Hello local cinephiles. With Christmas coming on Sunday it's a predictably light week for new movies. But that doesn't mean there's nothing new opening this week.

Kind of depressing for the holidays but if that doesn't interest you, they're also holding a special two-night screening of It's a Wonderful Life. Now that's more like it. Keep Reading

It's getting really cold outside. Instead of visiting an air-conditioned movie theater, you should check out the local playhouses. I'm sure it's warmer, and you get to see the actors live. There aren't any new plays debuting this week but I'll remind you about some that are still in production, including a few that will be ending this week. Keep Reading
