Opening This Weekend: March 20th

Open 3.20

March gets us closer to summer blockbusters, and further away from Awards season, so we find ourselves in the midst of an awkward movie phase. But, and this is a big but, March offers some subtle delights you couldn’t find anywhere else. 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 theater.

On his last day in the city, he persuades his three oldest friends to help him retrace their greatest adventure together: a walk down the entire length of Manhattan. But their attempt to reclaim the glory of their early 20s doesn’t go quite as planned. Over the course of the day, buried conflicts emerge as Jake becomes embroiled with his ex-girlfriend and his friends dip into their own crises of manhood.
