Movies to See This (Post-Vic) Weekend

Tomorrowland – Directed by Brad Bird, Tomorrowland focuses on the bond between a man named Frank and an adventurous teen named Casey. The two share the same interest in a scientific discovery that leads them to a mysterious place known as Tomorrowland. Their discoveries cause the world and the two of them to change an awful lot. Seems very similar to classic Disney films and is billed as a movie for the whole family.

Poltergeist – A horror film that combines the genius work of filmmaker Sam Raimi and director Gil Kenan. A family’s home gets possessed by evil spirits which take the youngest daughter hostage. The rest of the family must team up to save her from these deadly beings.

Since there aren’t many movies coming out this weekend, here are some film festivals to check out, depending where you live:
