    “The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare” - (R; 2 hours) - Based upon recently declassified files of the British War Department and inspired by true events, this action-comedy that tells the story of the first-ever special forces organization formed during WWII by UK Prime Minister Winston Churchill and a small group of military officials including author Ian Fleming. The top-secret combat unit, composed of a motley crew of rogues and mavericks, goes on a daring mission against the Nazis using entirely unconventional and utterly “ungentlemanly” fighting techniques. Ultimately their audacious approach changed the course of the war and laid the foundation for the British SAS (Special Air Service) and modern Black Ops warfare. Directed by Guy Ritchie and co-written for the screen by Jerry Bruckheimer. Final screenings: Wednesday, May 15, 2 p.m. (OCAP) and Thursday, May 16 at 7 p.m.

    "This is a Guy Ritchie action-comedy through and through, which means it's going to be a stylish, cartoonishly violent, slick and relatively mindless popcorn movie. We'll take it." - Richard Roeper, Chicago Sun Times

    “Challengers” - (R; 2 hours, 12 minutes) -  Tennis player turned coach Tashi has transformed her husband, Art into a world-famous Grand Slam champion. To snap him out of his recent losing streak, she enters him into a “Challenger” event, where he faces his former best friend - and Tashi’s ex-boyfriend. Directed by Luca Guadagnino, “Challengers” stars Zendaya as Tashi Duncan, a former tennis prodigy turned coach. Married to Art, who is struggling with his game, Tashi’s plan for his redemption takes an unexpected turn when he squares off against his former friend Patrick, portrayed by Josh O’Connor. As their pasts collide and tensions rise, Tashi must weigh the cost of victory. Opening Friday, May 17, 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 18, 7 p.m.; Sunday, May 19, 2 p.m.; Wednesday, May 22, 2 p.m. (OCAP), Thursday, May 24, 7 p.m.

    “It’s far more thrilling, and triumphant, than a simple tale of someone lifting a trophy, or love conquering all.” – David Sims, The Atlantic
