September 2022 Movies to See

2020 Motion Picture Slate: Mark your calendars for movies to see in 2020 from studios such as Disney, Warner Bros., Universal Pictures, Paramount and more! -

August was another fun month at the movies. Bullet Train was awesome although I haven’t had a chance to do a write up about it yet. But I did have a chance to share thoughts on Jordan Peele’s NOPE movie that we were delayed in seeing due to illness. Even though we weren’t able to see Nope when it first released, we were able to enjoy it because the story line hadn’t been spoiled for us.

I’m not sure which movies we will head to in September, but there are a few that look like real winners. Check out the various options!

Riotsville U.S.A.

Release Date: September 16, 2022 (Get Tickets)
Genre: Documentary
Cast: Archival footage
Studio: Magnolia Pictures
Official Website: Riotsville USA

Welcome to RIOTSVILLE, USA, a turning point in American history where the protest movements of the late 1960s came into conflict with increasingly militarized police departments. Focusing on military training footage of Army-built model towns called “Riotsvilles,” where military and police were trained to respond to civil disorder in the aftermath of the Kerner Commission created by President Lyndon B. Johnson, director Sierra Pettengill’s kaleidoscopic all-archival documentary reconstructs the formation of a national consciousness obsessed with maintaining law and order by any means necessary. Drawing insight from a time similar to our own, RIOTSVILLE, USA pulls focus on American institutional control and offers a compelling case that if the history of race in America rhymes, it is by design.

Life is perfect, with every resident’s needs met by the company. All they ask in return is discretion and unquestioning commitment to the Victory cause.
