There's a lot of great movie possibilities in the near future for anybody that is film minded and doesn't mind the occasional road trip.  First off, let me direct you to the photo at the beginning of this post, because...

According to somebody that posted on the Vali-Hi Facebook, they are tentatively planning to open on Saturday, April 7th.  If you have never been to a drive-in, then the Vali-Hi is a great place to go for your first drive-in experience.  They get everything right, and you get three first run movies for the price of one.  Plan on a late evening, as the movies don't start until sunset, but you will not regret it.  The Vali-Hi is a fantastic movie experience.

Wednesday, March 28th - Apocalypse Now
As part of the Minneapolis Landmark Theatres Obsession Film Series, they are screening Apocalypse Now at The Lagoon.  It looks like it's the original version, too, and not the Redux.  Possibly the greatest Vietnam film ever made.

April through May - Alfred Hitchcock Series
Hitchcock is always great, but it's a special thing to see him on the big screen.  The Trylon and The Riverview are sharing the responsibilities for the screenings.  Here's the schedule:

April 16th - To Catch A Thief (Riverview)
April 23rd - Strangers On A Train (Riverview)
April 30th - Rebecca (Riverview)
May 4th-6th - Saboteur/Torn Curtain Double Feature (The Trylon)
May 7th - Spellbound (The Trylon)
May 14th - Frenzy (The Trylon)

Sports Movies at The Trylon
April 13th-15th - Rocky/Raging Bull Double Feature
April 20th-22nd - Bad News Bears/Slapshot Double Feature
April 27th-29th - Hoosiers/Rudy Double Feature

Beginning March 30th at The Lagoon - The Raid!

The Raid is already being called the greatest action movie ever made, and every review I've read has been breathlessly enthusiastic.  Put his film on your shortlist.

Beginning April 6th for one week only - The Ballad Of Genesis and Lady Jaye

The epic love story of Genesis P-Orridge and Lady Jaye, and their quest to look exactly the same.  The trailer looks pretty emotional, and blurs the line between love and art.

That's about all I'm coming up with this morning, but it should keep you busy for a while.  HAVE A GREAT TIME AT THE MOVIES!


P.S.:  Thursday night at six p.m. we are announcing the dates for the Shuffle Function 24 Hour Pledge Drive A-Go-Go, PLUS A SPECIAL POST MARATHON GRIND-FU!  The lineup is fantastic, so tune into Shuffle Function: Unbound for more information!
