At the Arthouse

Non-multiplex flick picks

Enter the Dragon

We love Melt Bar & Grilled. We love movies. So it doesn't take a freakin' rocket scientist to figure out that we doubly love Melt Bar & Grilled's Late Shift movie series at the Capitol Theatre. The big cheeses at Melt offer an exclusive sandwich at both locations that's somehow tied to the midnight screenings. Saturday's movie is Bruce Lee's 1973 face-busting masterpiece Enter the Dragon. Safe bet that the food will kick ass too. — Michael Gallucci

A Better Life

An East L.A. gardener tries to raise his son the right way. Gangbangers and other people have different ideas about that. Opens Friday at the Cedar Lee.

Black Christmas

Cleveland native Keir Dullea comes home for marathon screenings of some of his best movies (read more about Dullea in Get Out!). First up is this 1974 shocker by the director of A Christmas Story and Porky's. Cinematheque. At 6 p.m. Thursday, July 14, and 9:10 p.m. Friday, July 15.

Bunny Lake Is Missing

David and Lisa

The Double Hour

An ex-cop and a maid hook up. Then things get ugly. Opens Friday at the Cedar Lee.

Hands Up!

Totally weird movie, shot in 1967 but banned by Polish censors until 1981. New and old footage collide in a story that may or may not be skewering Stalinism. Cinematheque. At 3 p.m. Sunday, July 17.

Lost Bohemia

Director Josef Astor (who grew up in Canton) lived in one of the apartments above Carnegie Hall for years, before he and his artist neighbors were kicked out to make room for offices.

Keir Dullea fields questions after Saturday's screening. But the real reason you should go is to have one of the best movies ever made blow your mind on the big screen. Cinematheque. At 8:15 p.m. Saturday, July 16, and 7 p.m. Sunday, July 17.
