Movie Lounge – April 6

Movie Lounge is a feature at Law And Order Party where we list ten movies screening this week that we might not have actually seen but which we’re presenting as a ranked list, anyway, based on how much they might be worth checking out.

Two other movie events of note: on Saturday, April 7 the Providence Children’s Film Festival is hosting their annual Adults Only Movie Night fundraiser, featuring actual submissions that would never belong in a children’s film festival. Also, the Ivy League Film Festival happens at Brown from April 9-15. Most of the feature films are already sold out, so that’s why they’re not listed here, but there might be tickets available for other programming.

**At the moment Regal Cinemas Swansea – and for that matter the whole Regal Cinemas chain – is owned by Anschutz Entertainment Group, which I don’t recommend supporting. But the chain was recently sold and the transition is supposed to happen by March.
