Coming Soon: Opening this week Jan 30th
This week we find ourselves confronted with the fact that January is not the place blockbuster movies emerge. We occasionally get some great independent gems that are overflow from Sundance, but those are limited in release and usually don’t gain traction until a wide release or they hit Netflix.
This week we have:
– Charlie Victor Romeo (NY)
A unique and riveting theatrical experience, CHARLIE VICTOR ROMEO (CVR) is a performance documentary derived entirely from the “Black Box” transcripts of six major real-life airline emergencies.
– 12 O’Clock Boys (limited)
The 12 O’CLOCK BOYS are a notorious urban dirt bike pack in Baltimore — popping wheelies and weaving at excessive speeds through traffic, the group impressively evades the hamstrung police. In Lotfy Nathan’s wild, dynamic documentary (three years in the making), their stunning antics are envisioned through the eyes of young adolescent Pug – a bright kid from the Westside obsessed with the riders and willing to do anything to join their ranks. Premiering to critical acclaim at the SXSW and Hot Docs Film Festivals (where Nathan won the HBO Emerging Artist Award), 12 O’CLOCK BOYS provides a compelling and intimate personal story of a young boy and his dangerous, thrilling dream.

Depressed single mom Adele and her son Henry offer a wounded, fearsome man a ride. As police search town for the escaped convict, the mother and son gradually learn his true story as their options become increasingly limited.
– Somewhere Slow (limited)
When Anna Thompson gets mixed up in a convenience store robbery, she makes a split-second decision to walk out of her life and into the unknown. On her travels, she meets Travis, a teenage drifter on his own journey of self-discovery.
Three best friends find themselves where we’ve all been – at that confusing moment in every dating relationship when you have to decide “So…where is this going?”
