DOCUMENTARY: TURNING POINT

Turning Point, an insider’s look at the first medication that could treat Alzheimer’s disease, comes to Tampa Theatre with a screening and panel discussion with local experts.

ALL NIGHT LONG: LIONEL RICHIE AT GLASTONBURY

CRITICS’ PICKS

Dolemite Is My Name: Eddie Murphy is back, and both his old gifts and some new ones are on engaging display in the rowdy, raunchy, inescapably funny film, a gleefully profane biopic and a passion project the star has been nurturing for years.

Judy: Entertainer Judy Garland (Renée Zellweger) arrives in London in 1969 to play a series of shows while her life spirals downward. Not always effective, but at its best when Zellweger hits the stage.

Downton Abbey: In this big-screen adaptation of the TV series, excitement runs high when the Crawley family and the Downton Abbey staff learn that the king and queen will be stopping by for a visit. Screenwriter Julian Fellowes, the creative soul of the show, has delivered a knottily plotted story as tasty (and probably as nourishing) as a Pimm’s Cup.
