(Many) Downtown Movies Closing This Week

Scramble, movie fans, as there is a lot of turnover in the downtown theaters this week.

Cinemapolis is cleaning its slate completely. Gone on Friday are "Iraq For Sale", "Little Miss Sunshine", and "U.S. Versus John Lennon".

"Iraq For Sale" was a special, limited presentation with the Tompkins County Workers Center (see previous post). It is a fundraiser for the Center. Admission is $8.00. Ithaca Hours provided a grant for the showing, and Hours are accepted 100% for admission. 7:15 pm showings only.

"Little Miss Sunshine" is moving across town to Fall Creek Cinema. Hopefully the same might happen to "U.S. Versus John Lennon", which seemed to be here a woefully short time (that means, we like John Lennon, and we missed it).

Replacing these films at Cinemapolis will be "Catch A Fire" and "Running With Scissors".

Leaving Fall Creek Cinema is "Shortbus", which the New York Times praises as "an ode to the joy and sweet release of sex", which makes one wonder why it isn't showing still. "Infamous", another movie about Truman Capote (somehow) arrives on Friday. "The Science of Sleep" remains, and we will leave you to ponder the relative popularity, then, of sex and sleep.
