“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.

ALSO PLAYING

“Anthropoid” – In this enlightening but seldom riveting drama about a plan to assassinate the Third Reich’s No. 3 man, director Sean Ellis poses compelling questions, and breaks through the historical aspic – too late, yet unforgettably, in its final, shattering scenes. (2:00) R.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 11:50, 3:20 p.m.

“Florence Foster Jenkins” – Perhaps not every quirky true story needs a biopic starring Meryl Streep, as evidenced by director Stephen Frears’ bizarre take on the story of a wealthy older woman who launched an amateur singing career in the 1940s despite her distinct lack of talent. (1:50) PG-13.

“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.

“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.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 2:10, 5:20 p.m.

“Sausage Party” – For something steeped in the juvenile directness of puns and body humor, there is an enigmatic heart to this new R-rated animated film from the sweetly filthy minds of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Does it want to be a dirty movie or theological treatise? (1:29) R.

“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.

“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.

Barkley Village 16: Thurs. 12:30, 3:30, 6:30, 9:35 p.m.; Sat. 12:30, 3:30, 6:30, 9:30 p.m.
