The 12th Annual Festival of Film Noir

Guild Cinema closes out its latest summer in the dark with two more great double features. Friday brings with it "Desert Noir with Ida Lupino." That features 1953's The Hitch-Hiker and 1941's High Sierra. Saturday and Sunday close out the 10-day festival with an incredible double-feature of films based on Jim Thompson novels. First up is Stephen Frears' beautifully pulpy 1990 adaptation of The Grifters, starring John Cusack, Annette Bening and Angelica Huston. That's teamed with James Foley's criminally underrated 1990 adaptation of After Dark, My Sweet with Jason Patrick and Rachel Ward. (Opens Thursday 7/23)

7 Minutes

After becoming indebted to a psychopathic drug lord, three desperate young men are forced to commit a brazen robbery. But what begins as a simple plan--"in and out in seven minutes"--quickly escalates into a dangerous game of life and death. Celebrated music video director Jay Martin makes his feature film debut with this fast-paced thriller. Luke Mitchell ("Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D."), Jason Ritter ("Girls") and singer/actor Kris Kristofferson star. 84 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 7/24)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30


The second of Satyajit Ray's much-acclaimed Apu trilogy first hit theaters in 1957. It follows the life of a young boy (Smaran Ghosal) who grows up and leaves his rural home to study in Calcutta, forcing his mother to face a life alone. Newly restored and re-released. In Bengali with English subtitles. 109 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 7/27)
Guild Cinema Mon-Thu 5:30


This naughty Christmas fable from 1984 returns to theaters. Zach Galligan is the small-town kid trying to prevent the mischievous title monsters from destroying the holiday. The film's dark, chaotic brand of humor has aged well--although you're far more likely to find yourself rooting for evil Spike than for cutesy Gizmo these days. 106 minutes PG-13. (Opens Sunday 7/26)

Pather Panchali

Indian director Satyajit Ray launched his international career with this naturalistic, slice-of-life film about the childhood of a young boy (Subir Banerjee) living a harsh village life with his poor family. This 1955 debut was the first in Ray's acclaimed Apu trilogy, based on the sprawling 1929 novel by Bibhutibhushan Bandyopadhyay. Newly restored and re-released. In Bengali with English subtitles. 125 minutes Unrated. (Opens Monday 7/27)
Guild Cinema Mon-Thu 3:00, 8:00

A Town Called Panic

This nutty, manic and utterly hilarious stop-motion animated cartoon comes to us from Belgium, of all places. It follows the surreal adventures of Cowboy and Indian, two frequently feuding roommates who discover a weird underwater universe after their house is accidentally destroyed by a birthday gift gone wrong. Just go with it. It's like "SpongeBob SquarePants" crossed with "Gumby." Only funnier. In French with English Subtitles. 75 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 7/25)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 12:00


At least this reboot/sequel starts with a clever idea: Some 30 years after that fateful vacation to Wally World with his parents, now-grown-up Rusty Griswold (Ed Helms, taking over from Anthony Michael Hall) vows to recreate the journey with his wife (Christina Applegate) and kids. 99 minutes R.

The Vatican Tapes

At least this run-of-the-mill "exorcist battles demon for the soul of a young girl" horror flick does away with the "found footage" style so many of its brethren (The Devil Inside, The Last Exorcism) rely on. Michael Peña, Olivia Taylor Dudley and Dougray Scott star. Given that this comes to us from the amped-up director of Crank and Gamer, it's surprisingly low-key. 90 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 7/23)
