This week we are checking out two new movies coming out in theaters.

In The Heights

In The Heights is a musical from the creator of 'Hamilton' and 'Crazy Rich Asians'.  It's the story of a guy from Washington Heights, New York who has been scraping by, saving up money, and looking to start a new life.  If you like musicals, this is right up your alley!

Critics are loving In The Heights with Rotten Tomatoes scoring it a 97% certified fresh, and metacritic coming in at an 85/100. You can see In The Heights in theaters now.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway

After being delayed for over a year, Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway is in theaters this weekend.  The sequel follows Peter Rabbit after he became famous from a book written about him.  He doesn't like being the center of attention though, especially when that attention is because he is perceived as being naughty.

Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway is getting OK reviews. Rotten Tomatoes scores it a 71% but metacritic isn’t as generous with a 43/100. You can see Peter Rabbit 2: The Runaway in theaters now.
