Looking for some entertainment? Don't miss this week's lineup of adventure movies showing on the big screen in Colorado Springs.
Here are the top-ranked adventure films to catch in theaters, based on review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes' Tomatometer Score, which reflects the opinions of hundreds of film and television critics.
Raiders of the Lost Ark
When Dr. Indiana Jones – the tweed-suited professor who just happens to be a celebrated archaeologist – is hired by the government to locate the legendary Ark of the Covenant, he finds himself up against the entire Nazi regime.
With a Tomatometer Score of 95% and an Audience Score of 96% on Rotten Tomatoes, this '80s throwback comes highly recommended. The Associated Press' Bob Thomas said, "Entertainment that propels the audience inexorably from one excitement to the next," while Arthur Knight of the Hollywood Reporter noted, "It's all done with such a great spirit of high adventure and good humor that you don't even begin to count the corpses. ... The finale suggests that Ford's Indiana Jones character will soon be back with further adventures, and I'm all in favor of it."

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% and an Audience Score of 96% 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 19.

Pokémon Detective Pikachu
In a world where people collect pocket-size monsters (Pokémon) to do battle, a boy comes across an intelligent monster who seeks to be a detective.
With a Tomatometer Score of 66% and an Audience Score of 82% on Rotten Tomatoes, "Pokémon Detective Pikachu" is well worth a watch.
"Detective Pikachu is unrelentingly weird," noted Daniel Kaszor of the Globe and Mail, while NPR's Vincent Acovino said, "There's something admirable about a film that isn't afraid to have some fun with a property so established - and beloved - by its core audience."
Catch it on the big screen at Cinemark Tinseltown USA and XD (1545 E. Cheyenne Mountain Blvd.), Cinemark Carefree Circle and IMAX (3305 Cinema Point), and Regal Interquest & RPX (1120 Interquest Parkway) through Thursday, June 20. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
