1) This Isn’t Funny (9:30 a.m, 86 min.) Director: Paul Ashton.

2) Eadweard (noon, 104 min.). Director: Kyle Rideout
First-time director Kyle Rideout portrays the magic of filmmaking in this biopic about one of cinema's earliest innovators, Eadweard Muybridge, a man whose name is almost as breathtaking as his experiments with motion photography. In a script that blends romance and 19th-century science, the story is a compelling one, dramatized by all sorts of cinematic tricks to capture the thrill of Muybridge's early work. Hell on Wheels' fans will recognize Christopher Heyerdahl in a supporting role.
3) Cut Bank (1:45 p.m., 92 min.). Director: Matt Shakman
Liam Hemsworth stars as a guy who’ll do whatever he can to get the hell out of Cut Bank, Montana. Yet, his boss (Billy Bob Thornton) doesn’t pay him enough so he can afford to leave town. When he accidentally videotapes a man’s murder, he might have punched his ticket to move to another city or he might just have set the wheels in motion for his own murder.
