In Theaters. It started out as a simple week — two mainstream titles (including one potential juggernaut) and three art titles. Then one of the titles (the less likely) decided it needed a Wednesday opening for reasons that are anybody’s guess, since neither the date, nor the movie is special. Oh, but it didn’t end […]
Outdoor and adventure art-themes 5Point Film Festive comes to Asheville in August and a number of free screenings are scheduled around WNC.
In Theaters. It’s crapshoot week at the movies where the mainstream is concerned — and I kind of like it. The folks who like to tell us what a movie will make days before it opens appear to be completely flummoxed by the week’s three big — well, big-ish — offerings, which is to say […]
Now that Jurassic World and Inside Out have finally been brought down by some pretty unlikely competition, things settle down a little this week.
This week in local moviemaking, Asheville 48 Hour Film Project winners are named, a new silent film series launches and WCU’s Controlled Chaos Film Festival screens student work.
The big question on everyone’s mind — or so I’m told — is whether or not Der Arnold can take down those dinosaurs that have been ruling box office for three weeks.
In Theaters. When the biggest thing — mainstream at least — this week is a Melissa McCarthy spy comedy you know that you’re still a week away from CGI dinosaurs. It is not, however, your only option. There are two other mainstream options — and two art titles. Frankly, I’d lean toward the art titles […]
In Theaters. So Der Arnold couldn’t take down either dinosaurs or animated emotions. I’m not sure what that tells us, but I feel certain it tells us something. Possibly it tells us that…no, that can’t be it…I mean Jurassic World takes a supposedly beloved series, puts a newish spin on it, and draws crowds. I […]
In Theaters. Though there are three new movies opening this week, no one really expects to dethrone Jurassic World — a film that could be called the Saviour of the Summer — but I expect Pixar hopes to worry it a little. Otherwise, we have one art title and one film that probably should have […]
No battle of the titans in the mainstream this week, only a minor tussle between less high-call titles, but there’s also one good art title and one spectacularly good one, making the week more interesting than it might have been.
By early 2016, the Grail Moviehouse is set to open in downtown Asheville at 45 South French Broad Ave. Plans and construction have begun on a two-screen space with a combined total of roughly 250 seats where Steve White and his partner Davida Horwitz are planning on booking mainstream films, a variety of classics, documentaries and art films.
This week’s roundup includes summer film series and special screenings. There’s also a locally scored showing of David Lynch’s Eraserhead.
If it weren’t for the “art” titles, this is the sort of movie weekend that the pages of history teach us might be better spent in bed (or even under the bed). The good news is that there are more movies headed our way on July 1 — not that they look all that much more inspiring.
This week’s roster includes summer movie screenings and a youth filmmaking camp offered by NYS3.
We only get two movies this week — one so mainstream that it hardly needs mentioning, and one art title you may have heard of, but I’m not betting on it. Before we get down to cases here, it’s worth noting that the summer has not been the world-beater that was expected.
This week in local film, the Directors Series continues at Carolina Cinemas, Asheville School of Film offers a summer filmmaking course for teens and a local inventor launches the RunPee app.
Learn more about the Wild & Scenic Film Festival, a night of local hip-hop music videos at Timo’s House, a special screening of Wings of Life, and a film project by JT Timmons.
It’s the week of the “official” beginning of the summer blockbuster season. That means you can expect to see the season’s first Next Big Thing all over the place, but that is not quite the only thing opening locally this week.
In Theaters. Another week, another five movies — and nothing that appears to offer a serious threat to Furious 7. Word is that the Big Opener this week is going to be Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2. (How depressing is that?) But no one has yet to claim it will knock Furious 7 to curb. […]

In Theaters. On the one hand, there’s probably nothing bigger than Dwayne Johnson and an earthquake, but on the other hand, this week — like last week — is a little shy on the really high call summer items. The next one of those isn’t due till June 12. This is only the Sort of […]
