Natalie Wood

Indie Theater Roundup: 7 Movies to See This Week

Just a month remains before the September release of Casey Affleck's long-rumored documentary about Joaquin Phoenix's bumpy transition from the big screen to the recording studio. (The Oscar-nominated Walk the Line star reportedly aspires to rap.) You can try holding your breath in the meantime, but you'd be wiser to visit one of the city's lovely indie theaters, where the following fine films await you.

1. Rebel Without a Cause
Where: Castro Theatre, 429 Castro St., 415-621-6120
When: Aug. 6

Rent the Non-PC West Side Story, and the LSD-iest Hair (instead of the Tony-nominees)

The Tony Awards broadcast isn’t really a must-TiVo event. Watching TV about theater might not be exactly like dancing about architecture but its pretty off-the-mark too. After all, the theater may be not dead yet, but it ain't as popular as Netflix.
