Did you miss a movie at one of the larger theaters in the area? Not to worry—La Grange Theater might have it.
Right in downtown La Grange, you can find cheaper tickets and a second chance to see a movie you missed (or loved enough to watch again).
Here's what's playing this weekend, May 16-19:
Final run Thursday:
Evil Dead (R) remakes the cult classic that has since spawned probably far too many cabin-in-the-woods horror movies (except for The Cabin in the Woods, which was fantastic).
GI Joe: Retaliation (PG-13) features Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Channing Tatum and Bruce Willis showing off a spectrum of muscle mass, and the GI Joe team fights a threat from inside the U.S. government.
Jack the Giant Slayer (PG-13) is CGI heavy, but an action-packed re-imagining of the classic children's tale.
Showing through the weekend:
Silver Linings Playbook (R) was an Oscar darling with one of the greatest casts in movie history (all four main actors were nominated). It's about a bipolar man (Bradley Cooper) who leaves a state institution and tries to reunite with his cheating wife, but ends up falling in love with the depressed, sexy Jennifer Lawrence. It's one of my favorite movies of the last year.
Oz the Great and Powerful (PG) features a beautiful cast (James Franco, Mila Kunis) and some beautiful CGI wizardry, though perhaps not much depth.
Pain & Gain (R) stars Mark Wahlberg as a bodybuilder who plans to kidnap a rich businessman who goes to his gym (Tony Shalhoub). This would probably be better if the Coen brothers dreamed it up, but the word is Pain & Gain depicts the bodybuilding world well.
The Host (PG-13) is the new project of Stephanie Meyer, the creator of Twilight. It's described as "unseen enemy threatens mankind by taking over their bodies and erasing their memories." No confirmation on whether Meyer is that unseen enemy.
