The Last Station – Embarcadero, Balboa
If you would want to see more in-depth, weird romance stories than the ones that are being swilled in the movieplex, this would be one to consider, snob. Christopher Plummer, Helen Mirren, Paul Giamatti, and James McAvoy mix it up with religion, celibacy, Tolstoy, and … Helen Mirren.
Indiefest – The Roxie (all weekend)
In continuation of Indiefest, see Alfred Hitchcock cast as a professor during the cold war in Double Take (Friday) or Last Son, a documentary about the teens who created Superman (Fri & Sat). Both sound like chicken soup for this cold long weekend. For more films in the festival, and this weekend, check here.
Beach Blanket Bingo – Balboa
Celebrate V-Day nostalgic style with cute belly buttons, ambiguous men, and eyeliner on the beach! Hosted by Thrillville.
Annie Hall – Red Vic
Wanna see me cry?, every time: “This guy goes to a psychiatrist and says, “Doc, uh, my brother’s crazy;
he thinks he’s a chicken.” And, uh, the doctor says, “Well, why don’t
you turn him in?” The guy says, “I would, but I need the eggs.”
