“The Grand Budapest Hotel” (R) ­— Synopsis: Recounts the adventures of Gustave H., a legendary concierge at a famous European hotel between the wars, and Zero Moustafa, the lobby boy who becomes his most trusted friend. The story involves the theft and recovery of a priceless Renaissance painting and the battle for an enormous family fortune — all against the backdrop of a suddenly and dramatically changing Continent.

“Boyhood” (R) ­— Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, “Boyhood” is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay’s Yellow to Arcade Fire’s Deep Blue. Boyhood is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting.

Not-So-Silent Film Series: “The Circus” — Charlie Chaplin’s 1928 film, “The Circus” will be accompanied by live music by Rattletrap Ruckus of Bellingham, Wash. In the film, director Chaplin casts star Chaplin in his traditional Little Tramp role, who is on the lam from the law. He takes refuge under the tent of a failing circus. Unintentionally, Charlie disrupts the show’s big clown act, and the crowd roars. The ringmaster decides to hire Charlie as a clown, building the whole circus around him.

The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet.


“Let’s Be Cops” (R) ­— Synopsis: It’s the ultimate buddy cop movie except for one thing: they’re not cops. When two struggling pals dress as police officers for a costume party, they become neighborhood sensations. But when these newly-minted “heroes” get tangled in a real life web of mobsters and dirty detectives, they must put their fake badges on the line.

The Turtles must work with fearless reporter April and her wise-cracking cameraman Vern Fenwick to save the city and unravel Shredder’s diabolical plan.

“The Giver” (PG-13) — Synopsis: In a seemingly perfect community, without war, pain, suffering, differences or choice, a young boy is chosen to learn from an elderly man about the true pain and pleasure of the “real” world.

“Guardians of the Galaxy” (PG-13) — In 2D and 3D. Synopsis: In the far reaches of space, an American pilot named Peter Quill finds himself the object of a manhunt after stealing an orb coveted by the villainous Ronan.
