Now that everyone's gotten through the holidays and the new year and exchanged all of their unwanted gifts and bought all of that stuff that went on sale and relaxed with their families and gorged themselves on delicious, decadent food, it's time once again to take a look at the best way to work off all of that end-of-year indulgence: by sitting in a movie theater. Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of programmers spent more time watching movies than setting up screenings for them, which is why this week's offerings are fairly anemic, at least until the film festivals get cranked up.

But before we get to the stuff we think you should see elsewhere in the country, we would like to remind you to please leave comments and send in emails (leads AT with any suggestions you may have for events, screenings, or other opportunities film fans may have to share with others in their celebration of the medium. Also, when and if you attend any of the events listed below, please let us know about your experiences, and let the organizers know where you found out about it!
