Weekend Pick

Gemini Man and The Adams Family are strong competition for Joker. The clown prince of crime’s feature was the top of the box office last weekend, but can Joker withstand two Will Smith’s and the kookiest family of all?

Whatever you choose to do this weekend, enjoy the show, and remember to be kind to others at the movie theatre.
