This Week at the Reel Deal

Reel Deal Theater  

Reel Deal Tuesday’s are back! All movies, all day Tuesday, are only $6.50! Holidays, winter and summer break excluded.

This Friday we are opening St. Vincent and Laggies. We will hold Big Hero 6 and Interstellar for another week.

Book of Life and Nightcrawler will end this Thursday.

We tried to get a print of Dumb and Dumber To but we didn’t make the cut. If it turns out to be a good film we’ll try and get it for a one-week run in the near future.

St. Vincent:  Maggie (McCarthy), a single mother, moves into a new home in Brooklyn with her 12-year old son, Oliver (Lieberher). Forced to work long hours, she has no choice but to leave Oliver in the care of their new neighbor, Vincent (Murray), a retired curmudgeon with a penchant for alcohol and gambling. An odd friendship soon blossoms between the improbable pair. Together with a pregnant stripper named Daka (Watts), Vincent brings Oliver along on all the stops that make up his daily routine – the race track, a strip club, and the local dive bar. Vincent helps Oliver grow to become a man, while Oliver begins to see in Vincent something that no one else is able to: a misunderstood man with a good heart. (C) Weinstein

Laggies: Overeducated and underemployed, 28 year old Megan (Keira Knightley) is in the throes of a quarter-life crisis. Squarely into adulthood with no career prospects, no particular motivation to think about her future and no one to relate to, Megan is comfortable lagging a few steps behind – while her friends check off milestones and celebrate their new grown-up status. When her high-school sweetheart (Mark Webber) proposes, Megan panics and- given an unexpected opportunity to escape for a week – hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year old Annika (Chloë Grace Moretz) and Annika’s world-weary single dad Craig (Sam Rockwell).

Lynn Shelton, whose unique directorial voice created such astutely observed comedies as Your Sister’s Sister and Humpday crafts a sweet, romantic coming-of-age comedy about three people who find their lives intertwined in the most unconventional way as they make through the imperfect realities of modern day life. Keira Knightley shines as Megan, a rare female slacker hero who shows us that while you never stop growing up, you can choose stop lagging, and start living on your terms. (c) A24

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 who use these random sites including Google. For correct show times, visit or use the Los Alamos Daily Post listings for show times. If you have any requests, email me at and I will respond when I know something.

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