And the Pitch!

DC League of Super-Pets follows Krypto, the faithful dog of the intrepid hero Superman. Krypto possesses the same host of super-human abilities as his owner, serving as a sidekick in his crime-fighting career. When Superman and the Justice League are captured by the villainous Lex Luthor, it is up to Krypto and a band of powered-up pets to save the day and free the imprisoned heroes. The film boasts an all-star cast, featuring performances from Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, John Krazinski and Keanu Reeves. Don’t miss the Super-Pet’s debut appearance, playing at both the Shoebox Theatre and the Civic Theatre.
The 1982 classic Fast Times at Ridgemont High celebrates its 40 year anniversary this week. The film follows an awkward love triangle, as well as the antics of a slacking student and his ultra-strict teacher. Don’t miss this cult-classic comedy when it returns to The Shoebox and The Civic Theatre on Thursday, August 18th.
New to our theatres is Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris, a charming, quirky film about a London maid who embarks on her dream trip to Paris. Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris is equally as funny as it is charming, taking place in the mid 1950s. Be sure to see this enchanting film when it arrives at our theatres on Friday, August 19th.
Two incredible films, Top Gun: Maverick and Nope, will be returning to our theatres this week. The long-awaited sequel to Tom Cruise’s 1986 hit has had astonishing success, being dubbed one of the greatest films ever made. Released over 35 years after its predecessor, Top Gun: Maverick effortlessly captures the nostalgia of the original film while adding its own fresh, unique spin to the franchise. Fans sat with bated breath for over two years, anticipating the release of Jordan Peele’s third feature film. Nope delivers an experience that is tense, striking, and at times utterly harrowing. Don’t miss Top Gun’s fast-paced airborne action and Nope’s thrilling alien eeriness. Visit the What’s On tab for ticket sales and showtimes.
