Welcome back to ‘At the movies in Kingston’. Good Boys was a surprise number one hit last week, will they continue to hold the title? There might be an angel in the wings hoping the boys will fall from their mountain top.  

Here is what’s new at the Kingston theatres for the week starting Friday, Aug. 23, 2019

Landmark Cinemas:

Angel Has Fallen brings back Gerard Butler to the screen as Secret Service agent Mike Banning. This time, framed for attempted murder on the President of the United States, Banning goes on the run to clear his name, and ultimately save the president.

Queen’s Corgi is an animated tale of Rex, a spoiled corgi who lives a life of luxury in Buckingham Palace. After being locked up in a London dog house, Rex learns to be better dog, thanks to his interactions with stray dogs who are not as wealthy as the Queen of England.

Movies in the Square

Movies in the Square brings Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets back to the big screen on Thursday, August 29, 2019

Weekend Pick: 

The summer has flown by, and as the lights start to dim on the holidays, there are still a few films left to see.

For those interested in non-stop action, Angel Has Fallen will quench that thirst. The weather is still beautiful, and you may wish to check out Movies in the Square for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets

With the recent announcement of the closing of Kingston Family Fun World, I strongly recommend you check out a movie at the drive in. This staple of Kingston summer cinema will cease business on the first of September. Pack a car and take in a movie under the stars on McAdoo’s Lane.

Enjoy the show Kingston, wherever it takes you this week.
