Cineplex has a couple of free screenings of Rear Window at Dartmouth Crossing coming up in its Classic Film Series—in a break from form, the tickets are free (instead of the usual modest six bucks), but the catch is that you have to pick up tickets at the box office in person.
The new Noah Baumbach Mistress America has moved in at the Oxford, displacing British World War I drama Testament of Youth, now screening at Park Lane.
Fundy Film Society has three screenings this week, most notably this Sunday: Maya Forbes’ directorial debut Infinitely Polar Bear, starring Mark Ruffalo. The King’s Theatre Society in Annapolis Royal has What We Did On Our Holiday on Tuesday.
