Booksmart

Two academic teenage superstars realize, on the eve of their high school graduation, that they should have worked less and played more. Determined to never fall short of their peers, the girls set out on a mission to cram four years of fun into one night.

With a Tomatometer Score of 97 percent and an Audience Score of 76 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Booksmart" has been a must-watch since its release on May 24. Salon.com's Erin Keane said, "'Booksmart' puts a fresh spin on the coming-of-age night-of comedy because it's focused on two girls, one of whom is also queer," while Chandler Levack of the Globe and Mail noted, "Booksmart is a love letter for any young woman who has ever stayed home on a Friday night to watch a Ken Burns documentary."

Catch it on the big screen at AMC Classic Colorado Springs 10 (1550 Pulsar Drive) and Cinemark Carefree Circle and IMAX (3305 Cinema Point) through Wednesday, June 12. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

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.

"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," according to Oliver Jones of the Observer, while the San Diego Reader's Matthew Lickona said, "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."

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.

The Souvenir

A shy but ambitious film student falls into an intense, emotionally fraught relationship with a charismatic but untrustworthy older man.

"The Souvenir" already has a Tomatometer Score of 91 percent and an Audience Score of 40 percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

" 'The Souvenir' is an oddly alluring piece of filmmaking, rich and quiet and sneakily affecting," noted Adam Graham of the Detroit News, while the Seattle Times's Soren Andersen said, "'The Souvenir' reveals itself slowly, calmly and with great deliberation."

Catch it on the big screen at Kimballs Peak Three Theatres (115 E. Pikes Peak Ave.) through Thursday, June 13. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

Rocketman

The story of Elton John's life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.

With a Tomatometer Score of 91 percent and an Audience Score of 88 percent on Rotten Tomatoes, "Rocketman" has garnered plenty of praise since its release on May 31. The New Yorker's Anthony Lane said, "If you need somebody to recount the rise of a British rock god from pallid suburbia to the baroque extremes of fame, and to create a stir without causing too much of a fuss, Fletcher is your man," and the Chicago Reader's Leah Pickett noted, "The story reshuffles reality, especially time and facts, and the film is more enjoyable for it."

Catch it on the big screen at Cinemark Tinseltown USA and XD (1545 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd.), Kimballs Peak Three Theatres (115 E. Pikes Peak Ave.), Icon Cinema Colorado Springs (1818 Spring Water Place) and AMC Classic Colorado Springs 10 (1550 Pulsar Drive) through Wednesday, June 12. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
