Sometimes a movie screens for one night only, and sometimes it shows for weeks or months. That's why when it comes to moviegoing, planning ahead is crucial.

Planners that we are, we've selected five must-see flicks screening in the Valley this month. Stock up on your preferred salty, sweet snacks and check out our picks ...

5. Moonrise Kingdom
After premiering at Cannes and seeing strong ticket sales during its stateside select-cities debut, Wes Anderson's latest film, Moonrise Kingdom, makes its way to Arizona this week. Visually it is unmistakably Anderson, taking place in a manicured, highly detailed seaside town, and captures the romantic journey of two 12-year-olds who've decided to run off together -- abandoning their previously unexciting lives and parents.

The film opens Friday, June 8, at Camelview.

Moonrise Kingdom looks insanely good. Wes Anderson should be in charge of everything. Please and thank you.


I haven't been to the theater in ages. I am looking forward to the new Batman movie. I haven't seen a preview, but Dark Knight was incredible. What was the last movie you saw?
