The Jungle Book 

When: Thu., June 29, 8:30 p.m. 2017
Price: $5

As the highlight so far of Disney's live-action remakes of animated classics, 2016's The Jungle Book keeps the best parts of the 1967 Rudyard Kipling adaptation intact—the songs, the scenery, the talking animals—while improving upon, well, just about everything else. In his update, director Jon Favreau creates a vivid, colorful jungle with a real sense of presence and finds poignancy in the story of Mowgli (Neel Sethi), the boy raised by wolves. Some elements, such as the tiger Shere Khan (Idris Elba), are a wee bit scary for the little ones, but kids today are tough. Enjoy a good sing-along to "The Bare Necessities," but pray Disney doesn't get around to remaking the terrifying The Black Cauldron. Well, maybe they should; the original book's pretty good. —Zack Smith
