Opening this week

"King Kong" (PG-13) - Documentary filmmaker, Carl Denham, sails off to remote Skull Island to film his latest epic with leading lady Ann Darrow.

"The Family Stone" (PG-13) - The eldest son of a New England family brings his girlfriend home for the annual holiday gathering to meet his parents, brothers and sisters.

Before the holidays are over, secrets are revealed, relationships disintegrate and new ones are formed. Dermot Mulroney, Diane Keaton, Sarah Jessica Parker, Claire Danes and Rachel McAdams star.


"The Producers" (PG-13) - A shady Broadway producer and his nerdy accountant plot to overfinance a huge flop and pocket the excess budget, but the show unexpectedly becomes a smash hit. Starring Will Ferrell, Nathan Lane, Matthew Broderick, Uma Thurman and Gary Beach.
