Dear White People

Opens Friday, Oct 17, 2014 Synopsis: A satirical portrait of race relations in early 21st-century America, writer/director Justin Simien's playfully perceptive feature debut tells the story of a biracial Winchester University student whose controversial radio show sparks a media frenzy of epic proportions. When Samantha White (Tessa Thompson) begins her radio program by declaring that white people will now be required to have two black friends in order to avoid appearing racist (and that drug dealers don't count), she immediately catches the attention of the all-black residential hall that is being forced out of existence due to diversification. Subsequently elected president of the hall, Samantha becomes the subject of a reality show that deals with racial issues. Meanwhile, the Winchester University's all-white student newspaper staff mistakenly assumes that young black outcast Lionel Higgins (Tyler James Williams) is an expert on black culture, and recruits him to report on the brewing controversy. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Tyler James Williams, Tessa Thompson, Teyonah Parris, Brandon Bell, Kyle Gallner Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

Transcendence

Now Playing Synopsis: A brilliant innovator in the field of Artificial Intelligence becomes the bridge in the gap between man and machine in this sci-fi thriller starring Johnny Depp. His entire career, Dr. Will Caster (Depp) has been working toward one goal -- to create a machine possessing the entire spectrum of human emotions, and the collective intelligence of every person who has ever lived. But while Dr. Caster's unorthodox experiments have made him famous in scientific circles, a radical anti-tech group known as Rift is determined to stop him at all costs. In the midst of an attack on A.I. labs across the United States, one Rift agent manages to shoot Dr. Caster with a radioactive bullet, ensuring his death. Little did Rift realize that their efforts to destroy Dr. Caster would only make him stronger than they ever could have imagined, because before he dies, his wife Evelyn (Rebecca Hall) and best friend Max (Paul Bettany) successfully transfer Dr. Caster's consciousness into a computer, where his hunger for knowledge and power transforms him into an unstoppable force of sentient energy inhabiting every computer and electrical system on the planet. Morgan Freeman co-stars. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Johnny Depp, Paul Bettany, Rebecca Hall, Morgan Freeman, Kate Mara Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review

The Hero of Color City

Opens Friday, Oct 3, 2014 Synopsis: Exodus Film Group presents this computer-animated children's film featuring the voices of Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson, and Wayne Brady. Ben is a young boy who loves to color; little does he realize his beloved crayons lead a secret life of excitement and adventure. Every night, when the sun goes down, Ben's crayons pay a visit to Color City, a whimsical world of breathtaking beauty. Trouble arises, however, when Ben falls asleep one night, and Yellow is left behind by her fellow crayons. In her attempt to catch up with them, Yellow accidentally stirs an unfinished sketch of the monstrous King Scrawl and his malevolent henchman Gnat. Before they can be stopped, the diabolical duo have made their way to Color City, and staked their claim on the magical Rainbow Waterfall. Now, if Yellow and her friends don't act fast, all of Color City's glorious hues will soon fade. Fortunately for the citizens of this enchanted land, courageous Yellow is about to learn that if she believes in herself, anything is possible -- even defeating a formidable foe like the dreaded King Scrawl. ~ Jeremy Wheeler, Rovi Cast: Christina Ricci, Rosie Perez, Craig Ferguson, Wayne Brady, Arsenio Hall Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
