“What to Expect When You’re Expecting” (PG-13) — Synopsis: A look at love through the eyes of five interconnected couples experiencing the thrills and surprises of having a baby, and ultimately coming to understand the universal truth that no matter what you plan for, life doesn’t always deliver what’s expected.

“Dark Shadows” (PG-13) — Synopsis: An imprisoned vampire, Barnabas Collins (Johnny Depp,), is set free and returns to his ancestral home, where his dysfunctional descendants are in need of his protection.

 

GOLD TOWN

“Bully” (PG-13) — 7 p.m. Thursday-Sunday; 9:30 p.m. Friday; and 4 p.m. Sunday. Synopsis: “Bully” follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. Stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus. With an intimate glimpse into homes, classrooms, cafeterias and principals’ offices, the film offers insight into the often cruel world of the lives of bullied children.

The Beatles’ ‘Yellow Submarine” (G) — 4 and 9;30 p.m. Saturday. Synopsis: The Beatles are spirited away in the eponymous yellow submarine to save Pepperland from the dreaded Blue Meanies. Along the way, the singing saviors encounter a surreal feast for both the eyes and ears: phantasmagorical creatures, outrageous landscapes, and colors that throb and vibrate to each and every Beatle song on the soundtrack. It’s a drug-free, hallucinogenic journey for the armchair tripper, the peak of which is undoubtedly (and not surprisingly) the “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” sequence.
