Terminator blazes to 13 shows daily

The legendary, Terminator in which Sarah Connor and a hybrid cyborg human must protect a young girl from a newly modified liquid Terminator from the future came to Palace Amusements’ four cinema houses on Friday with guns blazing.
Opening on Friday in all the four cinemas with two showings per day for a total of eight, the popular movie has since jumped to thirteen per day on Saturday with the recently opened Sunshine Palace having four per day. Schedules for Wednesday were not available but the odds favour the popular actioned packed movie continuing to dominate the screens well beyond this week. Based on recent popular movies, the hike in showings suggest that Terminator will last for about 6 weeks, taking it well into December when the popular Star Wars series come to town, with The Rise of Skywalker in mid-December.
This is only the second time since the Will Smith starring Gemini Man debuted on October 9 that a movie opened with 8 shows daily. Only Fast and Furious that started showing in July had more than 13 showings per day with opening with 15 and then moving to 17 in August. Gemini Man now in its fourth week is down to five shows per day and is one of the movies that have made space for this week’s leading movie. Also making way is Maleficent Mistress of Evil with Angelina Jolie that is now down to just three regular showings from six on Wednesday and the long-running Jokers that is down from two per day to just one starting Friday. Maleficent Mistress of Evil also has two early shows in the 2-2:30 pm time slot.

Gemini Man still holding the audience for 4 weeks

New at the movies last week were Black and Blue starring Naomie Harris and Tyrese Gibson, opening with seven daily shows in all cinemas and continues with 6 on Wednesday but fell to five showings from Friday to Tuesday this week.
Continuing with four daily shows in all cinemas are Downton Abbey the continuing story of the Crawley family, wealthy owners of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century, on Saturday the movie is now down to three showings in regular slot but on Sunday there was a special early show at Cineplex.  Mary, the tale of a family looking to start a charter-boat business, buying a ship that holds terrifying secrets once out on isolated waters opened on Wednesday with four shows but that gave way to the increased demand for Terminator on Saturday.
On Wednesday Harriet enters the Jamaican cinemas as the sole newcomer. Based on the story of iconic freedom fighter Harriet Tubman, ‘Harriet’ follows Tubman (Cynthia Erivo) on her escape from slavery and subsequent missions to free dozens of slaves through the Underground Railroad in the face of growing pre-Civil War adversity.
