It's Memorial Day weekend, which means it's tentpole season in Hollywood! In a glib appeal to the second X chromosome, Arclight Hollywood boasts boutique blockbuster Sex and the City 2 in a fully-stocked party package! The girls may be high and dry in Abu Dhabi, but you'll be fresh and breezy with SKYY specialty cocktails and unlimited appetizers! If the $70 price tag knocks the liner off your lips, The Landmark celebrates Carrie & co. with round-the-clock (standard-priced) screenings and a Cosabella lingerie giveaway.

In an action-packed appeal to the Y chromosome, The Egyptian embodies the spirit of Memorial Day with deployments from veteran war directors Robert Aldrich (whose classic The Dirty Dozen epitomizes the motley-crew-on-a-suicide-mission film) and Sam Fuller (who based The Big Red One on his own WWII Infantry experience). In a brainy appeal to the Z chromosome, the Nuart unleashes zombie maestro George Romero's latest opus, Survival of the Dead.

More film talk and a schedule appears below. See you at the movies!
