Classic Cinemas' Mark Mazrimas sent along a list of films upcoming at the Lake Theatre through mid-summer. Nothing is ever set in stone in this business, but this is the likely lineup:

This Friday: Alien Covenant, Everything Everything, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul open this Friday. No, Alien Covenant is not a film about illegal aliens (well, then again, maybe it is). Everything Everything is a love story about a young couple separated by a hermetically sealed environment, due to illness. So a horror film, a romance and a kids' flick, something for practically everyone.

5/26 - Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales and Baywatch (Really, can we ever get enough of Johnny Depp as a perpetually inebriated pirate?)

6/2 - Wonder Woman and Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (We expect Captain Underpants to join the Avengers series anytime now)

6/9 - Meagan Leavey ("A true story from Bleecker Street that I hope we can open," Mazrimas says. It's about a Marine corporal and the K9 unit she bonds with) and The Mummy (A horror film, not another Brendan Fraser flick)

6/16 - Cars 3 and All Eyez on Me ("The true and untold story of prolific rapper, actor, poet and activist Tupac Shakur," according to the internet) and Rough Night ("Five best friends — Scarlett Johansson, Kate McKinnon, Jillian Bell, Ilana Glazer, Zoë Kravitz — from college reunite 10 years later for a wild bachelorette weekend in Miami.")

6/23 - Transformers: The Last Night

6/28 - Baby Driver (Thankfully, not a sequel to Boss Baby although that's only a matter of time. This is about a "talented getaway driver" nicknamed "Baby")

6/30 - Despicable Me 3 and The House (Will Ferrell and Amy Poehler go to great comic lengths to pay for their daughter's college education)

7/7 - Spiderman Homecoming 

7/14 - War for the Planet of the Apes

7/21 – Dunkirk (Directed by Christopher Nolan, big budget, big special effects)
