Other movies playing

Kinsey (Bavme sa o sexe) - Drama by Bill Condon. This biopic of scientist/sex revolutionary Alfred Kinsey, which features Liam Neeson in the title role, may underline the cultural importance of its subject, but it fails to offer much insight into his personality.

White Noise(Hlas smrti) - Thriller by Geoffrey Sax. Michael Keaton plays Jonathan Rivers, a comfortable architect left devastated by the death of his wife Anna (Chandra West). After meeting a man who claims to be in contact with Anna via electronic equipment, Jonathan obsessively tries to communicate with his dead wife and unwittingly puts himself in touch with many other people from beyond the grave.

The Island(Ostrov) - Sci-Fi Action by Michael Bay. The flashiest of the big summer blockbuster directors, Michael Bay (Armageddon, Bad Boys, Pearl Harbor), returns with a paranoid vision of the future.
