Sometimes a movie screens for one night only, and sometimes it shows for weeks, even months, on end. 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 prep yourself for those icy cold theaters ...

5. Beasts of the Southern Wild at Harkins Camelview
Benh Zeitlin's bayou fantasy drama Beasts of the Southern Wild is the story of a young girl named Hushpuppy (Quvenzhané Wallis) on a high-tides journey to find her lost mother after her father, Wink (Dwight Henry), falls ill. Reviews have been glowing, which doesn't always give rise to must-see status. But that the imaginative work took home the Caméra d'Or prize at Cannes and Sundance's Grand Jury award for drama makes it worthy of a trip to the theater.

Beasts opens on Friday, July 13, at Camelview. Get tickets, $9.50 for adults, through Harkins website or by calling 480-947-8778.
