Spring Breakers

Rated R, running time 92 minutes.

Starts Friday at Sierra Cinemas.

Brit (Ashley Benson), Candy (Vanessa Hudgens), Cotty (Rachel Korine) and Faith (Selena Gomez) have been best friends since grade school. They live together in a boring college dorm and are hungry for adventure. All they have to do is save enough money for spring break to get their shot at having some real fun. A serendipitous encounter with rapper “Alien” (James Franco) promises to provide the girls with all the thrill and excitement they could hope for. With the encouragement of their new friend, it soon becomes unclear how far the girls are willing to go to experience a spring break they will never forget. — Official Site

What if everything you love was taken from you in the blink of an eye? “The Host” is the next epic love story from the creator of the “Twilight Saga,” worldwide bestselling author Stephenie Meyer.

56 UP

Unrated, running time 139 minutes.

Shows 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday at The Nevada Theatre.

Director Michael Apted revisits the same group of British-born adults he has been chronicling in documentaries every seven years since they were each 7 years old. The original concept, starting in 1964’s “Seven Up,” was to interview 14 children from diverse backgrounds from all over England, asking them about their lives and their dreams for the future. Every seven years, Apted, a researcher for Seven Up, has been back to talk to them, examining the progression of their lives and always creating a new film chapter of their lives. Now, as they turn 56, more life-changing decisions and surprising developments are revealed. “Apted creates a graceful back-and-forth from the earlier films to the present, and the experience of seeing people who have lived so much on screen is quite profound.” — John Anderson, Newsday.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Rated PG-13, running time 94 minutes.

Now Showing at Del Oro Theatre.

In this sequel, the G.I. Joes are not only fighting their mortal enemy Cobra; they are forced to contend with threats from within the government that jeopardize their very existence. — Paramount
