Creepy Muppets at the Parkway, Esteemed 2021 Indies at the Walker, and the Rest of This Week’s Complete Movie Listings

New stuff! Old stuff! Every movie that's in theaters right now. Plus jokes.

Universal; A24

I've been compiling these movie listings for a few months now, tucking them away at the bottom of our weekly film reviews like a little hidden prize buried in a cereal box. Then I reconsidered and decided, why not let them shine in a post of their own? Not everyone wants to eat a whole box of cereal!

Just to get you oriented here, I compile three kinds of listings, the most fun of which are the "special screenings," which will cover all the theaters showing older or more offbeat stuff. This week, for instance, the Walker's annual showcase of Film Independent's Spirit Awards nominees continues (your chance to catch my fave C'mon C'mon if you missed it).

We'll also let you know what's opening and what's still showing. (Good news on that front: The Riverview is apparently back to screening recent second-run flicks.)
