ON THE BOWERY Lionel Rogosin’s recently revived 1957 docudrama combines actors delivering lines and real demimonde denizens in its story of a man who comes to New York to seek his fortune and winds up trying to escape the titular skid row. At the Charles Theatre April 26 at 9 p.m.

PIRATES! BAND OF MISFITS The creators of Wallace and Gromit return with a seafaring stop-motion adventure featuring the voices of Hugh Grant, Salma Hayek, Jeremy Piven, Brendan Gleeson, and . . . Al Roker. Opens April 27.

THE RAVEN V for Vendetta director James McTeigue gives us literary screen heartthrob John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe in a speculative action/thriller sort of thing set in Baltimore. Wonder how it ends? Opens April 27.
