Solo: A Star Wars Story only made $100 million at the box office, which I guess is bad for a Star Wars movie. But considering all the production troubles on what amounted to an unnecessary stand alone movie that even Disney was hesitant to promote, I don’t think it’s too bad. Still, it may make Disney rethink its Star Wars strategy. /Shane Hnetka
HEREDITARY This horror movie won over critics and audiences at Sundance Film Festival in January. The trailer even caused some controversy when it was accidently shown in theatres in front of Peter Rabbit. The premise sees a grandmother’s death trigger a whole bunch of creepy occult stuff for the bereaved family.
OCEAN’S 8 Sandra Bullock, Cate Blanchett, Anne Hathaway, Mindy Kaling, Sarah Paulson, Awkwafina, Rihanna and Helena Bonham Carter star in this all female version of Ocean’s 11. Gary Ross’ directorial credits include Pleasantville, Seabiscuit, The Hunger Games and Free State of Jones so hopefully he’s made a decent movie here.
HOTEL ARTEMIS Jodie Foster runs a secret hospital for injured criminals on the run from the law in “near future” Los Angeles. Sterling K. Brown comes in for help, but then bad guys show up, looking to get some stolen goods back.
THE INCREDIBLES 2 Even if Solo doesn’t make its money back, Disney isn’t exactly hurting for cash, not with Black Panther, Avengers: Infinity War and now this sequel to one of their more popular Pixar movies. Granted, it’s been 14 years, but this should still do pretty good box office as we follow the further adventures of the super-powered family created by Brad Bird. Hopefully, it’s more than just a bunch of Mr. Mom jokes.
TAG Jeremy Renner, Ed Helms, Jake Johnson, Annabell Wallis, Hannibal Buress, Isla Fisher, Rashida Jones, Leslie Bibb and John Hamm star in this true-life story about a group of friends who have been playing the same game of tag since they were kids.
JURASSIC WORLD: FALLEN KINGDOM After roaming free for three years, the dinosaurs on Isla Nublar are threatened with extinction when a volcano erupts, so a decision is made to mount a rescue operation. Gee, what could possibly go wrong with that (cough, The Lost World: Jurassic Park, cough)? To make matters worse, the corporation behind the plan is evil! I’ve got nothing against dinosaurs — in fact, I love them. But would it kill Hollywood to do a dino movie without any ties to Jurassic Park? Sadly, all it gives us is more of the same.
7:00 NEVER STEADY NEVER STILL This debut feature by Kathleen Hepburn sees a B.C. woman struggle to cope with Parkinson’s while her son, who works in the Alberta oil patch, wrestles with his sexual identity. Encore screenings June 11, 13 at 9 p.m., June 12, 15 at 7 p.m.
9:00 OH LUCY! A single, repressed Tokyo woman enrols in an English class where she’s required to don a blonde wig and take on the alter ego of “Lucy”. That sounds like a great premise for a comedy, but the film takes a dark turn when her niece runs off with the instructor (Josh Hartnett) and she ends up travelling to California to search for her. Encore screenings June 11, 13 at 7 p.m., June 12, 15 at 9 p.m.
8:00 DAZED AND CONFUSED Richard Linklater’s classic comedy about Texas teenagers in high school in the 1970s.

THE SEAGULL Elisabeth Moss, Saoirse Ronan, Annette Bening and Corey Stoll star in this costume drama based on the Chekov play where a group of people gather at a country estate and a bunch of romantic complications ensue.
