This Week at the Reel Deal

Column by JIM O’DONNELL                                 
Reel Deal Theater

This week we are opening Son of God. We are getting a lot of requests, especially for the Sunday matinee, so get your tickets early. The run time for this film is 2:18, so it will not have a late show Friday or Saturday.

Yes, we will be holding Philomena for another week. This week it gets a full schedule every day, every show time. Lego also will hold for another week.

Sunday evening, March 2, the 86th Academy Awards will air. We have room for a one week run, so we are bringing back American Hustle, as we feel it may have a golden night on Sunday. We also are opening 300: Rise of an Empire at 8 p.m. Thursday, March 6.

Upcoming special, one-time screenings:

  • 4 p.m. Sunday, March 9: Jewish Film Festival. We will be screening the critically acclaimed film, Precious Life, A story of compassion among enemies and cruelty among neighbors set against the backdrop of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
  • 7 p.m. Wednesday,  March 12: Rising from the Ashes, afeature-length documentary about two worlds colliding, when cycling legend Jock Boyer moves to Rwanda, Africa to help a group of struggling genocide survivors pursue their dream of a national team. As they set out against impossible odds, both Jock and the team find new purpose as they rise from the ashes of their past.

On March 6, we will open 300: Rise of an Empire. On March 7, we will open Mr. Peabody and Sherman, 3D.

Coming attractions include: Divergent, Muppets Most Wanted, 300: Rise of an Empire, Son of God, Mr. Peabody and Sherman 3D, Island of Lemurs: Madagascar and Rio 2.

I’m having trouble deciding on Need For Speed. The only reason I’m considering it is because Aaron Paul, who played Jesse in Breaking Bad is in the lead role. What do you think? 

Don’t forget, if it’s your birthday, the movie of your choice is free!

If you have any requests, please email me at  and I will respond when I know something. Any feedback from all of you would be appreciated. After all, this is your theater in your town.

Don’t forget, if it’s your birthday, the movie of your choice is free!

Note:  Do not trust other websites for Reel Deal Theater movie times as they are often incorrect and we’ve been getting a lot of confused patrons lately who use these random sites including Google. For correct show times, please go to our website or use the Los Alamos Daily Post listings for show times.
