The Reg Lenna Center for the Arts will show the films Past Lives and Mean Girls this week.

Past Lives (Wednesday at 7 p.m.) is an Academy Award nominee for Best Picture. Bea (Sydney Sweeney) Nora and Hae Sung, two deeply connected childhood friends, are wrest apart after Nora’s family emigrates from South Korea. Two decades later, they are reunited in New York for one fateful week as they confront notions of destiny, love, and the choices that make a life, in this heartrending modern romance. Past Lives is rated PG-13 and is 106 minutes long.

From the comedic mind of Tina Fey comes a new twist on the modern classic, Mean Girls (Saturday. at 8 p.m.) New student Cady Heron (Angourie Rice) is welcomed into the top of the social food chain by the elite group of popular girls called “The Plastics,” ruled by the conniving queen bee Regina George (Renee Rapp) and her minions Gretchen (Bebe Wood) and Karen (Avantika). However, when Cady makes the major misstep of falling for Regina’s ex-boyfriend Aaron Samuels (Christopher Briney), she finds herself prey in Regina’s crosshairs. As Cady sets to take down the group’s apex predator with the help of her outcast friends Janis (Auli’i Cravalho) and Damian (Jaquel Spivey), she must learn how to stay true to herself while navigating the most cutthroat jungle of all: high school. Mean Girls is rated PG-13 and is 120 minutes long.
