Tom Cruise has proven again to be a box office draw with the fourth installment of the “Mission: Impossible” series. All the screenings downtown are in the evening, beginning at 5:30 p.m.

With the IMAX action sequences, the audience can feel like they are scaling the tall buildings along with Cruise. If that’s your choice.

The film is also showing at the IMAX theater at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, a part of the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum. In the first two weeks at that location, 10,000 people have watched the action movie, reports Smithsonian Enterprises.

At both theaters, the show will include a six-minute snapshot of “The Dark Knight Rises,” the conclusion so-far of the Batman trilogy, due in theaters next summer.

The movie is expected to play at Natural History through at least Feb. 23.
