The Screening Room:
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood starts its run at The Screening Room this weekend. Quentin Tarantino’s film about a fading actor and his best friend stunt double interconnects with Charles Manson and Sharon Tate and how Hollywood changed after 1969.

Honeyland is the story of the last female bee hunter in Europe and how she tries to save the dwindling bee population in Macedonia.

With the summer movie season ending on a high note for box office sales, one would expect the theatres to have awards bait movies ready for September. Instead we are starting this month off with a fright as It: Chapter Two breaks open the theatre doors with thrills and chills that will appeal to a large audience.
I would expect this to be the number one movie this weekend by a large margin. Wherever you go and whatever you see, enjoy the week Kingston.
