Little Theater

$5. 7141 Germantown Ave. 215.247.3020. www.mtairyvideolibrary.com Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

(2007) (Shown on DVD): Surely the film's odd target audience--those who like musical theater and Takashi Miike--will be reached through home video. Noble try, fellas. B- Fri., April 4-Sat., April 5, 8pm; and Sun., April 6, 7pm.

Trocadero

$3. 1003 Arch St. 215.922.LIVE. www.thetroc.com Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street

(2007) (Shown on DVD): See Little Theater. B- Mon., April 7, 8pm.

Villanova University

$3-$5 (students free). Connelly Center Cinema, 800 Lancaster Ave., Villanova. 610.519.4750. www.villanova.edu Ringu

(1999) (Shown on film): Kiyoshi Kurosawa's bone-chilling 1997 film Cure may have kickstarted the J-horror craze, but it took Hideo Nakata's videotape fetish pic for it to infect America. See it before Gore Verbinski and Naomi Watts got their mitts on it, if you haven't already. (Not reviewed.) Sat., April 5 and Mon., April 6, 7pm; and Sun., April 7, 3:30pm and 7pm.

Wooden Shoe Books

Free. 508 S. Fifth St. 215.413.0999. www.woodenshoebooks.com Private

(2004) (Shown on DVD): How's this for a metaphor for the Palestinian-Israeli rift: A Palestinian family finds their home occupied by Israel's notoriously macho soldiers, holding their tongues even as a climactic tussle looms. Shot in Italy, Saverio Costanzo's film doesn't exactly do equal time, but it does work as an update on Desperate Hours--the tension mounting one queasy notch at a time. C+ Sat., April 5, 7:30pm.
