The Yes Men (Yesmeni) - Documentary by Sarah Price, Chris Smith, and Dan Ollman. Directed by the makers of the hilarious American Movie, this film trails two political activist pranksters who pose as members of the World Trade Organization (WTO) at a number of international trade meetings. They use their mistaken identities to humiliate the WTO and therefore fight globalization.


The Company- Drama by Robert Altman. Legendary Hollywood outsider Robert Altman turns his ensemble drama sensibility to the ballet world. Former dancer Neve Campbell plays Ry, a talented newcomer at a prestigious ballet troupe in Chicago. Malcolm McDowell stars as the company's director, James Franco stars as the love interest, and a number of actual ballet dancers round out the cast.


Other movies playing


XXX 2: The Next Level(XXX 2: Druhá dimenzia) - Action by Lee Tamahori. Though Vin Diesel was busy softening his image with family movies, Columbia Pictures was determined to make a sequel to the wildly successful (and, except for Asia Argento, the incredibly boring) XXX. So they cast Ice Cube instead of Diesel and turned the focus from European espionage to American treason. Secretary of Defense George Deckert plans to assassinate the US president and overthrow the government. But Augustus Gibbons (Samuel L Jackson) of the National Security Agency aims to stop him. So he springs the fearless and dangerous Darius Stone (Ice Cube) from jail to bow things up and stop the coup.
