NOW PLAYING ALADDIN

A bland, stiffly staged live-action retelling of the animated Disney classic about a petty thief who woos a princess with the help of a wisecracking genie. A whole new world this is not. (MJ) Rated PG

THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM

Documentarian John Chester films himself and his wife Molly as they trade in their urban L.A. life for a full-service, 200-acre farm. At the Magic Lantern. (NW) Rated PG

ECHO IN THE CANYON

Part documentary and part concert film, this is an entertaining tribute to the innovations and continuing influence of the L.A. rock scene of the mid’60s. At the Magic Lantern. (NW) Rated PG-13

THE FAREWELL

A Chinese family follows tradition and hides their matriarch’s terminal cancer diagnosis from her, arranging a fake wedding banquet to say their goodbyes. Lulu Wang’s autobiographical film beautifully walks the line between humor and melancholy. (NW) Rated PG

Morihiko Nakahara, Conductor

FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW

Former foes Jason Statham and Dwayne Johnson go the mismatched buddy-comedy route, begrudgingly teaming up to fight super-soldier Idris Elba. A mostly forgettable Fast & Furious franchise spinoff. (NW) Rated PG-13

AUGUST 14

7PM

Arbor Crest Wine Cellars

Music of Piazzolla and four contemporary composers, featuring Mateusz Wolski, Violin. Cool and classical… enjoy breathtaking views and the stellar sounds of the Spokane Symphony at sunset. Lawn and table seating available.

JOHN WICK: CHAPTER 3 — PARABELLUM

Keanu Reeves’ stoic assassin is back for more ultraviolence, and this time he has a bounty on his head. Frustratingly frontloaded and too long, but it works as a showcase for lithe action choreography. (NW) Rated R

THE LION KING

Sure, it’s nowhere near as good as the original, but this CGI remake of Disney’s 1994 classic is nonetheless an entertaining, visually sumptuous jungle adventure. The stories and songs remain foolproof — hakuna matata, indeed. (SS) Rated PG

MARIANNE & LEONARD: WORDS OF LOVE

A documentary chronicle of the complicated romance between Leonard Cohen and Marianne Ihlen, which inspired some of the musician’s most famous songs. At the Magic Lantern. (NW) Rated R

ONCE UPON A TIME… IN HOLLYWOOD

Quentin Tarantino’s ode to 1969 L.A. finds a washed-up TV star, his longtime stunt double and Sharon Tate crossing paths in unexpected ways. Rambling, elegiac, uneven and occasionally brilliant. (NW) Rated R

PAVAROTTI

Director Ron Howard’s latest music documentary focuses on legendary tenor Luciano Pavarotti, who helped bring opera to the mainstream. At the Magic Lantern. (NW) Rated PG-13

SPIDER-MAN: FAR FROM HOME

Even on a trip to Europe, Peter Parker can’t dodge his superhero duties, donning his Spidey suit to fight off evil humanoids known as Elementals. A sharp and funny continuation of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. (SS) Rated PG-13

TOY STORY 4

Pixar’s most beloved franchise returns to assault your tear ducts. Having been given to a new owner, Woody and Buzz Lightyear have some familiar fun-filled adventures while also ruminating about the existential angst of being a toy. (MJ) Rated G

WILD ROSE

A charming ode to country music, with a breakthrough performance by Jessie Buckley as a Glasgow woman trying to piece her life together and become a honky-tonk star. At the Magic Lantern. (NW) Rated R

YESTERDAY

A promising concept — a struggling musician discovers he’s the only person on Earth who remembers the Beatles, and cashes in — can’t overcome sluggish execution. Don’t overthink this one. (MJ) Rated PG-13 n
