Opening March 7: Coffee Bloom

One new Hindi film is opening in the Chicago area this weekend…sort of. MovieMax Cinemas in Niles is carrying the new release Coffee Bloom, but the theater is only showing it twice the whole week: 4 p.m. on both Saturday, March 7, and Sunday, March 8, 2015.

The only other Hindi film showing in the area this weekend is Badlapur, which gets a third week at MovieMax, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

Other Indian films showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Surya vs Surya (Telugu w/no subtitles) at Muvico Rosemont 18 in Rosemont, Cinemark at Seven Bridges in Woodridge, and MovieMax, which also carries Enakkul Oruvan (Tamil), Kaaki Sattai (Tamil), Fireman (Malayalam), Temper (Telugu), and Anegan (Tamil).
