THE CURSE OF LA LLORONA—More horror from the folk who gave you Annabelle. Starring Linda Cardellini, Raymond Cruz, Marisol Ramirez and Sean Patrick Thomas. Directed by Michael Chaves, now working on the next Conjuring sequel. Area theaters

LOVING VINCENT—Return engagement for the popular film in which 100 artists hand painted the backgrounds, settings, and the costume details and hairdos of the characters in the Expressionist style of Vincent van Gogh, whose story the film recounts. Paired with The Impossible Dream, a one-hour documentary about the making of the film. North Park

MEOW WOLF: ORIGIN STORY—Documentary about a Santa Fe, NM art collective whose socially conscious large-scale exhibitions gain them the support of George R. R. Martin. North Park

PETERLOO—Writer/director Mike Leigh (Naked) opts for an uncharacteristically epic canvas to explore the events leading up to the 1819 Peterloo Massacre in Manchester, where 60,000 Brits gathered to demand political reform in the face of rising poverty. Starring Rory Kinnear, Maxine Peake, Pearce Quigley, and Tim McInnerny. Dipson Eastern Hills



Thursday, April 25:

BURIAL GROUND (Italy, 1981)—From the glory days of Dawn of the Dead-inspired Italian horror. Hopefully this print retains the atrocious dubbing that was always one of the best parts of these things. Starring Karin Well, Gianluigi Chirizzi, and Simone Mattioli. Directed by Andrea Bianchi (Strip Nude for Your Killer). Part of the Thursday Night Terrors series. 7:30 pm. Dipson Amherst

Saturday, April 27:

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN (1952)—The one Hollywood musical that everyone likes, even people who hate musicals. A story parodying the movies’ transition from silents to sound is the backdrop for some still astonishing dance numbers featuring Gene Kelly and Donald O’Connor (whose “Make ‘Em Laugh” sequence remains one of the most amazing things you’ll ever see.) With Debbie Reynolds, Jean Hagen, Rita Moreno and Cyd Charisse. 7pm. Screening Room

Sunday, April 28:

SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN—See above. 1 pm. Screening Room

Tuesday, April 23:

EYES WIDE SHUT (1999)—Stanley Kubrick’s final film, starring Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as a well-to-do couple who experiment with sexual infidelity. It was not well received on its release: Will the post-screening discussion at this Buffalo Film Seminars presentation conclude that it is an overlooked masterpiece? 7pm. Dipson Amherst
