All times are p.m., unless otherwise noted.

Entourage (4): The HBO series comes to the big screen with unimpressive results. The film is entertaining enough, most critics say, but feels like a dragged-out episode of the TV show. The original cast is here, trying to find its way through Hollywood. R. Amusement Park Drive-In.

Gallows (opening): A high school student is accidentally hanged during a school play. Twenty years later, the school decides to stage the play again. What could possibly go wrong? Hint: This is a horror movie. Travis Cluff and Chris Lofing (Stage Fright) wrote and directed.  R. Wynnsong 10 at noon, 2:10, 4:20, 7 and 9:10. Shiloh 14 at 12:30, 2:45, 5, 7:15 and 9:30.

Inside Out (4): In this animated Pixar film, a girl has to move with her father to a new job in San Francisco. Her emotions, voiced by such actors as Amy Poehler, Lewis Black and Bill Hader, struggle to adjust inside the headquarters of her brain. Critics are calling it one of Pixar’s best. PG. Wynnsong 10 in 2D at 12:45, 3:30, 6:55 and 9:20. Shiloh 14 in 3D at 11:30 a.m., 2:05, 4:40, 7:15 and 9:50 and in 2D at 12:20, 1, 2:55, 5:30, 7 and 8:05.

Iris (opening): Documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, 87, took on this project about Iris Apfel, 93, a fashion maven in New York City for decades. “I feel lucky to be working,” she says. “If you’re lucky enough to do something you love, everything else follows.” PG13. Art House Cinema and Pub at 4:15 and 8:30 on Friday, Saturday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Jurassic World (5): Dinosaurs are cloned for human entertainment for the fourth time in this series. Surely nothing will go wrong this time. Chris Pratt, Bryce Dallas Howard and Vincent D’Onofrio star. PG13. Wynnsong 10 in 3D at 12:15, 3:10, 7:05 and 9:55 and in 2D at noon, 3, 7 and 9:50. Shiloh 14 in 3D and Big D format at 9:45, in 3D at 1, 4, 7 and 10 and in 2D at 12:30, 3:30, 6:30 and 9:30. Also on Friday and Saturday at Amusement Park Drive-In.

Magic Mike XXL (2): This sequel to the modestly budgeted Steven Soderbergh film was written by and stars Channing Tatum, who also starred the first time around as a male stripper looking for another line of work. In the follow-up, he hooks up with fellow strippers to travel to a gathering of fellow strippers. R. Wynnsong 10 at 12:50, 4:10, 7:10 and 9:55. Shiloh 14 at 1, 4, 7 and 10. Also at Amusement Park Drive-In.

Manglehorn (opening): Al Pacino and Holly Hunter star in a box office flop that drew mixed reviews from critics. Pacino plays a Texas locksmith mourning a woman who left him but who takes a shine to a bank teller (Hunter). That seems to be about it for plot, but the performances are predictably fine. Art House Cinema and Pub at 2 and 6:15 on Saturday and at 6:15 on Friday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Max (2): This family-friendly movie is about a military dog in Afghanistan that is adopted by the family of his dead handler and forms a close bond with the handler’s brother. Boaz Yakin (Remember the Titans, Uptown Girls) wrote and directed. PG. Wynnsong 10 at noon, 3, 6:45 and 9:30. Shiloh 14 at noon, 2:45, 5:30 and 8:15.

Minions (opening): This animated comedy serves as a sort of prequel to the Despicable Me movies, focusing on the lovable lackeys who in this movie get involved with Scarlet Overkill, an evil villain voiced by Sandra Bullock. Perhaps the rest of the film makes more sense than that sentence. PG. Wynnsong 10 in 3D at 12:25, 2:45, 5:05, 7:25 and 9:45 and in 2D at 12:10, 2:30, 4:50, 7:10 and 9:30. Shiloh 14 in Big D format and 3D at noon, 2:25, 4:50 and 7:15, in 3D at 11:45 a.m., 2:10, 4:35, 7 and 9:25 and in 2D at 12:30, 2:45, 5:30 and 8:15. Also at Amusement Park Drive-In.

Self/less (opening): Ben Kingsley plays a man dying of cancer who has his consciousness transferred into the young, healthy body of Ryan Reynolds. Sounds promising, but most critics say the movie doesn’t make much of its premise, devolving into a series of shootouts and action scenes. PG13. Wynnsong 10 at 12:20, 4:15, 7:10 and 10. Shiloh 14 at 1, 4, 7 and 10.

Spy (6): In this unlikely comedy, Melissa McCarthy (Identity Thief) teams up again with writer and director Paul Feig to play a CIA analyst who goes underground to prevent global disaster. But critics find it hilarious and a tremendous display of Ms. McCarthy’s considerable talents. R. Shiloh 14 at 1 and 7.

Ted 2 (3): Seth McFarlane (A Million Ways to Die in the West) wrote, directed and plays the title character in this sequel to the raunchy but popular comedy hit. In this episode, Ted, a stuffed bear, has to prove in court that he’s a person. Mark Wahlberg and Amanda Seyfried also star. R. Shiloh 14 at 4 and 9:40.

Terminator Genisys (2): If you have seen the previews, you may get the feeling that this is a movie you have already seen. In some ways, it is. Arnold Schwarzenegger, 67, plays the Terminator, and he’s not the only thing in this film showing its age. Optimistically, the producers see this as the first episode in a new trilogy for the long-running series. PG13. Wynnsong 10 in 3D at 12:15 and 7:05 and in 2D at 4 and 10. Shiloh 14 in 3D at 4 and 10 and in 2D at 1, 4, 7 and 10.
