The Little Prince (2015/I) Saw this at the North America premier screening AKA the New York International Children's Film Festival but the national release was cancelled by Paramount Studios.

The Boy and the Beast (2015) My initial IMDb advanced search hadn't brought this one up. I did see it at the NY International Children's Film Festival... so it counts for me
Doctor Strange (2016)
Michael Moore in TrumpLand (2016)
Do Not Resist (2016 DOCUMENTARY)
The Lovers and the Despot (2016 DOCUMENTARY)
40. The Eagle Huntress (2016 DOCUMENTARY)

Manchester by the Sea (2016)

RiffTrax Live: Time Chasers (2016)
RiffTrax: Santa Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (2016)
The Battle of Algiers (1966)
Dekalog 1989 (Worked out to be 5 trips to the cinema? Or should I count it as one?)
Elevator to the Gallows (1958)

Running tally STANDS at 50 if I count the rewatches and the multiple trips to see the Dekalog series.

Can't remember if I saw Michael Moore's Where to Invade Next in late 2015 (with its limited NYC or Feb 2016). I'm betting it was in November 2015.

ok, I assume you are telling us that these are the movies that you went to a theater to see in 2016?

We saw a coupla these by treaming or ON DEMAND. I got bored after about the halfway point of batperson v superperson (with wonder person). I actually fell asleep. It was like being in a terribly turbulent plne ride. After a while, the dopamine kicks in and you say "WTF, Im gonna sleep this out. I heard that superperson died and left us with a coffin lid that vibrates at the end as if there WILL be a sequel.
OY I can hardly wait.

My wife lasted through the whole thing.

Im atill a sucker for this kinda stuff, I dont know why they dont make some good westerns (I did like last years True Grits redux though ) . I really hated Hail Caeser. It was so damned inside that mere mortals were kept from its witty presence.

What was "Wilderpeople about"?

What was "Wilderpeople about"?

Ricky, a Māori boy who is in foster system in New Zealand is too hard to handle for most families so he's given one chance to move to foster family before going to juvenile system.

He's a city kid who is moved to the middle of nowhere rural part of New Zealand to live with an older couple, (the new foster father is played by a great crotchety Sam Neil). The kid really hits it off lovingly with his new foster mother, [NOT REALLY A SPOILER as it's in the trailer and plot description], who dies really early in the movie.

Ricky runs away into the New Zealand wilderness and Hec, his foster father pursues to bring him back in order of child services to take him back because a one parent household isn't deemed suitable for foster system.

It sounds like a dire movie but it's very family friendly and it leans to a very humanist comedy where the two main characters bond and survive out in the wilderness.

I can't recommend it highly enough. It's very funny, moving, and charming. And the chemistry between the two characters is quite perfect and heartwarming.

sounds like something we'd want to see. Any cinematog of New Zealand?

It takes place in what they call the Outback of New Zealand (apparently they too have their own version of the Middle of nowhere. It's more jungle than Australia's desertish outback.)

My number is now 50.

Doctor Strange is listed twice in the above list. So my count here is the correct one.
