The Projector: Movies opening Friday, March 4 


The Adjustment Bureau--Matt Damon can do anything, and this time he is taking on politics--in this movie anyway. He plays an almost-senator who falls in love with the wrong woman (Emily Blunt). Do you believe in fate or is it all just a master plan? (PG-13) Edwards 9

Beastly--Easy-on-the-eyes couple Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer drop preconceived stereotypes to show that love has no superficial judgments. Too-cool-for-school Kyle encounters a wicked spell that leaves him disfigured and searching for true love. (PG-13) Edwards 22

Rango--Voiced by Johnny Depp, Abigail Breslin and Alfred Molina, this animated feature follows a triumphant chameleon as he rises to a position of authority in a dusty Western town. (PG) Edwards 9, Edwards 22

Take Me Home Tonight--This period film takes us all the way back to the late '80s, when fishnets were for the arms and Madonna's arms weren't so frightening. Starring That 70's Show's Topher Grace and Scary Movie's Anna Faris, this comedic farce shows the path that a career can take after dropping out of MIT and going to work in a video store. (R) Edwards 9, Edwards 22
