Caligula 

When: Tue., Feb. 8, 12:30 p.m. 2011
Price: $20

Sometimes life just sets you up for a fall. When I saw the Carmike 15 was screening Caligula, my first instinct was that it was the notorious 1979 flop co-directed by Penthouse publisher Bob Guccione that featured a cast of name British actors in a psycho soft-core. But apparently this is in fact the Paris Opera Ballet's stage production about the demented emperor, which has been praised by critics for its taste and restraint. Restraint. That's a word you rarely hear in conjunction with Caligula's name. In fairness, this is an HD simulcast of the Paris Opera Ballet production set to Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" that explores a number of classic historical and literary themes. But sometimes you just want a crazed, incestuous Malcolm McDowell. If you prefer your Roman rulers in good taste, the screening is at 12:30 p.m. —Zack Smith
