Step Up Revolution.HH They have now made four of these. A rich girl’s dad wants to develop the neighborhood where her dance-crazed boyfriend likes to hold flash mobs. This is not an original premise. Rated PG-13.

Ice Age 4: Continental Drift.HH (In standard and digital 3-D with surcharge) I’m not going to pretend like I know what happened in the first three. Surely there are those who do, and for them we present No. 4. Enjoy. Rated PG.
