Openingjune19
Summer is officially here! That means blockbusters on remakes on more blockbusters – but hey, I ain’t complaining! With Jurassic World just around the corner, and Entourage I will basically be living in the past (or at my local theater).

So whether you choose to checkout that indie movie you’ve heard so much about, or the latest big studio release, don’t forget to click on the movie title below to view the trailer. We want to make sure you know what you are getting into before you head to the theater.
