★★★ “Night at the Museum 3: Secret of the Tomb” (PG): The gang from the original “Night at the Museum” is back for one last hurrah. For this installment, director Shawn Levy packs them up and sends them to the British Museum in London, where Larry (Ben Stiller) must try to fix the ancient Egyptian magic tablet that brings exhibits and statues to life. Stiller may be the “Museum” star, says movie reviewer Soren Andersen, but the late Robin Williams’ Teddy Roosevelt is the funny heart and compassionate soul of the series. “Fortunately for Williams, and us, ‘Secret of the Tomb’ sends him out on a high note.”
★★½ “Liberator” (R, in English and Spanish, with subtitles): Édgar Ramírez stars as Simon Bolivar — soldier, visionary, lover (of many, many women), political theoretician and inspirational figure who liberated much of South America from Spanish rule during the 19th century.
★★ “Listen Up Philip” (not rated): A frustrated, self-absorbed novelist (Jason Schwartzman) roams the 1980s literary scene.
