Apollo 11

A look at the Apollo 11 mission to land on the moon led by commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin.

Boasting a Tomatometer Score of 100 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Apollo 11" has proven to be a critical darling since its release on March 1.

The Associated Press' Jake Coyle said, "Apollo 11 might not tell you anything you don't already know about the moon landing. But it will make you feel it, and see it, anew."

While Brian Lowry of CNN.com noted, "It's a wonderfully nostalgic if somewhat antiseptic reminder of what it meant to first break the bonds of Earth."

Get a piece of the action at Regal Tara 4 (2345 Cheshire Bridge Road North) and Regal Atlantic Station 18 IMAX & RPX (261 19th St. NW) through Wednesday, March 13. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse

Miles Morales is juggling his life between being a high school student and being a Spider-Man. When Wilson "Kingpin" Fisk uses a super collider, others from across the Spider-Verse are transported to this dimension.

With a Tomatometer Score of 97 percent and an Audience Score of 94 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" has been a must-watch since its release in December of 2018.

The New York Times' Lawrence Ware said, "This film manages the delicate feat of embracing its source material while also satirizing it."

And the Atlantic's David Sims said, "The latest entry in a fully saturated genre that somehow, through sheer creative gumption, does something new."

It's playing at Plaza Theatre (1049 Ponce De Leon Avenue NE) and Regal Atlantic Station 18 IMAX & RPX (261 19th St. NW) through Thursday, March 14. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

Being John Malkovich

One day at work, unsuccessful puppeteer Craig finds a portal into the head of actor John Malkovich. The portal soon becomes a passion for anybody who enters its mad and controlling world of overtaking another human body.

With a Tomatometer Score of 93 percent and an Audience Score of 87 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, this '90s flick comes highly recommended.

The Associated Press' David Germain said, "Fabulously funny and delightfully disturbed, 'Being John Malkovich' is the ultimate voyeur movie, a dark and at times malevolent take on what it's like to be in someone else's skull, looking out."

In the mood for popcorn? It's playing at Plaza Theatre (1049 Ponce De Leon Avenue NE) through Monday, March 11. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
