Movie Lounge – June 1

The week’s 10 best movie bets, ranked by how much they might be worth seeing. The bad news is that the Cable Car Cinema is closing on Sunday. The good news is that the Rustic Tri View Drive-In now has all three screens running again, after one got damaged in a storm over the winter.
