There are so many ways to watch things these days, but watching a movie on the big screen is still the best form, so to help keep track of what's playing, every Friday, Pittsburgh City Paper will compile a round-up of new releases and second-run films playing around the city. This only covers films that are new to theaters this week; check out what movies opened last week here.
