    The big movie news this week was the release of tickets for Avengers Endgame(April 26). With most websites down on Tuesday, I made a quick trip to the theater to buy our opening weekend tickets. If you plan to see it opening weekend, I suggest purchasing tickets soon.

    New this weekend is Shazam! – another Superhero movie.  Continuing from last weekend is Dumbo.

    Captain Marvel continues in theaters. Be sure to check out our review and parental guidance suggestions.

    Other upcoming releases are:

    • April 12: Missing Link
    • April 26: Avengers: Endgame

    Depending on the age of your kids, there may be a few other movies of interest. Apollo 11 looks like a good documentary about the mission that landed on the moon. The Detroit Five is an option for hockey fans. I know several people (mostly with teen girls) who have seen Five Feet Apart.
