MovieDescription
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A cutting-edge illusionist (Jim Carrey) drives a wedge between two friends turned superstar magicians (Steve Carell, Steve Buscemi). There are several on-target gags during the first hour of this comedy, before it morphs into an unsatisfying redemption story. (S.R.)
The Incredible Hulk
Released: 2008
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
This screen version of the Marvel comic is vastly more entertaining than the last one, thanks to Edward Norton’s performance as the scientist who tries to repress the beast within. The film never stops moving, and suddenly the Hulk feels really, truly incredible. (M.S.)
The incredible Two-Headed Transplant
Released: 1971
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Reckless of the consequences, a mad scientist unwisely grafts the head of a homicidal maniac onto the body of an idiot. If you ever want to thoroughly enrage Bruce Dern, just walk up to him and remark, "Say weren't you in The Incredible Two-Headed Transplant?" He'll probably deck you.
The Incredibles
Released: 2004
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
The Independent

Rated: R

The Infidel
Released: 2010
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The 2010 comedy about a British Muslim who discovers his biological family is Jewish.
The Informant!
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Matt Damon turns in a solid performance as a scientist who blows the whistle on price-fixing in international agribusiness. The film represents director Steven Soderbergh’s return to audience-friendly fare after recent forays into theoretical filmmaking. (M.B.)
The Informer
Released: 1935
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Fog covers Dublin like a graveyard shroud, and in that black, pitiless night - that night punctuated by screams, gunfire and drunken revelry - walks a great brute of a man named Gypo Nolan. Around him is pitched warfare between the IRA and the Black-and-Tans, but to Gypo, only two things matter: his dream of passion and the gold in his pocket. This is the film that made John Ford's reputation and won his first Oscar. Based on the powerful novel by Liam O'Flaherty, it is a raw, emotional, expressionistic look at loyalty, cowardice, revolution and death. It is slightly crippled - just as Gypo is - by sentimentality, but at its best, it makes you feel the anguish of betrayal, the agony of the hunted, and the pain and beauty of redemption.
The Informers
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Billy Bob Thornton, Kim Basinger and Mickey Rourke star in an adaptation of Bret Easton Ellis’ book about L.A. denizens in the early ‘80s. There’s no plot, and it’s hard to care about characters who themselves don’t care. (M.B.)
The Inglorious Bastards
Released: 1978
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Two officers (Bo Svenson, Ian Bannen) lead military misfits on a mission to steal a Nazi V-2 rocket gyroscope. (TMS)
The Ingmarssons
Released: 1910
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The UW Cinemathequeâ??s â??Film Performance in the 1910sâ? features Swedenâ??s Victor Sjöstrom in the tragic tale of an 18th-century farm family. With live piano accompaniment.
The Inheritance
Released: 2001
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Inn of the Sixth Happiness
Released: 1958
Rated:
Now Playing? No
China before the storm, with a British missionary desperately guiding her orphaned charges to safety. Bergman from her "lyceum" period. (M.W.)
The Inner Tour
Released: 2001
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Innkeepers
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The last two employees (Sara Paxton, Pat Healy) of a century-old haunted hotel go on the hunt for ghosts. Healy introduces the screening and answers questions.
The Innocent
Released: 1976
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Luchino Visconti's last film (and one of his best), an adaptation of the D'Annunzio novel that turns its familiar love-triangle and sexual-jealousy plot into a devastating critique of male chauvinism and the Italian aristocracy (of which Visconti, of course, was a member.)
The Innocents
Released: 1961
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
"We were alone with the quiet day, and his little heart, dispossessed, had stopped." ...That gently terrifying sentence is the conclusion of Henry James' peerlessly subtle ghost story. "The Turn of the Screw," the course of this movie. "The Innocents" is British film-making at close to its best: unoriginal but thoughtful, polished and splendidly realized on every level - like Olivier's Shakespeare films or Lean's Dickens's. James' famous psychological cross-currents are intact, the acting and photography are superb. This is a film intended for a literate, intelligent audience, and, for most of that audience, it will be a treat.
The Insider
Released: 1999
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Inspector General
Released: 1949
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Gogol's great comedy about the yokel who is mistaken for the Czar's Inspector and then feted and bribed by the entire town, updated as a Danny Kaye vehicle. Not so savage or black, but it still draws blood.
The International
Released: 2009
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
An Interpol agent (Clive Owen) and a U.S. attorney (Naomi Watts) try to convince people that the most powerful bank in the world is really a criminal organization and get nothing for their troubles but shot at and run down by cars. The film feels stuck in second gear, like it can't decide whether to be fun or meaningful and so settles for being neither. (J.R.)
The Internship
Released: 2013
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Two middle-aged men whose sales careers have tanked (Vince Vaughn, Owen Wilson) land internships at Google, where they must compete with the country's most tech-savvy 21-year-olds. Product placement aside, this film has an admirable message about misfit pride and fellowship. (K.J.)
The Interpreter
Released: 2005
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Sean Penn and Nicole Kidman star in a political thriller set at the U.N.
The Interrupters
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Members of the activist group CeaseFire work to curb violence in their Chicago neighborhoods by intervening in street fights and showing youths a better way to resolve conflicts. (TMS)
The Interview
Released: 1998
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Intouchables
Released: 2011
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Billed as being "based on a true story," this film is about the unlikely friendship that develops between a wealthy, white quadriplegic (François Cluzet) and a streetwise, black ne'er-do-well (Omar Sy) who becomes his live-in companion. It’s a minor gem of nuanced performances and sublime directorial craftsmanship. (M.S.)
The Invasion
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In the latest version of Invasion of the Body Snatchers, a psychiatrist (Nicole Kidman) discovers that space-borne spores are neutering human emotions. Woefully miscast and often tonally schizophrenic, this is a textbook example of how not to remake a classic. (M.S.)
The Invasion of Thunderbolt Pagoda
Released: 1968
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
The Invention of Lying
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Ricky Gervais co-writes, co-directs and stars in this clever tale of an alternate universe in which everyone bluntly delivers the truth. Gervais' character accidentally discovers the first lie, and the floodgates open. (K.J.)
The Invisible
Released: 2007
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
A high school kid (Justin Chatwin) enters the spirit world after being left for dead in an attack. The performances are good, but the film is both mopey and cloying. (M.S.)
The Invisible Children
Released: 2001
Rated: NR
Now Playing? No
