Only Lovers Left Alive
Auteur Jim Jarmusch's take on vampires is unsurprisingly Twilight averse. Starring Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers) and Tilda Swinton (We Need to Talk About Kevin, Moonrise Kingdom), the romantic drama centers on the a pair of eternal bloodsuckers named Adam and Eve and how they survive in the shadows of society -- and miles apart. Adam's depression reunites the couple, but sunny days aren't exactly ahead.
As of this writing, the film is scheduled to open Friday, May 9, at Harkins Camelview 5. However, the opening has been pushed back twice before.
It was 10 years ago that we had ourselves a Lindsay Lohan so full of promise that she passed as a cool, vaguely upstanding role model for youngish girls. Now? Not so much. But we can relive those brief yet splendid days with a screening of what's arguably Lohan's best film: the Tina Fey-penned Mean Girls.
As part of its School's Out Film Series, FilmBar screens the seminal high school comedy at 9:15 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, promising a ladies night replete with wine coolers and protein bars (because, hate to break it to you, Kalteen Bars are not a thing). Tickets are $12 to the 21-and-over event and available via www.thefilmbarphx.com. Long live Janis Ian.Next Page
