It’s a Beautiful Day, the Theaters Are Open, and Here’s What You Can See on the Big Screen

Pretty much all the movies you can watch in Twin Cities theaters this week.

Promotional still

Yes, Jaws, of course. (And Jaws 3D, if you prefer your sharks poppin' out of the screen.) Also plenty of Christopher Nolan, in the big run-up to Oppenheimer. And, as they say, much, much more.
