant, to be specific), an evil prince, a beautiful princess and a kiss or two. Still magnificent after all these years. 98 minutes PG. (Sunday 10/4)

Century 14 Downtown Fri 9:00; Sun 12:30



Emily Blunt stars as an idealistic FBI agent enlisted into a shadowy mission by a mysterious CIA agent (Josh Brolin) and his tight-lipped "advisor" (Benicio Del Toro). Ostensibly, the group is trying to stop the drug trade along the US/Mexico border. But as the operation grows more violent and secretive, our heroine begins to wonder what side of the fence she's really on. Director Denis Villeneuve (Incendies, Prisoners) directs this lightless thriller with all the grisly tension of Se7en. FULL REVIEW: Blunt, brutal drug war drama finds cops and robbers (but not good guys and bad guys) along the US-Mexico border by Devin D. O’Leary (10/1/2015). 121 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 10/1)

Sleeping With Other People

Jason Sudeikis and Alison Brie star as two romantic failures who reunite 10 years after their college hookup at a 12-step program for sex addicts. The two attempt to become platonic friends, counseling one another on their romantic problems (and vowing to not sleep with together). Writer-director Leslie Headland (Bachelorette) has crafted a smart, sexy and delightfully raw anti-romantic comedy with a hell of a cast. (Adam Scott, Natasha Lyonne and Amanda Peet are in there too.) 101 minutes R. (Opens Friday 10/2)

The Walk

Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays real-life daredevil Philippe Petit, who in 1974 talked a group of friends into helping realize his life's dream--breaking into the world Trade Center and performing an illegal high-wire walk between the towers. Based on the 2008 documentary Man on Wire. 123 minutes PG. (Opens Thursday 10/8)

The Winding Stream

Subtitled "The Carters, the Cashes and the Course of Country Music," this tune-filled documentary traces the roots of American music right back to the Appalachian foothills (a town called Maces Springs, Va., to be precise). It's there that the Original Carter Family made its mark on the history of American recorded music. 90 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 10/4)
