Welcome back to ‘At the Movies in Kingston.’ This week, some favourite Miami cops are back on the beat and hope to prove they can still rule the box office. Here is what’s new at the Kingston theatres for the week starting Friday, Jan. 17, 2020.

Landmark Cinemas

Bad Boys For Life brings Will Smith and Martin Lawrence back as Miami detectives Mike Lowry and Marcus Burnett. Burnett has retired from their action-packed partnership, but comes back to duty to help Lowry take down some ruthless bad guys. Expect lots of action and witty banter between the two stars.

Doolittle is Robert Downey Jr’s take on the classic tale of the doctor who can talk to animals. The film has multiple celebrity voices for the animals, including Tom Holland, John Cena, and Selena Gomez.

The Screening Room

Sunday’s Cinematica Classic “Classic Art House with Janus Films” series offers Buena Vista Social Club. In this 1999 Wim Wenders film, Wenders leads a small film crew to Havana, Cuba with his friend Ry Cooder. Together they immerse themselves in Cuban music and bring aging Cuban talent public attention, after largely being forgotten in the wake of Castro’s revolution.

Weekend Pick

With a multitude of films available to see, the Screening Room is the best place to catch up on some of the recently announced Best Picture nominees for the Oscars this year. If you are like me and have been waiting for Bad Boys For Life for the past decade, I will see you in the theatre this weekend.

Wherever you go and whatever you see, have fun at the movies.
