New Year’s Eve Nationwide The latest from Garry Marshall follows the lives of several romances in New York during the last day of the year. The romantic comedy is the follow-up to the director’s highly popular “Valentine’s Day” released last year, though none of the same characters remain. Opens 12/9 The Sitter Nationwide David Gordon Green continues his chain of comedies (“Pineapple Express,” “Your Highness”) with “The Sitter,” an unofficial re-imagining of the ’80s classic “Adventures in Babysitting.” Jonah Hill plays a suspended college student who takes on a babysitting gig that turns into one crazy night. This highly anticipated comedy is one that the Buzzbin staff has been waiting for all year. Opens 12/9 The Autobiography of Nicolae Ceausescu Cleveland Cinematheque One of the most acclaimed films of the past two years. The rise, reign and fall of longtime Romanian dictator Nicolae Ceausescu is seen exclusively through propaganda footage culled from a thousand hours of official newsreels, TV broadcasts and home movies. Thursday, 12/8 at 6:45 p.m. Sunday, 12/11 at 6:45 p.m. The Man Nobody Knew: In Search of my Father, CIA Spymaster William Colby Cleveland Cinematheque William Colby was a gutsy OSS officer during WWII and a veteran of covert CIA operations in postwar Europe and Vietnam, becoming Director of Central Intelligence from 1973 to 1976. So why did this ever-secretive civil servant open up to Congress in the mid-1970s and admit to illegal intelligence-gathering activities, thus assuring his ouster? Colby’s son Carl tries to figure out his often remote and inscrutable dad. Friday, 12/9 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, 12/10 at 9:30 p.m. Silent Souls Cleveland Cinematheque In this haunting and moving Russian road movie, two men transport the body of one man’s beloved young wife hundreds of miles through central Russia. Their destination is a lake where the pagan burial rituals of the couple’s ancient Merjan heritage can be carried out. Along the way the grieving widower regales his companion with intimate stories of his life, but the trip has its own melancholy resonance for this fellow traveler. Friday, 12/9 at 9:35 p.m. Saturday, 12/10 at 7:55 p.m. Marriage Italian Style/The Temptation of Dr. Antonio Cleveland Cinematheque Marcello Mastroianni and Sophia Loren star in “Marriage Italian Style,” the spicy tale of a prostitute who has spent more than 20 years as the paramour and employee of a slick, successful, single businessman and playboy. She schemes to become his wife. Preceding “Marriage Italian Style” at showtime will be “The Temptation of Dr. Antonio,” Fellini’s 53-minute segment from the 1962 portmanteau film “Boccaccio ’70.” Fellini’s contribution, his first color film, focuses on a prissy, self-appointed moral watchdog who strenuously objects to a neighborhood billboard featuring busty Anita Ekberg (La Dolce Vita) encouraging people to “drink more milk.” Imagine his surprise when the giant goddess comes alive.
