Film Picks

Staff WriterMay 29, 2009 

  • Later in the week, the Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary gets a jump-start on the whole outdoor-movies-in-the-Triangle thing (beating the N.C. Museum of Art's usual, open-air cinema season, which starts June 5), when it begins its "Movies by Moonlight" series on Thursday. The first movie out the gate is last year's James Bond flick "Quantum of Solace" (aka the James Bond flick critics didn't like because it wasn't Bond-ish enough, but actually isn't that bad). The movie starts at dusk, but the gates and box office open at 7. Tickets are $3 (free for kids 12 and under). Details: 462-2052; www.boothamphitheatre.com/movies.htm.

The Carolina Theatre in Durham is still in the cinematic thick of it, with its Summer Repertory Film Series.

This week's double feature is all about Robert De Niro. The theater will show two films featuring his most iconic performances: as Travis Bickle in Martin Scorsese's "Taxi Driver" (1976) and as Al Capone in Brian De Palma's "The Untouchables" (1987). The bill plays from Sunday through Wednesday, and starts at 7:10, with a Sunday matinee at 2:10. Tickets are $10 ($8 for Star members). Details: 560-3030; www.carolinatheatre.org/onscreen/index.html.
