Movies and the Holiday Tradition

Many people make going to the movies over the holidays one of their special family traditions.  In honor of that I thought you might like to see what will be playing at our wonderful, local theater, CinemaSalem.  Here is their newsletter:


Happy holidays to all from CinemaSalem. We hope your festivities are going smoothly, and that you get plenty of time to enjoy your family and friends this season.

We had our annual CinemaSalem holiday party Sunday night and it reminded me what an awesome, intelligent, fun and capable staff we have at the movie theater. So next time you visit CinemaSalem, wish them happy holidays!

Here's what's up for this week!

Now Playing: Gulliver's Travels (PG); Little Fockers (PG-13); Tron: Legacy (PG); Four Lions (R); and Harry Potter 7A (PG13)!

Little Fockers opens today at CinemaSalem, featuring Ben Stiller, Robert DeNiro, Blythe Danner, and many other big stars. Several critics love it, including Film Journal International: "Third go-round for the Focker family recycles gags from the earlier two films while playing up sensitivity over raunchiness," and "It is fun to revisit the characters and see what they're up to now." Commenting on the awesome cast, the Seattle Times notes: "Between them, Robert De Niro, Owen Wilson, Laura Dern, Dustin Hoffman and Barbra Streisand have 20 Academy Award nominations (six of them wins)."

Little Fockers screens today and Thursday at (4:45) and 7:00; Friday at Fri: (12:00) and (2:15); Saturday at (2:15), (4:45) and 7:00; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:00), (2:15), (4:45) and 7:00.

Opening Saturday is the promising Gulliver's Travels, adapted from Jonathan Swift's enjoyable satire. Digital Spy loves its star: "Jack Black is a force of nature!" and Cut Print Review finds that "the 3D is better employed here than it was in Tron: Legacy," and Filmink Australia calls it "family-friendly and entertaining."

Gulliver's Travels is screening in 3D here in Salem and will screen on Christmas at (1:45), (4:00) and 6:45; and Sunday-Thursday at (11:40 AM), (1:45), (4:00) and 6:45. Please note that this film opens on Christmas Day, not Christmas Eve.

The number one movie in America is Tron: Legacy which will screen on Friday at (11:20 AM) and (2:00); Christmas at (2:00), (4:30) and 7:15; and Sunday-Thursday at (11:20 AM), (2:00), (4:30) and 7:15. The Diva Review gives it a maximum rave: "All action and escapist fun, 20 years after its sire, the glorious-looking, totally enjoyable Tron Legacy represents a new height in digital cinema and pure entertainment right down to its amazing Daft Punk score."

Last week, we thought that Harry Potter 7A would be dis-apparating today, but it was so popular over the weekend that we're holding it over today, tomorrow, and Friday. Showtimes today and tomorrow are (4:30) and 7:20; and on Christmas Eve at (11:00) and (1:45).

Arriving on Friday in the Screening Room is Four Lions, which is drawing raves from all over the globe. Time Magazine: "Brilliantly incendiary." Slate Magazine: "The very existence of Four Lions is an act of audacity; the fact that it's also smart, humane, and frequently hilarious is nothing short of a miracle." New York Times: "You laugh until the laughter turns to ashes in your mouth. And then you laugh some more."

Four Lions will screen on Friday at (12:15) and (2:30); Saturday at (2:30), (5:00) and 7:30; and Sunday-Thursday at (12:15), (2:30), (5:00) and 7:30.

Thanks for supporting CinemaSalem, and happy holidays!
