"The new Kong: Skull Island really gets it right — the exotic adventure, the spectacular special effects, the towering terrors. It’s a big hunk of nostalgic fun, reminding us of the 1933 original even as it monkeys around with the classic story." - Stephen Whitty, New York Daily News

Thursday, August 17 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.
"Connery (an actor as well, and the son of Sean Connery) keeps the performers honest, and a few of the father-son tussles, with their admixture of love and envy, are powerful." - Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor

Ghost in the Shell

Thursday, August 24 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.
"Spectacularly honoring the spirit and aesthetic of Mamoru Oshii’s beloved animated adaptations without resorting wholly to slavish cosplay, this is smart, hard-lacquered entertainment that may just trump the original films for galloping storytelling momentum and sheer, coruscating visual excitement." - Guy Lodge, Variety

Going in Style
Directed by Zach Braff. Starring Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, & Alan Arkin. Theatrically released in 2017. 96 Minutes; Rated PG-13 for drug content, language and some suggestive material.
Thursday, August 31 at 1:00 (matinee) and 7:00 p.m.

"Remember how the original John Wick snuck up and wowed us in 2014? Now he's back and better than ever. John Wick: Chapter 2 is the real deal in action-movie fireworks – it's pure cinema, an adrenaline rocket of image and sound that explodes on contact." - Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
