    “Challengers” -  (R; 2 hours, 12 minutes) -  Tennis player turned coach Tashi has transformed her husband, Art, into a world-famous Grand Slam champion. To snap him out of his recent losing streak, she enters him into a “Challenger” event, where he faces his former best friend and Tashi’s ex-boyfriend. Directed by Luca Guadagnino, “Challengers” stars Zendaya as Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach. Married to Art, who is struggling with his game, Tashi’s plan for his redemption takes an unexpected turn when he squares off against his former friend Patrick, portrayed by Josh O’Connor. As their pasts collide and tensions rise, Tashi must weigh the cost of victory. Wednesday, May 22, 2 p.m. (OCAP), Thursday, May 24, 7 p.m.

    “It’s far more thrilling, and triumphant, than a simple tale of someone lifting a trophy, or love conquering all.” – David Sims, The Atlantic

    ”Unsung Hero” - (PG13; 1 hour 52 minutes) -  When David Smallbone’s successful music company collapses, he moves his family from Australia to the United States in search of a brighter future. With nothing more than their six children, their suitcases, and their love of music, David and his pregnant wife Helen set out to rebuild their lives from the ground up. Based on a remarkable true story, a mum’s faith stands against all odds; and inspires her husband and children to hold onto theirs. Opening Friday, May 24, 7 p.m., Saturday, May 25, 7 p.m., Sunday, May 26, 2 p.m., Monday, May 27, 7 p.m., Tuesday, May 28, 7 p.m., Wednesday, May 29, 2 p.m. (OCAP), and 7 p.m., Thursday, May 30, 7 p.m.

    "Unsung Hero takes place in the early 1990s, but this reliably inspirational biopic about the Smallbone showbiz dynasty has timeless themes about the power of family love and loyalty. It's a faith-based drama that isn't preachy about religion." – Carla Hay, Culture Mix

    Coming soon: “The Fall Guy” - (PG13; 2 hours, 6 minutes) -  He’s a stuntman, and like everyone in the stunt community, he gets blown up, shot, crashed, thrown through windows and dropped from the highest of heights, all for our entertainment.
