CRITICS’ CHOICE

“Café Society” – Woody Allen’s new film, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Kristen Stewart and Steve Carell, is of course funny, but it also ends up, almost without our realizing it, trafficking in memory, regret and the fate of relationships in a world of romantic melancholy. (1:36) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1:10, 4:30 p.m.

“Hunt for the Wilderpeople” – This wonderful New Zealand film has a gently absurdist quality, a simultaneously sweet and subversive sensibility all its own, mixing warmth, adventure and comedy in ways that consistently surprise. Don’t miss it. (1:41) PG-13.

Pickford Film Center: Thurs. 4:15, 6:45, 9:15 p.m.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Fri. 1:35, 4, 8:50 p.m.; Sat. 4, 6:30 p.m.; Sun. 4, 6:30, 8:50 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 4, 6:30 p.m.

“Jason Bourne” – The fourth film to feature Matt Damon as the unstoppable secret agent, the third to be directed by Paul Greengrass, this most propulsive motion picture is a model of what mainstream entertainment can be like when everything goes right. (2:03) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12, 12:40, 3, 3:40, 6, 6:40, 9, 9:40 p.m.; Fri.-Sat.: 12:30, 3:40, 6:30, 9:25 p.m.; Sun. 12:30, 3:40, 6:30, 9:50 p.m.; Mon.-Wed.: 12:30, 3:40, 6:30, 9:25 p.m.

“Kiki’s Delivery Service”

Pickford Film Center: Sat. 4 p.m.

“The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble” – It was a given that this Morgan Neville documentary would feature fine music, but it’s as concerned with emotion as it is with performance, investigating how so much joyous music was able to come out of exploration, disturbance, even pain. (1:36) NR.

PFC’s Limelight Cinema: Thurs. 1:40, 6:20, 8:40 p.m.

ALSO PLAYING

“Bad Moms” – An intermittently funny, occasionally raunchy movie that regards its central characters from an essential remove. (1:41) R.

“Ghostbusters” – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Leslie Jones and Kate McKinnon have chemistry to burn in a cheerful summer lark that in many ways improves on the 1984 original, but peters out well before its overblown Times Square climax. (1:56) PG-13.

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

“Ice Age: Collision Course” – Simply a perfunctory, watered-down entry in the animated series that feels like it should have been released on home video. (1:34) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:30, 2:45, 5:10 p.m.

“Lights Out” – The tale of a restless evil spirit who suffers from an extreme aversion to light, this nifty little chiller may be the first movie of its kind to unite the pleasure of a good haunting with the horror of an unpaid electricity bill. (1:21) PG-13.

“Nerve” – Although it loses its grip along the way, this neon-saturated teenage dream demonstrates the way in which technology has slid into our lives. (1:36) PG-13.

“The Secret Life of Pets” – A glorified hairball pulled together from the strands of better, more appealing movies and then noisily coughed up and disgorged at a multiplex near you. (1:30) PG.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:30, 1:50, 4:10, 6:30, 8:55 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 1, 3:20, 5:40, 8, 10:20 p.m.

“Star Trek Beyond” – The fact that this 13th film in the long-running series is serviceable, delivering enough value to be worth a fan’s time, is about as good as one could reasonably expect. (2:00) PG-13.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 1, 3:50, 6:50, 9:55 p.m.; Fri.-Wed.: 12:40, 3:30, 6:20, 9:20 p.m.

Barkley Village 16 3D: Thurs. 7:10 p.m.

“Suicide Squad” – A villains-as-heroes comic book movie that ends up in a kind of limbo, not as strong as its partisans will insist or as weak overall as its least appealing elements would have you fear. (2:10) PG-13.
