Oedipus Rex Cleveland Cinematheque Douglas Rain and William Shatner are two of the performers in this film version of a famous 1950s stage production of Sophocles’ tragedy directed by Tyrone Guthrie for the Stratford Ontario Shakespearean Festival. Using the W.B. Yeats’ translation of the play, Guthrie places his actors behind painted masks, as the ancient Greeks did, giving the performance an almost ritualistic quality. The play itself tells of a king who unknowingly murders his father and marries his mother.

(“Outrage 2” is already in the works.) Kitano (aka Beta Takeshi) also stars in this tale of an all-out Yakuza war, which is told with his distinctive blend of bloodletting, filmic poetry, and droll comedy. Thur, 02/23 at 8:35 p.m. Saturday, 02/25 at 9 p.m. Act of Valor Nationwide While the film is based on true events, don’t expect this picture to fall into any typical cliche. Act of Valor stars real life active-duty navy seals as fictional characters who set out on a covert mission to save a kidnapped CIA agent. This clever idea already has us intrigued regardless of how well its executed. Opens 02/24 Gone Nationwide When her sister disappears, Jill (Amanda Seyfried) is convinced the serial killer who kidnapped her sister has returned, and she sets out to once again face her abductor. Opens 02/24 Tyler Perry’s Good Deeds Nationwide A wealthy man in a healthy relationship finds himself in a predicament when he begins to have feelings for a down-on-her-luck single mom right before he is set to get married. Gabrielle Union and Thandie Newton join filmmaker Tyler Perry in this sure-to-be box office success. Opens 02/24 Wanderlust Nationwide David Wain follows-up his highly successful blockbuster breakout “Role Models” with yet another film co-written with “The State” co-star Ken Marino. Paul Rudd and Jennifer Aniston star as a Manhattan couple who decide to leave the busy city for life in a rural commune. Wain has yet to disappoint us so we can expect yet another hysterically smart comedy here. One of the most anticipated comedies of the year. Opens 02/24 The Gold Rush Cleveland Cinematheque Now in a new 35mm restoration with a newly recorded orchestral score of Chaplin’s own music, this great comedy classic features Chaplin’s Little Tramp as a gold prospector in the frozen Yukon, battling bears, the elements, and hunger, while falling in love with a dance hall girl.
