Pan's Labyrinth--

A fanciful and chilling story set against the backdrop of a fascist regime in 1944 rural Spain. The film centers on Ofelia, a lonely and dreamy child living with her mother and adoptive father; a military officer tasked with ridding the area of rebels. In her loneliness, Ofelia creates a world filled with fantastical creatures and secret destinies. With post war repression at its height, Ofelia must come to terms with her world through a fable of her own creation.

Rated R for graphic violence and some language.

Arthur and the Invisibles--

It all began with a cryptic message left in an old book of magic spells. "To find the country of the Minimoys, trust in Shakespeare." Arthur knows that this is a sign from his Grandpa Archibald, who disappeared mysteriously four years ago. But where is he? Where is the treasure trove of rubies that it is said he brought back from Africa? Arthur's Grandma could really use it to pay off all the debts that have accumulated since her husband disappeared. Time is running out. If Grandma doesn't pay her creditors very soon, the house and garden will be demolished and replaced by austere concrete high rises. It's 10 year old Arthur, whose pint size stature conceals huge resources of intelligence, bravery and daring, who finds the passage into the world of the Minimoys, these tiny little beings who are barely two millimeters tall. It's a fabulous land nestling in the grass of Arthur's back yard, a world like none you have ever seen before! A mesmerizing world full of surprises that Arthur discovers in the volatile company of Minimoy Princess Selenia. They set off to find Archibald and his rubies, but don't go thinking it'll be easy! Any number of dangers lie in wait for them, beginning with The Evil M and his horrible Seide warriors. One last piece of advice before you start reading this story: don't ever say the word "Maltazard" out loud! Ignore this warning at your peril! Will our three heroes succeed in outwitting the diabolical Maltazard?

Stomp the Yard--

A young dancer from a troubled background in Los Angeles finally finds his calling in life as two fraternities compete for his skills when he enrolls at a university in Atlanta.

Rated PG-13 for a scene of violence, some sexual material and language.

A heart stopping mythic action adventure set against the turbulent end times of the once great Mayan civilization. When his idyllic existence is brutally disrupted by a violent invading force, a man is taken on a perilous journey to a world ruled by fear and oppression where a harrowing end awaits him. Through a twist of fate and spurred by the power of his love for his woman and his family he will make a desperate break to return home and to ultimately save his way of life.
Rated R for sequences of graphic violence and disturbing images.

Letters From Iwo Jima--
Sixty one years ago, U.S. and Japanese armies met on the island of Iwo Jima. Decades later, several hundred letters are unearthed from that stark island's soil. The letters give faces and voices to the men who fought there, as well as the extraordinary general who led them, Tadamichi Kuribayashi. With little defense other than sheer will and the volcanic rock of the island itself, Gen. Kuribayashi's unprecedented tactics transform what was predicted to be a quick and bloody defeat into nearly 40 days of heroic and resourceful combat. In an effort to explore an event that continues to resonate with both cultures, Clint Eastwood was haunted by the sense that making only one film, "Flags of Our Fathers," would be telling only half the story. With this unprecedented dual film project, shot back to back to be released in sequence, Eastwood seeks to reveal the battle of Iwo Jima; and, by implication, the war in the Pacific as a clash not only of arms but of cultures.
Rated R for graphic war violence.

The Good German--
Berlin, 1945. U.S. war correspondent Jake Geismer has just arrived to cover the upcoming Potsdam Peace Conference, where Allied leaders will meet to determine the fate of a vanquished Germany and a newly liberated Europe; in the process, carve up what's left of any value for themselves. It's not Jake's first visit to Berlin. He once managed a news bureau here. He once fell in love here. But that seems a lifetime ago as he takes in the staggering devastation on the jeep ride from the airport to his hotel in the American zone. Jake's driver, Corporal Tully, exudes small town American charm. An eager, guileless, good natured kid from the Midwest. In reality, he's corrupt to the core, bartering anything and anyone, and playing all sides for the highest price. But that's not unusual. Everyone in Berlin has a secret now. Everyone is working an angle to get what they need: money, power, survival, or just a way out. Tully's black market dealings don't interest Jake, but Tully's girlfriend does. She's Lena Brandt, Jake's former love, although somehow, now, not quite the person he once knew. She has been irrevocably changed by the war, the hardship of life in this ruined city and the burden of her own secrets. When Tully ends up in the Russian zone with 100,000 marks in his pocket and a bullet in his back, Jake finds himself drawn into the mystery of this murder, and the bigger mystery of why both the American and Russian authorities look the other way.
Rated R for language, violence and some sexual content.

Starring Peter O’Toole, Venus focuses on a pair of veteran actors, Maurice and Ian, whose daily routine is disrupted by the arrival of Ian's grandniece. O'Toole and Phillips play the grizzled thesps, and newcomer Whittaker plays the teen.
