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

7:00, 9:50.

"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-

7:00,9:20, 11:30.

7:10, 10:00, 12:35. At Ann Arbor 1&2: 1:15, 4:15, 7:15, 10:05.
JuDeMENT NIGHT 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 a bottle of Nair. At Showcase: 12:00,
