Mystery Team Thursday, Feb. 3 8 10 12 If you’ve heard of and enjoy the comedy team called Derrick Comedy, you’ll most likely enjoy this movie. The group took time out of its busy schedule shooting short sketches to produce its first feature-length film. The movie joins three members of Derrick Comedy who are about to graduate from high school, but still act like kids when they play detective games with each other. Things get nutty when the trio attempts to prove their child-like behavior was for a good cause as they try to solve a series of murders that hit their small town. Think Scooby Doo meets an SNL Digital Short.

The Social Network Friday, Feb. 4 7:30 10 12:30 The Social Network is David Fincher’s drama about the creation of Facebook and the origin of the piles of money Mark Zuckerberg has lying around somewhere. Ranked by many as one of the best films of the year and nominated for eight Academy Awards, this movie features an ensemble cast with Justin Timberlake, the new Spiderman Andrew Garfield, and rising star Jesse Eisenberg as Zuckerberg. Critics loved the flick, though some have questioned the light in which it portrayed Zuckerberg. Despite their criticisms, you have to admit, $200 million worldwide isn’t shabby.

Being John Malkovich Saturday, Feb. 5 7:30 10 12:30 Spike Jonze directs this black comedy about a fictionalized version of John Malkovich. John Cusack and Cameron Diaz also star in this original movie that explores the true nature of consciousness, philosophy, and perception. In the film, Cusack discovers a portal that leads into the mind of Malkovich, then dumps you out onto the New Jersey Turnpike after a minute or two. He starts a business out of it, but things start to go haywire when it is discovered that it may be possible to completely take over Malkovich’s life. Fun fact: Brad Pitt, Hanson, Charlie Sheen, and several other stars make brief cameos.

AB Special Events: Super Bowl Sunday, Feb. 6 6:30 As a Browns and Jets fan, I’m probably not the best person to write a Super Bowl preview. Thankfully, I’m a nice person. The Activities Board is presenting the Super Bowl this Sunday in McConomy and will be providing some sort of refreshments for you all to enjoy. A giant screen? Check. Free food? Check. Some people’s favorite team playing on the JumboTron? Check. Barring the possibility you might be a Packers fan (good for you), you should need no further reason to attend.
