Metro Weekly

Opening today: Poltergeist and Tomorrowland

Poltergeist 2015


The remake of the ’80s horror flick pits a family against spirits who invade their home and kidnap their daughter. If anyone can outdo Tobe Hooper’s original, it’s producer Sam Raimi, who hired Gil Kenan (Monster House) to direct. Area theaters. Visit



Inspired by the eponymous themed area of Disney’s parks, Brad Bird’s film sends a teen (Britt Robertson) and a boy-genius inventor (George Clooney) to a world where anything is possible, but their actions have direct consequences on the world around them. No word on if you’ll need a FastPass to see the ending before everyone else. Area theaters. Visit
