Opening This Weekend: February 13th

February isn’t often regarded as the season of cinematic brilliance, but this year doesn’t look so bad. While there are a few long shots, Cronenberg’s Maps in Our Stars and the highly-anticipated Fifty Shades of Grey film offset the dreary stuff. So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, 
don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theatre.
