At the movies in Kingston: July 11 edition
Welcome back to ‘At the movies in Kingston.’ Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man fights off an alligator disaster film and buddy comedy for box office domination this weekend.
Here is what’s new at the Kingston theatres for the week starting Friday, Jul. 12, 2019.
Crawl is the typical disaster film that gets released in the summer time. The protagonist of the film must survive a category 5 hurricane while saving her father. Plus they have to avoid being eaten by alligators. This film is looking to take a bite out of the box office.
Stuber pairs Dave Bautista and Kumail Nanjiani in a mismatched buddy comedy. Bautista plays a cop who brings his Uber driver along as he chases crooks. Nanjiani’s character will no doubt have the ride of his life on this adventure.

I would like to extend my thanks to the staff at Cineplex this past week. After taking the kids to see Spider-Man: Far From Home, I left a USB on the counter, and forgot about it. On this USB were family photos from a recent trip that I hoped to get developed. I had no idea where it was, and thanks to the excellent staff at Cineplex, they located me through social media and kept the USB until I claimed it the next day. I can’t thank you enough for going above and beyond.
Wherever the box office takes you this weekend, enjoy the show.
