Avengers: Age of Ultron

Earth's mightiest mortals are back for a second go-around. Seems that Tony Stark (Robert Downey Jr.) has built a super-powered robot named Ultron (voiced by James Spader) who wants to bring peace to humanity by wiping it out. Can Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye and newcomer The Vision stop this metallic madman before his plan comes to fruition? Probably, otherwise we don't get any more movies. Overstuffed? Sure. Exciting. Hell, yeah. 141 minutes PG-13. (Opens Thursday 4/30)

Batman: Mask of the Phantasm

Bruce W. Timm and Paul Dini spun their successful run on the film noir-inspired "Batman: The Animated Series" into this dark, mystery-filled 1993 feature. Seems our hero is being implicated in a series of mob boss murders. The real culprit? A vigilante assassin known only as The Phantasm. See also: Reel World: Batman: Mask of the Phantasm, Outdoor Vision Fest, Santa Fe Labor Film Festival by Devin D. O’Leary (4/30/2015). 76 minutes PG. (Opens Friday 5/1)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:30

Big Trouble in Little China

On the eve of its new Blu-Ray release, John Carpenter's 1986 action romp returns for a brief theatrical visit. Kurt Russell is rowdy trucker Jack Burton, who gets roped into a centuries-old supernatural brawl on the streets of Chinatown. 98 minutes PG-13. (Opens Sunday 5/3)

Clouds of Sils Maria

A veteran actress (Juliette Binoche) is thrown for a loop when the filmmaker who gave her her big break dies. At the memorial she runs into an up and-and-coming director who proposes remaking her first film. She retreats to the Alps with her assistant (Kristen Stewart from the Twilight films) to contemplate the career move. Binoche is good; Stewart is even better--but the self-referential script is glacial and extremely talky. FULL REVIEW: Film industry drama finds actress caught between art and a hard place by Devin D. O’Leary (4/30/2015). 123 minutes R. (Opens Friday 5/1)
High Ridge Fri-Sun 12:20, 3:30, 7:00, 10:20; Mon-Thu 12:20, 3:30, 7:00

The Lady from Shanghai

The Guild celebrates Orson Welles' birthday with a two-film tribute. This 1947 film noir showcases the legendary actor/director's skill in turning cheap pulp material into complex cinematic puzzles. Here, Welles plays a boat captain who signs on to a bizarre yachting cruise just to get closer to the mysterious Mrs. Bannister (Rita Hayworth--well, who could blame him?). What follows is a twisty plot full of deception, fraud and murder. Double-featured with Magician. 88 minutes Unrated. (Wednesday 5/6)
Guild Cinema Wed-Thu 6:00

Magician: The Astonishing Life and Work of Orson Welles

On the eve of his hundredth birthday, Orson Welles gets the biopic treatment from Academy Award-winner Chuck Workman (Superstar: The Life and Times of Andy Warhol). Magician features scenes from just about every existing Welles film, including clips from his final, unfinished works. Friend Peter Bogdanovich, lover Oja Kodar and biographers Joseph McBride and Simon Callow are among those interviewed--but it's the patchwork of film clips that provide the best portrait of the actor/filmmaker. Double-featured with The Lady from Shanghai. 94 minutes PG-13. (Opens Wednesday 5/6)
Guild Cinema Wed-Thu 4:00, 8:00

The NeuroFilm Festival

The Brain Hackers STEM program and the Media Arts Collaborative Charter School present this collection of short films rooted in brain and behavior science. The idea is to introduce young students to brain-based science by exploring a range of topics from curious phenomena to artistic illustrations of how our gray matter works. Admission is $5 for adults. Anyone under 16 is free. 100 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 5/3)
Guild Cinema Sun 1:00

New Futures School Student Film Festival

Funded through an APS Education Foundation Horizon Grant, this free student film festival features collaborative short films made by, for and about local high school students. Aliens, ghost stories and a John Steinbeck adaptation are just some of the topics to go in front of the cameras. 65 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 5/2)
Guild Cinema Sat 2:30

The Salt of the Earth (2014)

Famed Brazilian photojournalist Sebastião Salgado is profiled in this stunning documentary co-directed by arty German Wim Wenders (Wings of Desire). Since the 1970s Salgado has traveled the world documenting the lives of native peoples, migrant workers and displaced populations. After covering ethnic cleansing in Rwanda, however, his faith in humanity broke down--setting in motion a beautifully unexpected, late-in-life shift in perspective. The film is an emotional reminder that art can change the lives of people who make it as easily as the lives of people who view it. FULL REVIEW: Breathtaking photography forms backbone of life-changing biopic by Devin D. O’Leary (4/23/2015). 110 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 4/24)
High Ridge Fri-Sun 12:10, 10:20; Mon-Thu 12:10


A rural cattle herder (Ibrahim Ahmed) and his family who reside in the dunes of Timbuktu find their quiet lives--which are typically free of the urban Jihadists determined to control their faith--abruptly disturbed. An Academy Award nominee for Best Foreign Language Film. In English, French, Arabic, Bambara and Songhay with English subtitle 97 minutes PG-13. (Opens Sunday 5/3)
Guild Cinema Sun-Tue 3:45, 6:00, 8:15

Today's Events

For their seventh studio album, Lift a Sail, Yellowcard had a simple but ambitious goal: to outdo everything they’d ever done before. The guitars and drums had to hit harder; the songwriting had to cut deeper; the choruses had to reach heights only hinted at on their previous outings. Frontman Ryan Key believes he and his bandmates—guitarist Ryan Mendez, violinist Sean Mackin, bassist Josh Portman and guest drummer Nate Young (Anberlin)—succeeded on all those fronts. “We really feel like we got where we wanted to be, and made a proper rock ‘n’ roll record,” Key says proudly.
