We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you. DONATE

Rock of Ages, Whitney

New DVDs Tuesday, Oct. 9


Rock of Ages - WARNER BROS.
  • Warner Bros.
  • Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages
The ’80s hair-metal-Glee flick that proved Tom Cruise rocks, Poison songs are timelessly bad, Malin Akerman should be in everything, and even Russell Brand can’t be the worst part of a movie that also stars Julianne Hough. (Warner Bros.)

Whitney: Season 1
The most (wrongly) maligned comedy of the 2011 season, starring Whitney Cummings and Chris D’Elia as a marginally dysfunctional couple with wildly dysfunctional friends. Compared to NBC’s new comedies, looking even better. (Universal)

It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia: Season 7
The season of Fat Mac! Sure, there’s also crack ’hos, swipes at Toddlers & Tiaras and Jersey Shore, Dee’s IRS audit, Frank’s brother, Facebook stalking and, of course, CharDee MacDennis, but it’s still the season of Fat Mac! Own it! (Fox)

Annie Claus Is Coming to Town
Eagleheart’s Maria Thayer stars as Annie, daughter of Santa, who splits the North Pole and ends up in Los Angeles. Soon, she falls in love with a traditionalist toy-shop owner (Sam Page) and resolves/reinforces those daddy issues. (Gaiam)

Holliston: Season 1
The FearNet (it’s a cable channel way up there somewhere) comedy series about two Holliston, Mass., pals chasing their dream of becoming horror filmmakers, with guests like Dee Snider and GWAR’s Oderus Urungus. Funny and bloody. (Image)
