In Theaters November 4, 2011

After posting worldwide collections of $35 million in its first week, it’s no surprise that Ra.One continues to dominate screenspace the weekend beginning Friday, November 4, 2011. The next new Bollywood movie likely to open in Chicago area theaters is Rockstar on November 11.

Ra.One carries over in 3D and 2D at the AMC Loews 600 North Michigan 9 and AMC Ford City 14 in Chicago, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington, and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. The Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles is carrying the film in 2D only. The 2D version of Ra.One showing at the Cantera isn’t subtitled, so check with your local theater before buying tickets.

The Tamil sci-fi thriller 7aum Arivu expands its reach this week, opening at the South Barrington 30 on Friday. The Golf Glen 5 carries over the original Tamil version as well as the Telugu-dubbed version, 7th Sense, for a second week.

Other Indian films showing at the Golf Glen 5 this weekend include Snehaveedu (Malayalam) and Velayudham (Tamil).

Opening October 26: RA.One

As far as Bollywood movies are concerned, there’s only one game in town this week: RA.One. Shahrukh Khan’s 3D superhero epic — the most expensive Indian movie yet, with a price tag of nearly US$40 million — opens in the Chicago area on October 26, 2011.

RA.One opens on Wednesday in both 2D and 3D at the AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. If you just can’t wait to see it, the South Barrington 30 is holding a midnight showing late Tuesday night.

The Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles doesn’t specify if it will carry the 3D version of RA.One, but it will be showing the film in its original Hindi, plus versions dubbed into Tamil and Telugu, all starting on Wednesday as well. The AMC Ford City 14 and AMC Loews 600 North Michigan 9 — both in Chicago — are carrying the 2D version of RA.One, which has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 36 min.
