Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday)

The weekend is upon us and so are several new releases. The Boy hits theaters today, and the X-Files mini series will also be shown on one big screen. You'll have to act fast and check with the theater for the latter because it will likely sell out. This is also the first week of the Alamo's Video Vortex, which will screen Sunday nights.
