This Week's Day-By-Day Picks

Wednesday, March 31

Urgent memo: William H. Macy makes us impatient to find out who's on the receiving end of that intense stare in David Mamet's Spartan.

Those with kids who are toddlers or younger don't even consider going to see a movie much less a film with the entire family. Right? Well, not so at the Angelika's Cry Baby Matinees. A changing table is provided, lights are kept on dim and no one cares if the occasional breast pops out--for feeding, of course. On Wednesday, satisfy that hankering for Val Kilmer and kidnapping/white slavery dramas with Spartan by David Mamet, the man famous for unrealistically super-intellectual dialogue and the unlikely castings of Rebecca Pidgeon (thankfully, she's not in this one, so there's hope) in a number of his films. Never mind our hang-ups, this is a grown-up film that parents can enjoy without hiring a sitter or completely altering life's schedule. Kids under 5 get in free, and mamas and papas pay the regular matinee prices. The show starts at 1:30 p.m., so leave some room to grab a 'dog and popcorn since, even if the movie's over the wee ones' heads, the big, fast pictures might allow parents enough time to sneak a bite or two. Angelika Film Center and Café, 5321 E. Mockingbird Lane, Mockingbird Station. Call 214-841-4700.
