  • 6. Page 6 REEL Time Theater THE TOWN (Ben Affleck, Rebecca Hall) Doug MacRay is an unrepentant criminal, the de facto leader of a group of ruthless bank robbers who pride themselves in stealing what they want and getting out clean. With no real attachments, Doug never has to fear losing anyone close to him. But that all changed on the gang's latest job, when they briefly took a hostage--bank manager, Claire Keesey. Though they let her go unharmed, Claire is nervously aware that the robbers know her name and where she lives. She lets her guard down when she meets an unassuming and rather charming man named Doug not realizing that he is the same man who only days earlier had terrorized her. The instant attraction between them gradually turns into a passionate romance that threatens to take them both down a dangerous, and potentially deadly, path. Rated R (strong violence, pervasive language, some sexuality and drug use) 125 min Show Times: 5 Nov @ 1900, 6 Nov @ 1900 YOU AGAIN (Kristen Bell, Jamie Lee Curtis) Successful PR pro Marni heads home for her older brother's wedding and discovers that he's marrying her high school arch nemesis, who's conveniently forgotten their problem- atic past. Then the bride's jet-setting aunt bursts in and Marni's not-so-jet- setting mom comes face to face with her own high school rival. The claws come out and old wounds are opened in this crazy com- edy that proves that not all rivalries are forever. Rated PG (brief mild language and rude behavior) 105 min Show Times: 7 Nov @ 1900, 11 Nov @ 1900 United States Army Aviation Center of Excellence Ft.
