“Interstellar” Now Screening; Tropical Tuesdays at Brillobox (CPs Tues., 11/11/14)

1) Interstellar—Guess what? They’ve discovered a wormhole in outer space allowing Matthew McConaughey to travel to different dimensions. Or at least director Christopher Nolan would have you believe that with this, his latest film. Maybe in that other reality McConaughey can find the missing plot from Nolan’s previous Inception.  McConaughey and fellow astronauts must find a new planet for the hungry and beleaguered people of Earth who may be wiped out by massive dust storms. The film features an all-star cast, including Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain, Matt Damon, and Michael Caine. Check Fandango for screens and times.

2) Getaway to the tropics with a trip to Brillobox for Tropical Tuesdays. There you’ll feel the trade winds (fan) soothe your overdue vacation bones. Here’s a sampling of their specials $3 select craft cans, $4 frozen drinks, $10 California bubble bath, $10 Eva Peron, $7 Fernet con cola, and $6 Coronita Margaveza. You can also sop up the island drinks with $7 pineapple soy-glazed chicken or tofu skewers served with Caribbean sweet potato salad. Shoes and shirt required. 5 p.m. – 2 a.m. 4104 Penn Ave., Bloomfield.

 

3) Big Hero 6­  is the latest Disney animated feature and is based on the Marvel Comics superhero series. A band of unlikely human and robotic underdogs join forces to save the world from a masked villain. And is it only the merest coincidence that Disney bought Marvel five years ago?
