This week, we welcome a new addition, as expensive as it is adorable. No, not Babies - the Arclight Pasadena! The plucky youngster opens its doors just in time to join siblings Arclight Hollywood and Arclight Sherman Oaks in a one-off screening of Iron Man on Thursday, followed by Iron Man 2 at midnight. If the thick-armored American superhero is unfitting for this column, thick-headed French agent OSS 117 is made to order. The subtitled spy spoof returns to the Nuart this week with Lost in Rio, a sequel to the criminally underrated Nest of Spies. It doesn't get any more criminal than Casino Jack and the United States of Money, a documentary of corrupt lobbyists, Native American casinos, the mob, bribery, national politics, and international revolution. If that makes you sick (non-objective interjection: it should!), learn how to buck the system with The Money Fix, screening at Echo Park Film Center following a potluck and time banking workshop.
