Movies showing in Summit County
CrashShowtimes: 4:05, 6:55 and 9:15 p.m. Friday; 1:05, 4:05, 6:55 and 9:15 p.m. Saturday; 1:05, 4:05 and 6:55 p.m. Sunday; 4:05 and 6:55 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon Paul Haggis delivers a knockout punch that rivals the one he leveled with his Oscar-nominated Million Dollar Baby script. As both writer and director, he weaves a tale of disparate, disconnected Los Angeles residents whose paths cross over a 36-hour period. The encounters expose their prejudices and frailties, but Haggis judges none of them and offers no easy answers; rather, everyone is to blame equally, simply for being human and imperfect. Think of it as a multicultural Magnolia, only without the histrionics. Strong performances abound from an excellent, eclectic cast, including surprising work from Sandra Bullock, Matt Dillon, Michael Pena (from The Shield) and rapper Chris Ludacris Bridges. R for language, sexual content and some violence. 107 min. The Hitchhikers Guide to the GalaxyShowtimes: 4:10, 6:45 and 9 p.m. Friday; 1:15, 4:!0, 6:45 and 9 p.m. Saturday; 1:15, 4:10 and 6:45 p.m. Sunday; 4:10 and 6:45 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon Earthman Arthur Dent is having a very bad day. His house is about to be bulldozed, he discovers that his best friend is an alien and to top things off, Planet Earth is about to be demolished to make way for a hyperspace bypass. Arthurs only chance for survival: hitch a ride on a passing spacecraft. For the novice space traveler, the most astonishing adventure in the universe begins when the world ends. Arthur sets out on a journey in which he finds that nothing is as it seems: He learns that a towel is just the most useful thing in the universe, finds the meaning of life, and discovers that everything he needs to know can be found in one book: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. PG for thematic elements, action and mild language. 110 mins.House of WaxShowtimes: 3:45, 6:50 and 9:45 p.m. Friday; 1:10, 3:45, 6:50 and 9:45 p.m. Saturday; 1:10, 3:45 and 6:50 p.m. Sunday; 3:45 and 6:50 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon A remake in name only of the 1953 3-D movie starring Vincent Price, this occasionally creepy but mostly cliched slasher flick shows that Paris Hilton has found her true calling. She makes the ideal B-movie scream queen, with her blinding blondness and her ability to run through the woods at night wearing a lacy, red bra and panties. Her character is part of a group of college students taking a road trip through the South, where the House of Wax is the famed attraction and deranged rednecks abound. Elisha Cuthbert, Chad Michael Murray and Jared Padalecki are among their good-looking targets. R for horror violence, some sexual content and language. 105 min.The InterpreterShowtimes: 3:50, 6:35 and 9:20 p.m. Friday; 1:05, 3:50, 6:35 and 9:20 p.m. Saturday; 12:15, 3:50 and 6:35 p.m. Sunday; 3:50 and 6:35 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon Nicole Kidman stars as African-born U.N. interpreter Silvia Broome, who inadvertently overhears a death threat against an African head of state scheduled to address the United Nations General Assembly. Realizing shes become a target of the assassins as well, Silvias desperate to thwart the plot … if only she can survive long enough to get someone to believe her. Sean Penn is Tobin Keller, the federal agent charged with protecting the interpreter, who nonetheless suspects she may not be telling the whole truth. Silvia and Tobin, by nature, see life from different points of view: one, a U.N. interpreter, believes in the power and sanctity of words; the other, a Secret Service agent, believes in reading people based on their behavior, no matter what is said. PG-13 for violence, some sexual content and brief strong language. 90 mins.Kingdom of HeavenShowtimes: 3:30, 4, 6:40, 7:15, 9:40 and 10:15 p.m. Friday; 12:15, 12:45, 3:30, 4, 6:40, 7:15, 9:40 and 10:15 p.m. Saturday; 12:15, 12:45, 3:30, 4, 6:40 and 7:15 p.m. Sunday; 3:30, 4, 6:40 and 7:15 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon Ridley Scotts tale of love, honor and intrigue during the Crusades is as impressively vast and immaculately detailed as youd expect from the Oscar-nominated director of Gladiator. The cinematography from Scotts frequent collaborator, John Mathieson, is exquisite almost painterly. But the film feels like its lurching interminably from one visceral combat sequence to the next, until they all blend together. Beneath the long, scraggly hair and patchy facial scruff, Orlando Bloom is all doe-eyed romantic idealism as a blacksmith-turned-reluctant-warrior, though youd scarcely know from watching this movie which takes place between the Second and Third Crusades that the warring was over anything remotely religious. R for strong violence and epic warfare. 144 min.A Lot Like LoveShowtimes: 3:55 p.m. Friday; 1:20 and 3:55 p.m. Saturday and Sunday; 3:55 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon It takes some people years to fall in love at first sight. A Lot Like Love is a romantic comedy about destiny, connection and the frequently fuzzy line between chance friendships and happily ever after. A Lot Like Love traces the relationship of Oliver (Ashton Kutcher) and Emily (Amanda Peet) who met on a flight from Los Angeles to New York seven years ago each of them declaring that they couldn’t be more wrong for each other. PG-13 for sexual content, nudity and language. 107 mins.SaharaShowtimes: 3:35, 6:30 and 9:05 p.m. Friday; 12:30, 3:35, 6:30 and 9:05 p.m. Saturday; 12:30, 3:45 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday; 3:45 and 6:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon Master explorer Dirk Pitt (Matthew McConaughey) takes on the adventure of his life when he embarks on a treasure hunt through some of the most dangerous regions of North Africa. Searching for what locals call The Ship of Death, a long lost Civil War battleship filled with coins, Pitt and his wisecracking sidekick (Steve Zahn) use their wits and clever heroics to help Doctor Eva Rojas (Penelope Cruz) who believes the ship may be linked to mysterious deaths in the very same area. PG-13 for action violence. 127 mins.XXX: State of the UnionShowtimes: 7:05 and 9:10 p.m. Friday; 7:05 and 9:10 p.m. Saturday; 7:05 p.m. Sunday; 7:05 p.m. Monday through Thursday, Skyline Cinema, Dillon NSA Agent August Gibbons, fresh off the success of his last renegade recruitment, once again finds himself in need of an outsider.
