Tonight, tomorrow and Thursday, the Oak Street Cinema is showing Jacques Tati’s Playtime, a 1960’s French comedy. Everyone should go see it, one of the best movies I’ve ever seen. Indescribably beautifully filmed, and extremely funny. The Oak Street Theater is one of a few theaters in the TC that shows classic and foreign films and is independently owned and operated. The Uptown and Lagoon theaters are great and all, but they are part of a national chain, Landmark Theaters, and thus fall more under that control when deciding on what will be on the bill. The Oak Street, as part of Minnesota Film Arts along with U Film, has a lot more flexibility and a lot more surprises.

Playtime plays until Thursday. Don’t miss it!
