Editor's Note — Dinner and a Movie gives you a quick review of a new movie, where and when it plays and a dinner idea to go along with it.
Dinner: Head over to for dinner before or after the movie. Its rustic decor with areas of exposed bricks might make you feel like you're actually in a bat cave. OK, maybe not, but it's a great place for lunch or dinner. Try the wood-fired pizzas.

Sunrise Avenue at 9:15 a.m., 9:45 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11 a.m., 11:30 a.m., noon, 12:30 p.m., 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2 p.m., 2:45 p.m., 3:15 p.m., 3:45 p.m., 4:15 p.m., 4:45 p.m., 5:15 p.m., 5:45 p.m., 6:30 p.m., 7 p.m., 7:30 p.m., 8 p.m., 8:30 p.m., 9 p.m., 9:30 p.m., 10:15 p.m., 10:45 p.m., 11:15 p.m., 11:45 p.m. and 12:15 a.m.
Review: Christian Bale plays Bruce Wayne again, his fortune is dwindling, his body is battered, and his alter ego continues to elude police in "The Dark Knight Rises."
This is a tough movie to review because I don't want to spoil anything so I will try keep my review spoil-free.
Basically Batman is forced out of retirement after a new bad guy emerges from the sewer: A thug by the name of Bane (played by Tom Hardy). When he shows up, Gotham is over-run by anarchy.
The supporting actors are fantastic in this film. Commissioner Gordon is again played by Gary Oldman, Marion Cotillard plays a philanthropist, Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a cop, and Anne Hathaway digs her claws in the role of Cat Woman.
You will laugh, you will cry, and there is a good chance you may even clap at this end of this film, which is a whopping 2 hours and 45 minutes (though it doesn't feel like it). Hats off to Director Christopher Nolan who has put together perhaps the best comic book movie ever. The flick-o-meter gives "The Dark Knight Rises" a five out of five.
Sorry I couldn't give you more details on this film, but I really don't want to spoil it for you. Go see it, you'll know why. This is a great end to a trilogy involving a character that will continue to live forever in popular culture long after you and I are gone.
