Movie Lounge – August 3

The week’s 10 best movie bets, ranked by how much they might be worth seeing. The Rhode Island International Film Festival starts on August 7, and while their website is a little complicated there are some decent-sounding films screening. One other movie worth mentioning: Five and a half months after its initial release, Black Panther is currently only playing on about 15 screens nationally, but it’s been playing steadily at the $3 theater in East Providence for months now. But! There’s a free outdoor screening in Providence at Joslin Park on Wednesday 8/8 at 8pm.
