Texas brothers Toby (Chris Pine) and Tanner (Ben Foster) come together after years divided to rob branches of the bank threatening to foreclose on their family land.

Justice seems to be theirs, until they find themselves on the radar of Texas Ranger Marcus (Jeff Bridges) looking for one last grand pursuit on the eve of his retirement. Final screenings at 2 and 7 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 3.

Bolshoi Ballet: ‘The Bright Stream’ (2 hours, 30 minutes)
