“ZOOTOPIA”

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:35, 3:10 p.m.

CRITICS’ CHOICE

“A Bigger Splash” — Luca Guadagnino’s movie is a swooning cinematic appeal to the senses — two hours of al fresco lovemaking, gorgeous scenery and simmering erotic warfare with Ralph Fiennes’ acting on glorious, supremely uninhibited display. (2:04) R.

“The Jungle Book” — By turns sweetly amusing and scarily unnerving, crammed with story, song and computer-generated visual splendors, this revisiting of the old Rudyard Kipling tales aims to be a model of modern crowd-pleasing entertainment. (1:51) PG.

“Love & Friendship” — Whit Stillman has finally made a full-fledged Jane Austen adaptation, a master class on the art of comic timing, taking the author’s early epistolary novella and infusing it with his own droll, mocking spirit and expert way of looking behind societal facades. (1:32) PG.

Barkley Village 16 IMAX 3D: Thurs. 12:20, 3 p.m.

“The Angry Birds Movie” — Based on the mobile video game, it proves to be more than just a gimmick, and doesn’t skimp on any of the quirky wackiness that you might expect from a film about blob-shaped, flightless birds battling pigs. (1:37) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:10, 4:05, 6:05, 8:30 p.m.; Fri. 3:10, 5:30, 7:50, 10:20 p.m.; Sun. 10:40, 3:10, 5:30, 7:50, 10:20 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 4, 6:50, 9:15 p.m.

“Captain America: Civil War” — It finally works its will on us, wearing us down with the weight of its self-importance as much as anything else. If you live and breathe Marvel, this is one of the MCU’s stronger offerings. (2:27) PG-13.

“The Man Who Knew Infinity” — If this reverent portrait starring ever-earnest Dev Patel and Jeremy Irons had been more concerned with the soul of a raw talent instead of the learn-and-earn ethos of so much accomplishment cinema, it might have produced something soulful rather than something institutional. (1:48) PG-13.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 3:30 p.m.

“The Meddler” — The nosy, needy, New Jersey transplant and title character is played with such instinctual warmth and comic verve by the estimable Susan Sarandon that it is the icing on a very well-baked cake, courtesy of writer-director Lorene Scafaria (“Seeking a Friend for the End of the World”).

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 1, 6:15, 8:45 p.m.; Fri. 3:50, 6:15 p.m.; Sat. 1, 6:15 p.m.; Sun. 12:15, 5:30 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 3:50, 6:15 p.m.

“Money Monster” — The names are big — George Clooney, Julia Roberts, director Jodie Foster — in this putative financial thriller, but the results are less entertaining and less significant than it imagines. (1:35) R.

“Neighbors 2: Sorority” — Title IX has finally hit the college party movie genre and the result is just as goofily funny and mind-bendingly stupid as its testosterone-driven predecessors. (1:32) R.

“The Nice Guys” — A cheerfully aimless plunge into the scuzzy noir soul of 1970s Los Angeles, with Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling playing mismatched private eyes. (1:56) R.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:15, 3:05, 6:25, 9:15 p.m.; Fri. 1, 4:20, 7, 9:40 p.m.; Sat.-Sun.: 1:15, 4:20, 7, 9:40 p.m.; Mon. 12:45, 3:25, 6:05, 8:50 p.m.; Tues. 12:45, 3:25, 7:10, 9:55 p.m.; Wed. 12:45, 3:25, 6:05, 8:50 p.m.

“X-Men: Apocalypse” — Disorganized but engaging, full of visual pyrotechnics and earnest emotion, the seventh 20th Century Fox film with “X-Men” in the title is diverting, if not necessarily convincing. (2:24) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:30, 4:20, 7:40 p.m.; Fri.-Sun.: 12, 3:20, 6:50, 9:30, 10:10 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 12:35, 3:50, 7:05, 9:35 p.m.
