Ambler Theater

$3.50-$8.50. 108 E. Butler Ave. 215.345.7855. www.amblertheater.org

Pierrot le Fou (1965) (Shown on film): Jean-Luc Godard's finest moment was debatably this delirious pop pastiche, in which a gutter-noir plot--Jean-Paul Belmondo runs from gangsters with fatale Anna Karina--serves as the basis for Brechtian gags, political jabs, melancholy brooding, musical numbers, pastoral loveliness and loud bursts of 'Scope color (including a party scene presented in various tints). Not to mention the best ending shy of George Romero's Martin. A Thurs., March 27, 7pm.

How to Eat Fried Worms (2006) (Shown on DVD): Thomas Rockwell's kiddie fave, first published back in 1973, made a super-belated graduation to film--the most interesting part of which appears to be a score by Devo's Mark and Bob Mothersbaugh. (Not reviewed.) Sat., March 29, 11am.

Bryn Mawr Film Institute

$3.50-$9.25 (unless otherwise noted). 824 W. Lancaster Ave., Bryn Mawr. 610.527.9898. www.brynmawrfilm.org

Pierrot le Fou (1965) (Shown on film): See Ambler Theater. A Wed., March 26, 7pm.

Antz (1998) (Shown on DVD): After which Woody Allen had a chance to commence with a fruitful second career writing for children's movies and/or voicing them, but decided the world really needed The Curse of the Jade Scorpion and Scoop instead. Shame. B- Sat., March 29, 11am.

Chestnut Hill Film Group

Free. Screening room at the Chestnut Hill Branch of the Free Library, 8711 Germantown Ave. 215.248.0977. www.armcinema25.com

A Star Is Born (1954) (Shown on film): Judy Garland and James Mason play each other's roles--he an unraveling star and she his increasingly successful rock--in George Cukor's lavish but never less than intense reworking of William A. Wellman's 1937 psychodrama. The version shown will be the 1983 version, which restores most of the half-hour cut just after the premiere. A- Tues., April 1, 7:30pm.

Colonial Theatre

$4-$7. 227 Bridge St., Phoenixville. 610.917.0223. www.thecolonialtheatre.com

The Man With the Golden Gun (1974) (Shown on film): Already bored on his third go in the series, Roger Moore faces off against triple-nipped villain Christopher Lee--sadly, only the best Bond villain in theory. C+ Sun., March 30, noon.

County Theater

$3.50-$8.50. 20 E. State St., Doylestown. 215.345.6789. www.countytheater.com

Pee-Wee's Big Adventure (1985) (Shown on DVD): "I bought this pen one hour before my bike was stolen. Why? What's the significance? I don't know!" A Sat., March 29, 11am.

Black Maria Film and Video Festival (Shown on film and video): Named for the first movie production studio, designed by Thomas Edison, this annual festival swings by the County with a set of short films ranging from experimental to narrative, from documentary to animation. Mon., March 31, 7pm.
