If the prospect of watching James Franco play with primates in Rise of the Planet of the Apes isn't enough to get you off the couch this weekend, we've got several worthy alternatives in this week's Indie Theater Roundup, which comes complete with an Easter egg of sorts: a YouTube video of the late Patrick Swayze recalling his least favorite line in Dirty Dancing! Enjoy.

Looking to take refuge from the weekend traffic in the air-conditioned confines of a darkened theater? Check out the best of this summer's indie fare – including Bride Flight, Twin Sisters director Ben Sombogaart's award-winning epic romance – now playing at San Francisco's venerable arthouse cinemas, and enjoy your Fourth of July safely, merrily and with a hefty helping of holiday BBQ.
