This Friday is the beginning of our spring break here in Los Alamos so we have put together an awesome line-up for our students as well as additional showtimes every day. On Friday we’re opening It Follows which is reportedly the scariest horro film to hit the screen in years and has been getting 9.5 out 10 from the critics.

Furious 7 also opens on Friday. This is the last Furious film, shot before Paul  Walker’s untimely death in November 2013 In an auto accident. Furious is also receiving great reviews.

For the younger kids we will hold Home for another week and The Divergent Series: Insurgent. The Second Best Marigold Hotel and Cinderella will end this Thursday.

It Follows is unanimously considered to be the most frightening films on the big screen in many years. It has won multiple international awards and was nominated at the Cannes Film Festival in 2014. I strongly recommended that you don’t go alone to see this film. It is rated R and contains all the ingredients for that genre of film. Reviewer Matt Glasby says and I quote, “VERDICT: A horror film that will haunt your waking hours for weeks. Every frame of It Follows is stamped with nameless dread.”

Furious 7: Continuing the global exploits in the unstoppable franchise built on speed, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker and Dwayne Johnson lead the returning cast of Fast & Furious 7. James Wan directs this chapter of the hugely successful series that also welcomes back favorites Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Tyrese Gibson, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Elsa Pataky and Lucas Black. They are joined by international action stars new to the franchise including Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Ronda Rousey and Kurt Russell.~ RT

The Divergent Series: Insurgent raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.
