This past weekend the made for Cinemas action film “Greenland” starring Gerard Butler opened in Antigua as part of its world premiere inauguration simultaneously with theatres in 11 International markets. Why this is surprising for Antiguans moviegoers on the island? Is because new Hollywood releases have always played in local cinemas either after or simultaneously with their North American premiere showings. In the process all that glorious, glitzy, glamorous entertainment news from up North filtered down to our local news media, social media and television media outlets.
Now under Covid we find movies like “Greenland” opening one month before North American Cinemas and perhaps local moviegoers do not know how to differentiate this film than some of the re-release films also playing in the Cinemas. “The Rental”, a horror film starred by Alison Brie and Dan Stevens also opened this past weekend in France and Belgium, both at #7. It has also opened in the Netherlands, across Scandinavia, and in the UAE and Saudi Arabia.
Caribbean Cinemas also confirmed the re-release of Christopher Nolan’s “Inception” on August 27th in celebration of its 10-year anniversary. This special anniversary theatrical event will give audiences a never-before-seen look at footage of Nolan’s highly anticipated film “Tenet,” which will debut on September 10th and is certain to be one of the most successful films of 2020.
Health and safety protocols will continue to be observed for all employees and patrons during their visit to the cinema. Their new operational hours are Thursdays and Fridays from 7:00pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 4:30pm. For a limited time only, all movies on Thursdays have a cost of $11.00 XCD as part of Caribbean Cinemas’ “Customer Appreciation Day”.
