Avengers: Endgame

After the devastating events of "Avengers: Infinity War," the universe is in ruins due to the efforts of the Mad Titan, Thanos. With the help of remaining allies, the Avengers must assemble once more in order to undo Thanos' actions and restore order to the universe once and for all, no matter what consequences may be in store.

With a Tomatometer Score of 94 percent and an Audience Score of 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Avengers: Endgame" has garnered plenty of praise since its release on April 26. The Observer's Oliver Jones said, "What you will be getting when you walk into an inevitably overstuffed movie theater is something singular that reflects our age in a way that none of the MCU films that preceded it have-indeed, very few Hollywood spectacles ever have." While Matthew Lickona of the San Diego Reader noted, "The MCU will go on and on, but this chapter - and the American pragmatism vs. American ideals bromance that drove it - have well and truly come to their 'Excelsior! Nuff said!' moment."

Get a piece of the action at Cinemark Tinseltown USA and XD (1545 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd.), Icon Cinema Colorado Springs (1818 Spring Water Place), AMC Classic Colorado Springs 10 (1550 Pulsar Drive), and Cinemark Carefree Circle and IMAX (3305 Cinema Point) through Wednesday, June 12.

The Goonies

A young teenager named Mikey Walsh finds an old treasure map in his father's attic. Hoping to save their homes from demolition, Mikey and his friends Data Wang, Chunk Cohen and Mouth Devereaux run off on a big quest to find the secret stash of Pirate One-Eyed Willie.

With a Tomatometer Score of 71 percent and an Audience Score of 90 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, this 1980s classic is a worthy candidate for your entertainment.

"'The Goonies' is the kind of hyperactive peril-packed movie young audiences can't resist," according to Kathleen Carroll of the New York Daily News. While the Hollywood Reporter's Arthur Knight said, "The action at the center of Chris Columbus' script occasionally falters and generally feels manufactured, but the kids go about their chores as if convinced that all their make-believe is true."

You can catch it at Icon Cinema Colorado Springs (1818 Spring Water Place) through Wednesday, June 12. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

The Secret Life of Pets 2

What happens with our pets when we’re not home? This movie continues the original movie with Max and his friends.

Set to be released on Friday, June 7, "The Secret Life of Pets 2" already has a Tomatometer Score of 61 percenton Rotten Tomatoes.

"At least people will laugh with this film because it perfectly draws its humor from the tendencies of cats and dogs, from a cat's magnetic desire to knock over objects to a dog's natural instinct to chase a ball at any cost," noted Samantha Incorvaia of Arizona Republic, while the New York Times's Bilge Ebiri said, "Too scattered narratively to cohere, and yet somehow still funny enough to justify its existence, 'The Secret Life of Pets 2' makes for an entertaining trifle."

It's playing at Cinemark Tinseltown USA and XD (1545 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd.), Icon Cinema Colorado Springs (1818 Spring Water Place), AMC Classic Colorado Springs 10 (1550 Pulsar Drive), and Cinemark Carefree Circle and IMAX (3305 Cinema Point) through Wednesday, June 12.
