Sometimes a movie screens for one night only, and other times it shows for weeks, even months. That's why when it comes to Valley 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.
Farewell, My Queen @ Harkins Camelview
Benoît Jacquot's adaptation of Chantal Thomas' novel, Les adieux à la reine, finds Marie Antoinette (Diane Kruger) and her court on the cusp of the French Revolution. The historical fiction is seen through the eyes of infatuated lady in waiting Sidonie (Léa Seydoux), whose affection for the queen makes her question the motives of the revolutionaries.
Showtimes begin at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, August 11, and continue at Harkins Camelview. Adult tickets are $7 to $9.50.
