Planes, Trains and Automobiles. You've probably sat next to some less-than-ideal people on planes, trains and automobiles throughout your life, but when Neal Page finds himself stuck next to a garrulous, gauche shower-curtain-ring salesman (who stole his taxi, no less!) on a plane ride, he doesn't think it can get any worse. The two soon find themselves on a whirlwind of different transportation methods as they try to make it home for Thanksgiving, facing burglars, fires and every delay you can imagine. See it at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 21, at Harkins Tucson Spectrum, 5455 S Calle Santa Cruz, and Harkins Arizona Pavilions, 5755 W Arizona Pavilions Drive, at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 21.

Cult Classic. "We are sex Bob-Omb and we are here to make you think about death and get sad and stuff." So says the lovably awkward protagonist and title character in Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. When Pilgrim (Michael Cera) meets the girl of his dreams, he must battle her seven deadly exes to win her heart, facing villainous vegans, sinister skateboarders and nefarious ninjas. The movie is filled with classic lines, and the video game-inspired plot makes the film unlike anything else. Showing at 10 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 17 and Saturday, Nov. 18.

Human Flow. Since World War II, our planet hasn't been faced with a mass migrant crisis like the one we're currently challenged with. More than 65 million people are currently displaced by war and climate change. Not only from the Middle East, but Bangladesh and Central America as well. The challenging future is knocking on the doors of the world's nations: how will we respond? Screening begins Nov. 17.

Parents. Growing up, your folks probably cooked some meals you weren't too excited about. What was it? Brussel sprouts? Spinach casserole? Tuna salad? Just be glad your parents weren't serving up human remains. This campy horror flick confirms all our childhood nightmares: Our parents really are psychopathic killers and they're having some friends for dinner. Monday, Nov. 20 at 8 p.m.

Boyz n the Hood. Ever had a problem enjoying hip-hop? Couldn't get over the vocal delivery or bombastic beats? This movie may help bridge the gap. It's the story of three young men growing up in the ghettos of L.A., with all the motifs and plot points of rap music, but translated into a multi-Oscar nominated film. Tuesday, Nov. 21, at 7:30 p.m.
