Screenings in the Bay (Monday to Friday): Troll 2, The Beyond, Aliens

I hope everyone is having a good Monday! But if not, I think this week's movie lineup will brighten your mood - every day this week has at least one tempting screening scheduled. The week is dominated by the 80's with a couple of cult movies interlaced. If Troll 2, The Beyond, They Live and Aliens are movies you'd love to re-watch (or watch for the first time), this week will make you smile, especially since one of these well known titles is accompanied by a live score!
Keep reading for details.
