It can’t be a coincidence that the film “How to Be Single,” starring four top comedic actresses, including Rebel Wilson, opens the same weekend as Valentine’s Day. If that touches a raw nerve or you’re looking for something different, there is much to keep you entertained at the cinema this month.
For example, “Pride and Prejudice and Zombies” may mark the first time that your boyfriend finally shows some interest in a Jane Austen novel. You might say he’d find it “very diverting.”
Here’s what you can expect to see at Regal Camana Bay in February. Please note that dates and films are subject to change.

As their bond grows, the unlikely couple must decide how far they’re willing to go to keep the hope of love alive.
