The Promised Land
Released:
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The Promotion
Released: 2008
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
Seann William and Scott John C. Reilly play losers vying for a promotion to grocery-store manager. It could have been an funny exploration of the neutered American male psyche but is unforgivably bland. (J.R.)
The Proposal
Released: 2009
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
When a Canadian-born publisher (Sandra Bullock) is threatened with deportation, she bullies her long-suffering assistant (Ryan Reynolds) into a marriage of convenience. This romantic comedy is a small cut above, with likable leads. (K.J.)
The Proposition

Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Protector
Released: 2005
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
In Prachya Pinkaewâ??s audacious film, a young fighter (Tony Jaa) goes to Australia to wreak bloody revenge for his stolen elephant. A series of jaw-dropping spectacles involving roller-blade warriors, speed boats and whips are executed with incredible skill, both behind and in front of the camera. (B.C.)
The Prowler
Released: 1951
Rated:
Now Playing? No
An infatuated cop slowly, inexorably sinks into a swamp of evil as he investigates a mysterious prowler. A brilliant "B" thriller'; one of Joseph Losey's last American films before succumbing to the blacklist and European exile.
The Pumpkin Eater

Marital strife, from the Penelope Mortimer novel, with a brilliantly enigmatic and menacing Harold Pinter screenplay. (M.W.)

The Purge
Released: 2013
Rated: R

A man (Ethan Hawke) and his family face a daunting test on the one night a year the government sanctions murder. This film dissects the horror genre with its startling satire of America’s relationship with violence. (M.J.)
The Purge: Anarchy
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A group of strangers band together to survive a government-sanctioned night of lawlessness. The victims-to-be could be more endearing, but it's refreshing to see a reliable character actor like Frank Grillo get the spotlight as the film's Punisher-like vigilante. (W.G.)
The Purple Plain
Released: 1955
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Downed pilot in World War II Burma fights the jungles within, the jungles without. "What burst of Buddhist inspiration," Andrew Sarris wondered, "was responsible for such a haunting exception to the unexceptional career" of Robert Parrish? (M.W.)
The Purple Rose of Cairo
Released: 1985
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No
Unhappily married Depression-era waitress Cecilia (Mia Farrow) earns the money while her inattentive husband, Monk (Danny Aiello), blows their meager income on getting drunk and gambling. To assuage her loneliness, Cecilia escapes to the picture show and becomes transfixed with the movie.
The Pursuit of Happiness
Released: 1971
Rated:

The vagaries of '60s era American justice, illuminated by the plight of a youth responsible for an accidental death. Done with Robert Mulligan's usual sympathy and warmth.
The Pursuit of Happyness
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Will Smith plays a Chicago investment banker who was homeless while taking care of his son and enduring a six-month, unpaid training program with Dean Witter. Smith does a nice job of turning down the volume on his Hollywood-superstar persona. (K.W.)
The Pursuit of the Graf Spee (The Battle of the River Plate)
Released: 1957
Rated:
Now Playing? No
The notorious World War II German pocket battleship run to earth at Montevideo harbor, and a mixture of wild carnival and stiff upper lip gallantry. Last fruit of the brilliant 15-year collaboration of Britisher Michael Powell and Hungarian German Emeric Pressburger; as in Colonel Blimp, they fabricate a strange spiritual kinship between the British and German commanders. (M.W.)
The Pyramid
Released: 2014
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A veteran researcher and his daughter begin excavating an Egyptian pyramid but are soon lost and, of course, not alone. This horror flick insists on cramming ancient evil into a newfangled found-footage format. (W.G.)
The Queen
Released: 2006
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
Stephen Frears' work of speculative history chronicles the private thoughts and conversations that might have occurred around 1997, during some particularly chaotic moments of Queen Elizabeth II's rule. Helen Mirren is magnificent in the title role, and the film is palace intrigue at its finest. The screening kicks off Westgate's Summer Oscar Series, which features 2006's best-picture nominees on Sunday afternoons with reduced ticket prices and a free bag of popcorn. (M.B.)
The Queen of the Damned
Released: 2002
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
The Queen of Versailles
Released: 2012
Rated: PG
Now Playing? No

The Quiet Ones
Released: 2014
Rated: PG-13
Now Playing? No
In 1970s England, a professor (Jared Harris) performs an experiment on a young woman who may be possessed by demons (Olivia Cooke). Director John Pogue favors old-fashioned spookiness over blood and guts, which is refreshing in an era of excessive onscreen gore. (M.J.)
The Quillar Memorandum
Released: 1965
Rated:
Now Playing? No
Top drawer spy thriller, from a moody, enigmatic Harold Pinter scenario. (M.W.)
The Race to Save 100 Years

The Raid: Redemption
Released: 2011
Rated: R

In Jakarta, Indonesia, cops raid a decrepit apartment building controlled by a drug boss and his minions. The martial-arts fighting is dazzling and inventive, but the film is light on plot and takes itself too seriously. (K.B.)
The Railway Man
Released: 2013
Rated: R
Now Playing? No
A former soldier (Colin Firth) decides to confront the man responsible for torturing him during World War II. Screenwriters Andy Paterson and Frank Cottrell Boyce adeptly shift the action back and forth between two engrossing storylines, one about the veteran's struggle with PTSD and another about his burgeoning love affair with a stranger (Nicole Kidman). (K.J.)
