Acclaimed Best Picture Oscar-winning drama focuses on the difficult life and troubled times of Chiron, an impoverished product of the ‘80s-era Miami slums forced to come to terms with both his raising by a crack-addicted, abusive single mother (Naomie Harris) and his struggles with his own sexuality.

Doctor Strange

Gifted but arrogant neurosurgeon Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch) lost the use of his hands in a devastating car wreck…and his desperate hunt for treatment brought him to a Tibetan lamasery presided over by the mysterious Ancient One (Tilda Swinton). As the skeptic gives himself over to the study of dimension-spanning magic, he proves a natural…but will he have learned enough to stop the world-ending threat of rebel acolyte Kaecilius (Mads Mikkelsen)? Visually spectacular screen bow for Marvel’s Sorcerer Supreme co-stars Chiwetel Ejiofor, Rachel McAdams, Benedict Wong.

Shut In

During a violent snowstorm, recently widowed psychologist Mary Portman (Naomi Watts) holes up in her secluded New England home with her stepson (Charlie Heaton), who’s been wheelchair-bound and unresponsive since being injured in the accident that killed his father. When one of her patients, a deaf child named Tom (Jacob Tremblay), goes missing, Mary begins to suspect the boy may be hiding in her house. Is Tom behind a series of bizarre occurrences or is Mary’s mind playing tricks? Oliver Platt co-stars in this gripping suspenser.

Contract to Kill

When the government finds evidence of a heinous nexus between Islamic extremists and a Mexican drug cartel, retired CIA operative John Harmon (Steven Seagal) is asked to arm up one more time. Leading his small task force into Istanbul, Harmon must find a way to sever this unholy alliance before death makes its way through our boarders. Sensational Seagal shoot-’em-up co-stars Russell Wong, Jemma Dallender, Sergiu Costache.


A superb performance by Tim Roth drives this powerful, emotionally-charged drama. While working with the terminally ill patients he cares for, in-home nurse David Wilson (Roth) is fiercely dedicated to his job. But as he battles chronic depression outside of work, David comes to realize that the time he spends with his charges is just as important to him as it is to them. Bitsie Tulloch, Sarah Sutherland, Rachel Pickup, Michael Cristofer also star in this Mexican/French production.

Rules Don’t Apply

In ‘50s L.A., Frank Forbes (Alden Ehrenreich)–an aspiring real estate developer who though he’d get his start as a gofer for Howard Hughes (Warren Beatty, who directed and co-wrote)–was assigned to chauffeur new RKO contract starlet Marla Mabrey (Lily Collins). Their immediate attraction, and the challenges they faced from their boss’s non-fraternization policy (as well as his emerging eccentricities), propel this wistful comedy-drama; Matthew Broderick, Annette Bening, Candice Bergen, Alec Baldwin also star.
