In with the New at Fifth Avenue


Fifth Avenue Cinemas has three new movies in the house this week just in time for a rainy weekend. Showtimes are available here.

In Bruges

Bruges, the most well-preserved medieval city in the whole of Belgium, is a welcoming destination for travellers from all over the world. But for hit men Ray and Ken, it could be their final destination; a difficult job has resulted in the pair being ordered right before Christmas by their London boss Harry to go and cool their heels in the storybook Flemish city for a couple of weeks.

Rated: 18A: Frequent coarse language; violence.

The Bank Job

A car dealer with a dodgy past and new family, Terry has always avoided major-league scams. But when Martine, a beautiful model from his old neighborhood, offers him a lead on a foolproof bank hit on London’s Baker Street, Terry recognizes the opportunity of a lifetime. Martine targets a roomful of safe deposit boxes worth millions in cash and jewelry. But Terry and his crew don’t realize the boxes also contain a treasure trove of dirty secrets – secrets that will thrust them into a deadly web of corruption and illicit scandal that spans London’s criminal underworld, the highest echelons of the British government, and the Royal Family itself…the true story of a heist gone wrong…in all the right ways.

Director: Roger Donaldson
Cast: Jason Statham, Saffron Burrows, Stephen Campbell Moore
Rated: 14A: Sexually suggestive scenes; nudity; violence.

Under The Same Moon

Nine-year-old Carlos is one of the countless Mexican children left behind by parents who come to the U.S. seeking a way to provide for their families. When the death of his grandmother leaves young Carlos alone, he takes his fate into his own hands and heads north across the border to find his mother.
