If you have yet to get on that "Gone Girl" train, never fear. The David Fincher flick will be showing at the Screening Room beginning Friday, Dec. 19. Did Ben Affleck kill his wife?

Well, this thriller, based on a Gillian Flynn novel, will take you on a twisty-turny journey to find the answers to these questions and more. Such auxiliary questions include: Did I just see Ben Affleck's penis? You be the judge. For screening times and more information, visit www.screeningroomtucson.com.

Before Andy Samberg won an Emmy for his hilarious cop comedy "Brooklyn Nine-Nine", he made a weird little movie about a wannabe stuntman named Rod Kimble. Although the movie kind of flopped in theatres, you should know that "Hot Rod" really is worth a view. With a supporting cast including Bill Hader, Jorma Taccone, Will Arnett, Chris Parnell, and Danny McBride, comedy nerds know a line-up like that has to translate into some solid laughs on screen. Check out all of the odd, off-hand gags the Lonely Island crew became known for on The Loft's big screen on Sunday, Dec. 21 at 7 p.m. Tickets at $6 and can be bought online in advance at www.loftcinema.com
CHRISTMAS OF THE DAMMED
Maybe you've had enough holly and jolly for one Xmas season and you're ready for some good old-fashioned carnage. If that's the case, just traipse on over to The Loft for a $3 screening of "Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2" at The Loft. Just to be clear, yes—this Christmas-themed horror movie sequel is somehow even worse than the original with baffling plot holes and some exceptionally bad acting and dialogue. Well, you better watch out and you better not cry because a maniac axe-wielding Santa Claus is coming to town on Monday, Dec. 22, at 8 p.m. More information on this movie is available at www.loftcinema.com
