An exciting combination of new releases, classic comedies and kids’ films, and a 20th century masterpiece drama will all appear on the big screens of the Camana Bay Cinema in March.
Some of the highly anticipated new releases include “Red Sparrow,” which reunites actress Jennifer Lawrence with Hunger Games film series director Francis Lawrence in a spy thriller about a young Russian intelligence officer who is assigned to seduce a CIA agent to learn his secrets; a remake of the 1974 Charles Bronson film “Death Wish” about a vigilante out for revenge, this time starring Bruce Willis; a stylish Western called “Hostiles” about a U.S. Army captain, played by Christian Bale, who reluctantly agrees to escort a dying Cheyenne war chief (played by two-time CayFilm film festival attendee Wes Studi) back to his tribal lands; a sequel to 2013’s summer sci-fi surprise with “Pacific Rim: Uprising”; and “Phantom Thread,” the acting swan song for three-time (and counting) Academy Award-winning Best Actor Daniel Day-Lewis.
CLASSICS AND KIDS CLUB
The Tuesday night “Classics at the Cinema” offerings feature two of the most beloved comedies of the 1980s: the often quoted 1980 film, “Airplane!” on March 13, and the 1987 Mel Brooks “Star Wars” parody, “Spaceballs” on March 20.
Then on March 27, the Camana Bay Cinema will screen “Alien,” the classic sci-fi horror film that generated numerous sequels and spin-offs and the tagline, “In space, no one can hear you scream.”
All Classics at the Cinema films, which cost CI$20 per person and include a small popcorn, start at 7 p.m. and are shown in the VIP auditorium, which is outfitted with luxury reclining seats and Dolby Atmos sound.
The Saturday morning Kids Club features in March include the animated film ”A Bug’s Life” on March 10; the part animated and part live action film, “Enchanted” on March 17; the genius of Robin Williams in the classic animated film “Aladdin” on March 24; and finally “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe” on March 31.
Kids Club films start at 10 a.m. and cost CI$5 for adults and children.
CULTURE AT THE CINEMA
On March 17, the monthly Culture at the Cinema offering will show “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” written by one of the United States’ most famous playwrights, Tennessee Williams.
Captured live on stage in London’s West End as part of the National Theatre Live programme, the drama tells the tale of a Southern United States family that gathers together on a hot night to celebrate its patriarch’s birthday. The family drama that ensues helped put the word “mendacity” in the widespread American lexicon.
Culture at the Cinema features are shown in the VIP auditorium starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are CI$40 per person and include a glass of sparkling wine. A full bar is open for the patrons of these showings and as a result, only those 18 years of age or older can attend.
