Barbie (nationwide re-release) – Living the perfect life, Barbie (Margot Robbie) has it all. Until one day when things start changing and her perfect world seems to fall apart. Barbie now has to choose between her perfect life and finding out about the real world. Driving out of Barbie Land with Ken (Ryan Gosling), the two set out on a journey of self-discovery, experiencing life without perfection. Click here for showtimes.

The Zone of Interest – Rudolf Höss (Christian Friedel), the commandant of Auschwitz, lives with his wife Hedwig (Sandra Hüller) and their four children in a house right next to the camp. As they play in the garden, sounds can be heard coming from the concentration camp — trains arrive, shots ring out, Nazis shout orders and smoke rises from chimneys. Nothing perturbs the family. They receive goods taken from Jewish prisoners, have prisoners do chores, and throw parties for friends and neighbors in the shadow of Auschwitz. Opening nationwide. Click here to read our review.

Four Daughters – Olfa Hamrouni’s two eldest daughters disappeared in 2015, leaving her and her two youngest daughters, Eya and Tayssir (then aged 10 and 12), heartbroken. In an effort to piece together their story, professional actors play the missing sisters. When the memories they revisit together become too difficult, Tunisian-Egyptian actor Hind Sabri takes on the role of Olfa. Playing in Toronto/Vancouver; opens in additional cities starting February 2. Click here to read our review. Click here for showtimes.

The Wizard of Oz 85th Anniversary – Judy Garland stars as Dorothy Gale, a young Kansas farm girl who dreams of a land “somewhere over the rainbow.” Dorothy’s dream comes true when she, her dog Toto, and her family’s house are transported by a tornado to a world unlike anything she has seen before. Unfortunately, she makes a mortal enemy of a wicked witch when the house falls on the hag’s sister. Befriended by a scarecrow, a tin man and a cowardly lion — and protected by a pair of enchanted ruby slippers — Dorothy sets off along a yellow brick road for the Emerald City to beseech the all-powerful Wizard of Oz for his help to return home. This special 85th anniversary event includes exclusive insight from Leonard Maltin. Click here for showtimes.

Godzilla Minus One/Minus Color – The hit movie Godzilla Minus One is re-released in black and white. Japan, devastated after the war, faces a new threat in the form of Godzilla. How will the country confront this impossible situation? Click here for showtimes.
