    “Elvis” – (PG-13; 2 hours and 39 minutes) - This is not your standard rock and roll biopic. Director Baz Luhrmann shakes it up with high energy and dazzling style, showcasing the talents of Austin Butler as Elvis with his sultry-smooth southern drawl and sexy hip gyrations that made millions of teenage girls swoon in 1957. The film explores the life and music of Elvis Presley, seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his overbearing and enigmatic manager, Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley's rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America. Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis's life, Priscilla Presley (Olivia DeJonge). Plays at 7 p.m. Thursday, June 30, through Saturday, July 2; Monday, July 4 through Thursday, July 7; and at 2 p.m. Sunday, July 3.

    “Brian and Charles” – (PG; 1 hour, 30 minutes) - An endearing outlier, Brian lives alone in a Welsh valley, inventing oddball contraptions that seldom work. After finding a discarded mannequin head, Brian gets an idea. Three days, a washing machine, and sundry spare parts later, he’s invented Charles, an artificially intelligent robot who learns English from a dictionary and proves a charming, cheeky companion. Before long, however, Charles also develops autonomy. Intrigued by the wider world — or whatever lies beyond the cottage where Brian has hidden him away — Charles craves adventure. Opening Friday, July 8, 7 p.m., Saturday, July 9, 7 p.m., Sunday, July 10, 2 p.m., Monday, July 11, 7 p.m., Tuesday, July 12, 7 p.m., Wednesday, July 13, 7 p.m., Thursday, July 14, 7 p.m.
