In Theaters December 16, 2011

With a flurry of recent releases and Don 2‘s arrival in theaters on December 23, there are no new Bollywood movies opening in the Chicago area on Friday, December 16. Last weekend’s new release, Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl, gets a second week at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville.

The Golf Glen 5 and South Barrington 30 are both carrying over The Dirty Picture and Desi Boyz, which earned $1,066,167 during its first three weeks in U.S. theaters.

Beginning December 16, Facets Cinematheque in Chicago is carrying the September release That Girl in Yellow Boots for a week-long run. If you missed it the first time around, it’s worth checking out.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this week include Osthe (Tamil) and Panjaa (Telugu).

Fresh on the heels of a pair of new releases last weekend comes Ladies vs. Ricky Bahl, opening in the Chicago area on December 9, 2011. The romantic comedy reunites Anushka Sharma and Ranveer Singh, who charmed audiences last year in Band Baaja Baaraat.
