The Greatest Showman
Get ready to obsess over the soundtrack that has captured everybody’s hearts. Inspired by the imagination of P.T. Barnum, the original musical celebrates diversity and individuality to leave you feeling empowered.
The Shape of Water
With seven Golden Globe nominations, The Shape of Water follows the story of a mute cleaning lady at a high-security government laboratory in 1962 Baltimore. She discovers the lab’s classified secret — a mysterious, scaled creature from South America — and develops a unique bond with the creature.
Based on the true rise-and-fall story of Tonya Harding, the film centralizes on the 1994 assault on skating rival Nancy Kerrigan. Watch Margot Robbie transform into a role that’ll make you fall in love with her even more (if that was even possible).
Miguel’s internal battle between choosing his passion for music or family is put to the test when he accidentally enters the Land of the Dead. He embarks on an extraordinary journey to unlock the real story behind his family’s history — and let’s just say the ending will leave you in a sea of used tissues.
You’ll feel a rollercoaster of emotions as you watch this coming-of-age story of a high school senior and her relationship with her mother.

Steven Spielberg directed this star-studded film featuring Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

Call Me by Your Name
This romantic coming-of-age drama is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman. When 17-year-old Elio Perlman visits his family’s 17th-century villa in Lombardy, Italy, he meets Oliver, a handsome doctoral student and develops a relationship he never expected.
Battle of the Sexes
Relive the most-watched sports event of all time. Directors Jonathon Dayton and Valerie Faris perfectly capture the 1973 tennis match between Billie Jean King and Bobby Riggs (played by Emma Stone and Steve Carell).
