Opening February 14: Gunday

Celebrate Valentine’s Day with shootouts and coal-thievery. Gunday (a plural form of “goon,” not the name of the most violent day of the week) hits Chicago area theaters on February 14, 2014.

Gunday opens on Friday in seven local theaters: AMC River East 21 in Chicago, Regal Gardens Stadium 1-6 in Skokie, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, Marcus Addison in Addison, Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville, and AMC Loews Woodridge 18 in Woodridge.

After a solid performance in its opening weekend, the romantic comedy Hasee Toh Phasee gets a second week at the River East 21, Golf Glen 5, South Barrington 30, and Cantera 17.

Other Indian movies showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Idhu Kathirvelan Kadhal (Tamil) and Ohm Shaanthi Ohshaana (Malayalam).

In Theaters February 19, 2010

With My Name Is Khan dominating screen space, there are no new Hindi movies opening in Chicagoland this weekend. MNIK earned $2,264,983 in U.S. theaters during its opening weekend, which included an extra day because of Monday’s Presidents Day holiday. The movie had the highest per screen average with $18,875, beating Valentine’s Day‘s $17,227 per screen haul.

My Name Is Khan continues for a second week at AMC Loews Pipers Alley 4 in Chicago, Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and AMC Cantera 30 in Warrenville.

If you’ve still not gotten around to seeing 3 Idiots, it’s sticking around for a ninth week at the South Barrington 30.

Other Indian movies showing in the Chicago area this weekend include Leader (Telugu), Thamizh Padam (Tamil) and Uthara Swayamvaram (Malayalam) at the Golf Glen 5 and Chattambi Nadu (Malayalam) at Sathyam Cinemas in Downers Grove.
