What would Valentine’s be without some drama? In the musical The Last Five Years, a struggling actress (Anna Kendrick) and her boyfriend (Jeremy Jordan) have very differing perspectives as they look back on the last five years of their relationship. Click here for showtimes.
If you’re looking for some laughs, grab your passes to What We Do in the Shadows; a comedy showcasing the struggles, fears, hopes and dreams of three vampires trying to get by in modern society. Click here for showtimes.
If vampires aren’t your thing, check out The Voices, a comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Gemma Arterton, Anna Kendrick and Jacki Weaver. Under the care of his psychiatrist (Weaver), Jerry (Reynolds) is under a strict regimen of antipsychotics for his mental health problem. When he stops taking his meds, he begins to hear voices; like his cat telling him he’s idiotic and unlovable. To prove his cat wrong, he asks his co-worker Fiona (Arterton) out on a dinner date that doesn’t go quite as planned. For showtimes, click here.
