February brings Valentine’s Day and Valentine’s Day brings thoughts — and films — of romance.
Camana Bay Cinema will screen several movies that feature romance during the month, starting with the acclaimed rom-com “When Harry Met Sally” as part of the Classics at the Cinema on Feb. 6.
On Feb. 8, “Fifty Shades Freed,” the new and final film in the “Fifty Shades” trilogy, turns up the heat with the release of this R-rated erotic romance drama.
Classics at the Cinema will tug at the heartstrings again, with the epic American historical romance film, “Gone with the Wind.” Set during the American Civil War and subsequent Reconstruction period, the movie appears on many of the lists of the best films of all time.
The Classics at the Cinema features give audiences a chance to see, often for the first time, some iconic movies on the big screen. Tickets cost $20 and the films are shown in the VIP auditorium with recliner seats. Reserved seating is available and a small popcorn is included in the price.
Culture at the Cinema, which airs recordings of live performances of dance and theatre from some of the world’s most famous venues, will feature Bolshoi Ballet’s interpretation of Romeo and Juliet, the famous William Shakespeare tragedy about two star-crossed lovers, on Feb. 17.
SUPERHEROES AND SCI-FI
It’s not all love and romance at Camana Bay Cinema in February. On Feb. 2, the third and final instalment of the “Maze Runner” film series begins its run. Featuring acclaimed young actor Dylan O’Brien (“Deepwater Horizon” and ”American Assassin”), “Maze Runner: The Death Cure” follows its hero in a race against time to find a cure for a deadly disease in this dystopian science-fiction action thriller film.
First introduced to the Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2016’s “Captain America: Civil War,” the Marvel Comics superhero, Black Panther, or “T’Challa,” gets a chance to take the lead in a feature film by the same name. “Black Panther” begins its run on Feb. 16, and stars Chadwick Boseman as a superhero with enhanced speed, agility, strength and durability, which he gains from ingesting a heart-shaped herb.
