STRANGE NEW WORLDS: CRUMBS

The ArtsCenter is doing its part to catch a few of the many worthy small films that slip through the Triangle's inadequate net of art-house screens with "Strange New Worlds," a new series roving through "alien landscapes and distorted realities" in modern cinema. According to box-office manager Matt Stevenson, it was conceived because he wanted to see the 2015 Ethiopian sci-fi film Crumbs but didn't expect it to reach North Carolina any time soon. The surreal postapocalyptic love story finds its protagonists living in a bowling alley as a long-dormant alien spaceship begins to show signs of activity above them. The other two films in the series, Uncle Boonmee Who Can Recall His Past Lives (April 8) and Kumiko, The Treasure Hunter (May 13), pick up on the main theme in different ways, the former foraying into the alien landscape of the past, the latter into the distorted reality of a woman searching for the buried ransom money from Fargo. The in-house film series, hoped to be followed by others, is a smart use of the stadium seating and more-than-adequate projection and sound system of The ArtsCenter's Earl & Rhoda Wynn Theater. The Chelsea's cool, but Carrboro could use an art house of its own. —Brian Howe
