F I L M S H O L D I N G:
AiE OF INNOCENCE Book-to-movie tales of the 1800s upper class are in

.7:00, 9:50.
THE BEVERLY HILLEIWEs First an allergic reaction forced him off of "Wizard

"Barnaby Jones - the Movie." At Showcase: 12:20, 2:30, 4:40, 7:30, 9:40,
11:50.
CooL RUNNINGS This documentary from NORML, about the 1988 Jamai-
can Bobsled team, is meant to show what a little imagination and determi-
nation, as well as a lot of ganja, can do. At Showcase: 12:15, 2:25, 4:35,
7:00,9:20, 11:30.
*DEMounON MAN Earlier this year, there was "Cliffhanger." Now Stallone is
being cryogenically frozen. Soon, we'll probably be seeing Sly on "North-
ern Exposure." At Showcase: 12:30, 3:00, 5:25, 7:50, 10:20, 12:40.

ready for "Indy 4." At Showcase: 9:30, 12:10.

And this one's got blood, guts, explosions and local hero Jeff Daniels in a
really funky mustache. At Showcase: 1:20, 8:00.
Goow SON I'll pay $6 for this movie if I actually get to see Macauley die.
*Hell, I'll pay $10. At Showcase: 1:00, 3:15, 5:10, 7:20, 9:30, 11:25.

7:10, 10:00, 12:35. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:15, 4:15, 7:15, 10:05.
JUDGMENT Now I've got two words for Denis Leary: Marisa Tomei. If she
can go from "A Different World" to an Oscar, there's hope for you, buddy-
boy. At Showcase: 12:50, 3:20, 5:35, 8:00, 10:20, 12:40.

he was born for. If only he'd find an Epilady. At Showcase: 12:00,2:20,
4:45, 7:40, 10:00, 12:15.

survive at the multiplex. At Showcase: 12:00, 2:10, 4:25, 7:10.
