“IF” - (PG; 1 hour, 45 minutes) -  From writer and director John Krasinski, “IF” is about a girl who discovers that she can see everyone’s imaginary friends — and what she does with that superpower — as she embarks on a magical adventure to reconnect forgotten IFs with their kids. Stars Ryan Reynolds, John Krasinski, Cailey Fleming, Fiona Shaw, and the voices of Phoebe Waller-Bridge, Louis Gossett Jr. and Steve Carell (who voices a huge, cuddly purple creature) alongside many more as the wonderfully unique characters that reflect the incredible power of a child’s imagination. Wednesday, June 19 at 2 (OCAP) & 7 p.m.; Thursday, June 20 at 7 p.m.

“Bright, imaginative and visually charming with wonderful creature designs, IF wears its very big heart on its sleeve.” – Wenlei Ma, The Nightly (AU)

“Summer Camp” - (PG; 1 hour, 36 minutes) -  “Summer Camp” tells the story of Nora (Diane Keaton), Ginny (Kathy Bates), and Mary (Alfre Woodard), who have been best friends since being inseparable at summer camp. As the years have passed, they’ve seen each other less and less, so when the chance to reunite for a summer camp reunion arises, they all take it, some begrudgingly and others excitedly. Each of their lives might not be where they’d imagined, but one thing is for sure — Nora, Ginny, and Mary need each other, and summer camp reminds them why. The ensemble comedy, including Eugene Levy, Beverly D’Angelo, and Dennis Haysbert, teems with food fights, river rafting, and emotional revelations. Opening Friday, June 21 - 7 p.m.; then on Saturday, June 22 - 7 p.m., Sunday, June 23 - 2 p.m., Monday, June 24 - 7 p.m., Tuesday, June 25 - 7 p.m., Wednesday, June 26 at 2 (OCAP) and 7 p.m. and Thursday, June 27 at 7 p.m.

Film note: The Production Executive for this film is none other than Boothbay Harbor’s own Nicholas Erickson who graduated from Boothbay Region High School in 2007 and has made his Hollywood dreams of producing movies a reality!

“Through good gags and misfires, the movie is mild entertainment with the advantage of bringing this big band of mature actors together for a serving of fun with a side of hard-won wisdom.” – Thelma Adams, AARP Movies for Grownups

Coming soon: “Horizon: An American Saga - Chapter 1” - Kevin Costner’s zealous, multi-character Western epic explores the lure of the Old West; how it was won—and lost—through the blood, sweat and tears of many. Opening Friday, June 28.
