This Weekend in Theaters: Full House at Belcourt, Fill the Void at Green Hills

Posted By on Thu, Jul 11, 2013 at 6:47 PM

The Belcourt continues its current pace, it'll be showing more movies on its two screens than Regal's 100 Oaks megaplex is on its 27. In addition to first-runs Much Ado About Nothing and 20 Feet From Stardom — the latter hosting a Sunday Q&A after the 5:25 p.m. show with backup singers Kim Parent, Marcia Ramirez and Britt Savage, moderated by Bill Lloyd — the theater serves up nearly a dozen repertory, indie and midnight titles this week.

On Friday and Saturday, the theater's midnight run of '80s sequels continues with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze. Saturday brings two shows only, 10 a.m. for kids and 11:40 p.m. for adults, of the 4K digital restoration of the 1988 Ron Howard-George Lucas fantasy Willow, with Val Kilmer, Warwick Davis and a ruthless villain named for Pauline Kael.

Not only does the theater wrap up its Ray Harryhausen salute with a Saturday and Sunday double feature of The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms and Mysterious Island, but at dusk Saturday evening it offers a free outdoor screening of Harryhausen's last film, the 1981 fantasy Clash of the Titans.

Then, Monday and Tuesday only, get shaken and stirred by Hey Bartender, a fizzy doc about the rise of the craft cocktail featuring "the most famous bartenders in the world." Do they flip their shakers like Tom Cruise in Cocktail? It'll cost ya $8.25 to find out.

• Opening at Green Hills: Rama Burshtein's award-winning Israeli drama Fill the Void, with Hadas Yaron as an 18-year-old Orthodox Jewish girl whose older sister's death pushes her toward a romantic entanglement with her late sibling's husband (Yiftach Klein).

• Making its Nashville premiere Friday for a run at Carmike Hickory 8: the Christian apocalypse thriller Revelation Road 2: The Sea of Glass and Fire. From the press release: "In Revelation Road 1, traveling salesman Josh McManus (actor David A.R. White) stops at a rural convenience store and immediately the store is robbed by a local biker gang (Brian Bosworth and Steve 'Sting' Borden). Josh stops the robbery but has made enemies with the rest of the biker gang, who are now out to get him. As he tries to make his way home to his wife and baby, catastrophic events start happening. The United States is at war with Iran and people start disappearing. The stage is set for a titanic duel as the world hurtles towards the biblical time of prophesy, the Rapture. Will he make it back home in time?"
