  • "Space Station 3-D" (2002)

    Not rated, 46 min. Directed by Toni Myers. Narrated by Tom Cruise.

    Given the amount of cinematic science fiction in the last quarter-century, modern moviegoers may feel they've seen it all where space travel is concerned. But Space Station 3-D provides a fresh and intensely personal experience of the final frontier. Employing footage shot by actual astronauts and cosmonauts using IMAX 3D cameras, it puts you there 220 miles above the earth, inside the International Space Station, and outside it, too. Breathtaking vistas of the planet below and the cosmos beyond, coupled with detailed looks at life in zero gravity and the testimony of an international crew of astronauts, revive our sense of the wonder and the danger that go into every voyage into space. Robert Faires Read a full review of "Space Station 3-D".

  • Deadpool (2016)

  • Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

    Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015)

    Rated PG-13, 135 min. Directed by J.J. Abrams. Starring Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Max von Sydow, Peter Mayhew, Andy Serkis, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker.

    It’s decades after the destruction of the Death Star, and that good old scoundrel Han Solo (Ford) and former Princess – now General – Leia (Fisher) are getting a bit long in the tooth, but, as ever, there’s an evil empire to thwart. Easily the most anticipated (and critic-proof) film of the year, J.J. Abrams' The Force Awakens is a rollicking hybridization of everything that made Lucas’ original trio of Star Wars films so thrillingly watchable, bolstered by the addition of memorable new core characters: lone scavenger Rey (Ridley), and Finn (Boyega), an Imperial Stormtrooper who decides that mass murder isn’t his style. There’s much to love about this particular chapter of the rebooted franchise, although to say much more might engender spoilers, and you’re likely going to see the film for yourself very soon. The Force Awakens is exactly what it needs to be: an old-school Saturday afternoon sci-fi matinee writ big. Read a full review of Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens.
