Movie Lounge – November 23

Movie Lounge – November 23

Shaking up the format this week. Still 10 or 11 movies for you to keep on your radar, but I’ve separated out the one-off specialty screenings from the mainstream, playing-five-times-a-day-every-day-this-week types of movies. I’ve also added an 11th film, one you might want to check out before it slips away from theaters.

Note: at one reader’s request, FREE! screenings are now more prominently highlighted in blue. If you have any thoughts on how to make the Movie Lounge better, drop a line to
