The Congress

From the director of Waltz With Bashir comes this subversive, self-referential mind-bender. Actress Robin Wright plays an actress named Robin Wright, who decides to take on one final job--preserving her digital likeness for future Hollywood. Twenty years later, her computerized avatar is a superstar under the creative control of the studio's head animator. This trippy mix of live-action and animation features the voices and faces of Harvey Keitel, Danny Huston, Jon Hamm, Paul Giamatti and others. It's (very loosely) based on a novel by Polish writer Stanislaw Lem. If you know who that is, that should give you some idea of how out-there this sci-fi drama is. 122 minutes Unrated. (Opens Tuesday 9/16)
Guild Cinema Tue-Thu 4:00, 9:00

Dolphin Tale 2

Winter, the handicapped dolphin who starred in the inspirational family film about her own life, returns in an even more fictionalized sequel. Here, marine biologists at an aquarium in Florida rescue an even cuter baby dolphin named Hope. Morgan Freeman, Ashley Judd and Harry Connick Jr. are the non-dolphin stars. 107 minutes PG.

The Drop

Tom Hardy, James Gandolfini and Noomi Rapace star in this gritty little crime drama about a good-natured mook working at his cousin's bar in Brooklyn. The place is secretly owned by the Chechen mob, though. And when some neighborhood idiots rob the joint, our protagonist (Hardy) and his cousin (Gandolfini) must find the money before the mob finds them. It's a slow-paced affair, but it builds to a shocking climax thanks to a smart script by author Dennis Lehane (Mystic River) and some indelible character work by Hardy. 106 minutes R.

In a World...

The suddenly multitalented actress Lake Bell ("Boston Legal," No Strings Attached, "Childrens Hospital") wrote, directed and stars in this surprisingly original screwball comedy about an underachieving vocal coach (Bell) who gets into the cutthroat world of movie trailer voice-overs. Funny folks Jeff Garlin, Demetri Martin, Ken Marino, Rob Corddry and Nick Offerman fill out the cast--with all sorts of secret movie industry cameos to boot. 93 minutes R. (Opens Thursday 9/11)
SUB Theater Fri-Sat 6:00, 8:00; Sun 1:00, 3:00

Made on Route 66

Guild Cinema Sat 4:00

No Good Deed

Taraji P. Henson ("Person of Interest," Think Like a Man) and Idris Elba ("Luther," Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom) class up this twisty domestic thriller about a suburban wife and mother who finds her home invaded by a dangerous escaped convict. 84 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday 9/12)

The Nutty Professor (1963)

Before Eddie Murphy and his fat suits came along, Jerry Lewis wrote, directed and starred in this original, 1963 version about a nerdy scientist who transforms into a handsome ladies man thanks to a miraculous chemical. 107 minutes Unrated. (Opens Sunday 9/14)

Rich Hill

This evocative documentary heads to tiny Rich Hill, Mo., (population 1,393) to look in on three young boys as they go about their lives in America's hardworking, poverty-stricken heartland. Filmmakers Tracy Droz Tragos and Andrew Droz Palermo spent a year following their subjects, tracking the future of the American dream. Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Documentaries at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival. 91 minutes Unrated. (Opens Friday 9/12)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sun 7:30

Rushmore

This 1998 film from writing/directing/acting conglomerate Wes Anderson and Owen Wilson is, like all their films, an underrated cult gem. Jason Schwartzman stars as an untalented teenage overachiever who engages in a romantic battle of wills with businessman Bill Murray for the affections of a pretty elementary school teacher. Odd, off-kilter but loaded with lots of heart. Part of Guild Cinema's "Books & Bongs: The Sophomore Films of Wes Anderson & Richard Linklater" series. 93 minutes (friday)
Guild Cinema Tue-Thu 7:00

Sidewalks of London

The Albuquerque Film Club presents this 1938 classic starring Charles Laughton and Vivien Leigh. Leigh plays a dancer and pickpocket who teams up with street performer Laughton. Together, the two catch the eye of a theater magnate (Rex Harrison) who takes a shine to the lovely Miss Leigh. 80 minutes Unrated. (Opens Saturday 9/13)
Guild Cinema Sat-Sun 1:00

Under the Same Moon

In this simplified, overly sentimental look at immigration, a cute 'n' precocious kid named Carlitos (Adrian Alonso) leaves his hometown in Mexico on a quest to find his long-absent mom, slaving away as an undocumented worker in Los Angeles. Along the way, Carlitos meets lots of poor, saintly Mexicans and lots of rich, heartless Americans. The filmmakers at least know to concentrate on the emotional elements, turning this into a crowd-pleasing Hallmark movie by way of Telemundo. In English and Spanish with English subtitles. 110 minutes PG-13. (Opens Friday)
SUB Theater Thu 7:00

Witching & Bitching

Spanish auteur Álex de la Iglesia (Acción Mutante, The Day of the Beast, The Last Circus) writes and directs this mad, splatterpunk horror comedy about a gang of jewel thieves who get trapped in a weird mountain town full (and I mean full) of flesh-hungry witches. This is full-tilt, over-the-top craziness, blending the lurid nightmares of Guillermo del Toro with the bloody hilarity of early Peter Jackson. Energetic, funny and appropriately offensive. 115 minutes R. (Opens Friday 9/12)
Guild Cinema Fri-Sat 10:00
