Attack the Block opens in the US this weekend, here's where you can find it!

07.26.2011

I was pretty confident back in March, when I first saw ATTACK THE BLOCK at the very first US screening of the film, that it would find a place on my Best of 2011 list. We're now almost done with July and ATTACK is still nestled among the very best of the year so far.

The film has been screening in major cities since SXSW and, at least as near as I can tell, hasn't found a single, major detractor. It's just a lovable movie (as lovable as a movie about an alien invasion could be). This weekend it finally opens in theaters where anyone can (and should) go see it.

But what has been slightly more difficult is finding more information on where ATTACK THE BLOCK is playing. The US run doesn't seem to have a website (nothing is listed on Sony's website and attacktheblock.com still is promoting the UK release) but we've got an official list of every theater playing the film in US and Canada.

The film is starting out in 7 cities right now - New York, Los Angeles, Austin, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Chicago - with the promise of more to come. But this promise of additional theaters is predicated on you (yes YOU) going to see it this weekend if you live in one of those cities. We've had some mildly retarded alien invasion flicks in the past few months (I'm looking at you SKYLINE), so if you want to see more films like this, go out and show your support!

CHICAGO - River East 21
AUSTIN - Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar
LOS ANGELES - Arclight
NEW YORK - AMC Empire 25
NEW YORK - Union Square Stadium 14
SAN FRANCISCO - AMC Metreon 15
SEATTLE - Regal Meridian
TORONTO - Yonge & Dundas 24

Knowing Santa Cruz...

I'm sure it will be coming to Santa Cruz if it does even remotely well in San Francisco. Too many indie theaters in this town for it not to happen!

That's one of the most horrible comments I've ever read. You should be ashamed of yourself, and show your grandfather some respect. You probably could have learned a lot from the man if you weren't such an ass.

Great Fun

saw this at a screening in NYC back in May and the whole theater was on their feet cheering and clapping. Tons of fun, surprisingly good action, and plenty of thrills. Highly recommend! The male lead, John Boyega, is going to be a big star
