A New (Old) Movie Theater Has (Re)Opened

Plus listings of pretty much every movie you can see in the Twin Cities this week.

Forgot to mention some big local movie theater news last week: The former Landmark Edina Cinema has reopened officially as the Edina 4, under the ownership of the local Mann Theaters chain. If you’ve ever wanted to hear your grandparents talk confusedly through Bros, now’s your chance! (Seriously though, I’m excited by this news, and can’t wait to visit.)
