Who’s up for a Marvel movie?! By just stating that, have you guessed what’s playing this week?

NOW SHOWING Fri, Mar 16 – Thur, Mar 22 at 7 pm Mon, Mar 19 at 2 pm That’s right – opening Friday is Black Panther in RealD 3D. This film is rated PG-13 and runs 134 minutes.

Black Panther follows the story of T’Challa, the King of Wakanda after Captain America: Civil War (2016). Wakanda is a technologically advanced nation in Africa where T’Challa’s claim to the throne is threatened by an outsider who was a childhood victim of his father’s mistake. Imagine being the king of a nation AND you just so happen to be a super hero. That sounds like a lot to put on someone’s shoulders, don’t you think?

Now, you guys probably know by now that I like to give a little background info about the director and/or writers. It’s really interesting to see what work these men and women have done. It blows my mind the people who come up with these amazing stories and bring them to fruition. Black Panther is directed by Ryan Coogler, who also directed the films Creed (2015) and Fruitvale Station (2013). In fact, Ryan Coogler co-wrote the script with Joe Robert Cole who was a writer and producer for American Crime Story (2016).

Black Panther is a solid film, full of action, rich culture and story. Rotten Tomatoes gave it a whopping 97% – Certified Fresh! I don’t know about you but I’ve heard nothing but amazing things about this one and I’d say it’s a must see in March. The film is rated PG-13 for prolonged sequences of violence and a brief rude gesture. Also, a reminder about our 3D films. When we show our current movie in 3D, we show it in regular 2D format on Sunday and Tuesday. This gives absolutely everyone a chance to see the films we bring to the theatre as we are aware not all enjoy or are able to enjoy a 3D movie.

As always – we can’t wait to see you at the movies!
