The 2016 summer movie season has officially come to a close and it is time to look back on all the blockbuster movies and indie hits that played in our local theaters. Marvel once again kicked things off with Captain America: Civil War featuring an all-star cast of actors portraying Marvel superheroes and DC Comics helped wrap things up with their own ensemble movie, The Suicide Squad.

There were plenty of other non-superhero movies that became fan favorites over the summer. Me Before You starring Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin, Central Intelligence starring Kevin Hart and Dwayne Johnson, and The Nice Guys starring Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe all thrilled audiences.

Of course, there were plenty of sequels to go around from The Conjuring 2, X-Men: Apocalypse, Now You See Me 2, The Neighbors 2, Finding Dory, Independence Day: Resurgence, Star Trek Beyond, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows among many others.
