The Play Room. (Wednesday only; no Roeper rating) In 1975, a group of kids playing in the attic create a make-believe world, while downstairs their parents do the same. Not rated.

Oblivion. HHH Tom Cruise plays a future military guy assigned to an outpost on some planet and then he finds out a secret or something. Rated PG-13.

Scary Movie V. (No Roeper rating) Making fun of bad movies is a can’t-miss formula, as evidenced by the fact that there are now five of these things. Rated R.

Evil Dead. H The tag line says it all: “The most terrifying film you will ever experience.” Rated R.

Jurassic Park. (In digital 3-D with surcharge.) Spielberg’s 1993 neo-classic about a prehistoric zoo gone berserk is probably one of the better recent choices for a 3-D re-release. Rated PG-13.

G.I. Joe: Retaliation. H½ (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) Wow. This one’s got Bruce Willis and The Rock in it. Guess everyone else in Hollywood took the winter off? Rated PG-13.

The Croods. (No Roeper rating; in standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) An animated thing in which a family of prehistoric people go on an adventure. Fortunately for us, they were among the few English-speaking Cro-Magnons. Rated PG.

Oz the Great and Powerful. HH½ (In standard format and digital 3-D with surcharge.) In a backstory of the classic tale, the three witches are among the first to suspect that the “wizard” (James Franco) might not be all he claims to be. Rated PG.
