IS THIS THE REAL LIFE: Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along

Tampa Theatre is not only screening the story of world-famous rock band Queen, it's a Bohemian Rhapsody Sing-Along. Fresh off winning four Oscars, including Best Actor Rami Malek, the film chronicles the band's journey from their humble beginnings to their now-legendary 1985 performance at the Live Aid concert in Wembley Stadium. Bohemian Rhapsody is a foot-stomping celebration of their music and their extraordinary lead singer Freddie Mercury. All of the seminal songs of Queen will be shown with lyrics — and the audience is encouraged to belt them out right along with the movie Saturday at 7:30 p.m. Tampa Theatre, 711 N Franklin St., Tampa. $13; $10 members. (813) 274-8286.

CRITICS' PICKS

The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part: Lego invaders from outer space wreak havoc in this animated sequel. While not as fun as the original, the animation is top-notch.

The Kid Who Would Be King: A 12-year-old boy gets pulled into a grand Arthurian adventure in this endearing, winningly offbeat comic fantasy.

Roma (Netflix): An extremely quiet, even meditative picture played at the softer pitch of reality, rather than the higher frequency of drama by writer-director-producer Alfonso Cuarón. It won three Oscars, including best director for Cuarón, at this year's Academy Awards.
