Okay, we’re cheating a bit here because technically we’re still in March, but as it’s the Easter Weekend coming up, we figured you’d want a refresher on what you can catch at the cinema.
The Daniel Day Lewis film “Phantom Thread” is finally getting here, months after its original release date. We’ve also been promising the “Pacific Rim” sequel for a few weeks now but it seems it will definitely be opening at the Camana Bay Cinema this weekend.
There is some comedy and a thriller or two this month, along with religious fare in “Paul, Apostle of Christ” and even a touch of fantasy with “A Wrinkle in Time” starring no less than Oprah Winfrey. One of the most highly anticipated films of the year, “Ready, Player One,” opens in Cayman on April 6.
