Toy Story 4

Woody has always been confident about his place in the world and that his priority is taking care of his kid, whether that's Andy or Bonnie. But when Bonnie adds a reluctant new toy called "Forky" to her room, a road trip adventure alongside old and new friends will show Woody how big the world can be for a toy.

Boasting a Tomatometer Score of 98% and an Audience Score of 95% on Rotten Tomatoes, "Toy Story 4" has proven to be a critical darling since its release on June 21.

The Washington Post's Ann Hornaday said, "As an ode to spunk, ingenuity, teamwork, storytelling and animation artistry, 'Toy Story 4' fires on every spirited cylinder," while Moira MacDonald of The Seattle Times noted, "Did we really need another 'Toy Story' movie? Turns out, we did."

You can catch it at AMC Newport Centre 11 (30-300 Mall Drive West) through Monday, July 1. Click here for showtimes and tickets.

Annabelle Comes Home

Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target — the Warrens' ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.

Since its release on Wednesday, June 26, "Annabelle Comes Home" has garnered a Tomatometer Score of 67% and an Audience Score of 73% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"'Annabelle Comes Home' is a smart, controlled film, made with considerable integrity," according to Mick LaSalle of The San Francisco Chronicle, while IndieWire's Eric Kohn said, "'Annabelle Comes Home' delivers on its title with the best 'Conjuring' spin-off so far, in large part because it has such modest aims."

You can catch it at AMC Newport Centre 11 (30-300 Mall Drive West) through Sunday, June 30. Click here for showtimes and tickets.


A struggling musician realizes he's the only person on Earth who can remember The Beatles.

Set for wide release today, "Yesterday" already has a Tomatometer Score of 64% on Rotten Tomatoes.

"Even if this modern fairy tale doesn't hold up on close inspection, [director Danny] Boyle does his best to make sure the ride is enjoyable," noted Katie Walsh of The Chicago Tribune, while Kaplan vs. Kaplan's Jeanne Kaplan said, "The success of 'Yesterday' lies in the performance by [star Himesh] Patel. He is extraordinary."

It's screening at AMC Newport Centre 11 (30-300 Mall Drive West) through Sunday, June 30. Click here for showtimes and tickets.
