The Back Space Theatre
(1120 Main Ave., 259-7940)
Friends with Kids.HH½ Platonic pals feel they need to keep up with their married friends, so they have a baby. What a terrible idea. (See review this page.) Rated R.
They Come to America. (Today and Saturday only; no Ebert rating) A very balanced look at the issue of illegal immigrants in the U.S. (See review this page.) Not rated
Sustainable Living Film Festival. (Today only) Two long and three short films paired with two community panel discussions led by local experts in renewable energy, resource efficiency and the Transition Town Movement.

Casablanca. (Thursday only) An encore screening of the Turner Classic Movies 70th anniversary presentation of the classic WWII love story.
The Lucky One.HH½ A Marine finds a photo of a woman in a combat zone and miraculously finds her upon his return to the states. What are the odds? Rated PG-13.
Think Like a Man.HH This doesn’t happen often, but they made a comedy of sorts out of a best-selling self-help book by Steve Harvey. Rated PG-13.
The Cabin in the Woods.HHH Five friends all alone in a spooky cabin in the woods. If you think you’ve heard this horror story before, think again. Rated R.
Lockout.HH½ Some wrongly convicted guy in the near future rescues the president’s daughter from vicious convicts and probably kills a lot of people in doing so. Rated PG-13.
The Three Stooges.HH½ Screenplay regurgitation has reached critical mass. Hollywood must be stopped. Rated PG.
Titanic 3-D. HHHHLike “Titanic”, but in 3-D. Rated PG-13.
Wrath of the Titans. HH (In digital 3-D with surcharge.) Don’t worry if you get confused about who’s on Zeus’ team and who’s on Kronos’ team. Most of the budget for this one went into the visuals, which are pretty cool. Rated PG-13.
The Hunger Games.HHH Best-seller hits the big screen; young folks in the future are forced to compete in Roman-esque fights to death. Fun. Rated PG-13.
21 Jump Street.HHH Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum are nothing like Johnny Depp and Peter DeLuise in the TV show. They’re still undercover cops in high school, but this is a comedy where the show was serious stuff. I think comedy was a good choice. Rated R.
(102 Fifth St. Next to the railroad depot, 247-8133)
