“Judy” plays four days Friday – Monday, Nov. 15 – 18.

Winter 1968 and showbiz legend Judy Garland arrives in Swinging London to perform a five-week, sold-out run at The Talk of the Town.

It is 30 years since she shot to global stardom in “The Wizard of Oz,” but if her voice has weakened, its dramatic intensity has only grown. As she prepares for the show, battles with management, charms musicians and reminisces with friends and adoring fans, her wit and warmth shine through.

Even her dreams of love seem undimmed as she embarks on a whirlwind romance with Mickey Deans, her soon-to-be fifth husband.

Featuring some of her best-known songs, the film celebrates the voice, the capacity for love and the sheer pizzazz of “the world’s greatest entertainer.”

As Garland, Rene Zellweger’s opening number is “By Myself.” This performance-within-a-performance not only captures Garland’s power, but her nervous energy and darting physical tics.

This 118-minute drama biopic is Rated PG-13 for substance abuse, thematic content, some strong language and smoking.

Along the way, they encounter other post-apocalyptic warriors and a group of survivors who find refuge in a commune. The scrappy fighters must now rely on their wits and weapons more than ever as they soon find themselves in a relentless battle against smarter, faster and seemingly indestructible zombies, comic mayhem that stretches from the White House and through the heartland. These four slayers must face off against the many new kinds of zombies that have evolved since the first movie, as well as some new human survivors. But most of all, they have to face the growing pains of their own snarky, makeshift family.

This 99-minute comic adventure horror film is Rated R for bloody violence, language throughout, some drug and sexual content.

“Joker” plays four days, Friday – Monday, Nov. 22 25.

Forever alone in a crowd, failed comedian Arthur Fleck seeks connection as he walks the streets of Gotham City.

Arthur wears two masks — the one he paints for his day job as a clown, and the guise he projects in a futile attempt to feel like he’s part of the world around him.

Isolated, bullied and disregarded by society, Fleck begins a slow descent into madness as he transforms into the criminal mastermind known as the Joker.

Led by Joaquin Phoenix’s ferocious, feral performance, this especially dark, gritty comic book movie is a character drama that’s drawn more toward real-world troubles than to capes and crusading.

Bold, devastating and utterly beautiful, Director Todd Phillips and Joaquin Phoenix have not just re-imagined one of the most iconic villains in cinema history, but the comic book movie itself.

This 122-minute drama thriller is Rated R for strong bloody violence, disturbing behavior, language and brief sexual image.
