MovieDescription
The Busy Body
Released: 1967
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Hapless hero is bedeviled by angry gangsters, wandering corpse and an endless parade of standup comics. Unusual fare for Z-Movie maestro William Castle. (M.W.)

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Cabin in the Woods
Released: 2012

Now Playing? No
A veteran operator for an emergency call-center, Jordan (Halle Berry) saves lives daily as part of her job, but when a young woman's frantic report of a prowler ends tragically, Jordan is devastated. She decides to pack it in on the front lines and -- instead -- teach others the ropes of the high-pressure job. But when a call from a kidnapped teen (Abigail Breslin) comes in, Jordan takes charge as never before and turns the girl into a partner in helping to save her life. (TMS)

The Cameraman's Revenge and Other Fantastic Tales
Released: 1912
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Campaign
Released: 2012
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A supremely unqualified incumbent (Will Ferrell) faces an earnest patsy (Zach Galifianakis) in a political campaign fueled by pure crudeness. The movie has some terrific over-the-top moments, though it’s less successful with its commentary on the nature of the American political process. (S.R.)
The Canary Murder Case
Released: 1929
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Cannonball Run
Released: 1982
Rated:
Now Playing? No
This is the same damn movie Hal Needham and Burt Reynolds have been making since 1977: another "road hog special" with Burt and his campy sidekick rattling along at three-digit speeds, ogling busty women, needling each other, out dueling their opponent and the law, and getting into yuck-a-minute brawls with bars full of redneck oafs. Eighty percent of the jokes misfire, and most of them seem totally inspired by other movies or Lite beer commercials. And once again (as in Smokey and The Bandit II, Stroker Ace, ad infinitum) the credit sequence and end titles (which Needham, stealing from Hal Ashby's Being There, always runs over out takes and bloopers) are miles better than anything in-between. I think Burt and Hal should consider a divorce, or maybe a trial separation. Something should dawn on a director whose scenes continually play better when the actors screw them up than when they get them right.
The Canterville Ghost
Released: 1944
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Cowardly ghost redeems himself through the faith of an elfin child. Some premium grade ham from Laughton - but nobody ever stole a scene from seven-year-old Margaret O'Brien.
The Captain's Paradise
Released: 1953
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Alec Guinness stars as a ferry captain who has a woman in each port.
The Capture of Bigfoot
Released: 1979
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Cardinal
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A young Boston priest and his rise to the red hat and robes - played out against a historical background which includes the Depression. W.W.II and Civil Rights struggles in the American South. A long, dense, heavily-detailed and novelistic picture - based on a book by Frederic Morton. Preminger, as always, casts a very cold and knowing eye on the material; and as far as I'm concerned, "The Cardinal's" revelation of the internal mechanics and politics of the Catholic Church is fascinating. But the film was a huge failure -- critically and financially -- and it's reception probably ruined the acting career of its 37-year old star Tom Tyron...who then went on to make a highly unusual comeback. Not as an actor; but as a pretty bad -- if outstandingly successful -- best selling novelist.
The Caretaker
Released: 1963
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Two reclusive brothers play sinister games with a grungy, fawning old hobo whom they install as their "caretaker". Superbly acted, with the original London stage cast - including Pleasance's career-making tour de force as the bum. Beautifully shot; probably the best film adaptation of any Pinter play.
The Castle
Released: 1997
Rated: R

The Catered Affair
Released: 1956
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A lower-middle class Irish Catholic family in the Bronx, and the traumas kicked up by their daughter's wedding. Like all of Chayefsky's drama, an interesting blend of warmth and acidity.

The Cats of Mirikitani
Released: 2006
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
Jimmy Mirikitani is a Japanese-American artist who spent three years in a Japanese internment camp and was living on the streets of New York City when director Linda Hattendorf first started filming him. Her lovely film dredges up the past, then helps lay it to rest. (K.W.)
The Cave

The Cave of the Yellow Dog
Released: 2005
Rated: G
Now Playing? No
Shot in the Mongolian steppe and starring a real nomad family, this remarkable film blurs the line between documentary and fiction. The film's richness doesnâ??t lie in its dramatic tensionâ??-the simple story is about a girl who tries to convince her father to keep a dog sheâ??s found--but rather in its uncomplicated tone of quiet and calm. (J.R.)
The Cavern
Released: 1985
Rated:
Now Playing? No
A mismatched United Nations assortment are all imprisoned together in a cavernous munitions cache; desperately they try to tunnel their way loose while air, water, food, and plot twists begin running out. Directed by the genius maudit of Poverty Row, Edgar Ulmer, who always thrived in this sort of confinement. (M.W.)
