Welcome back to ‘At the movies in Kingston.’ Sonic the Hedgehog and The Call of the Wild went head to head at the box office last week, with the blue speed demon coming out on top by a few dollars more. This week, an invisible man stocks the box office for supremacy. Here is everything new at Kingston theatres for the week starting Friday, Feb. 28, 2020.
The Invisible Man is a remake of the classic monster story. This time, Elisabeth Moss plays Cecilia, a woman who has inherited a fortune from her abusive ex who is believed to be dead. Too many accidents take place in Cecilia’s life, making her think that her boyfriend didn’t die, but might be lurking in the shadows.
Impractical Jokers: The Movie is a lighthearted comedy about a long-ago high school problem that forces the Impractical Jokers to hit the road for a hope at redemption.

People are looking for a good scare, and The Invisible Man is getting great reviews and will compete for top spot with Sonic the Hedgehog. Personally, I enjoyed The Call of the Wild and I would recommend seeing this wonderful love letter to nature on the big screen.
