Superhero fans can take to the movies the following week (February 24th to 26th) for ‘The Dark Knight’, the second part of The Dark Knight Trilogy staring Christian Bale as Batman/Bruce Wayne and the late Heath Ledger, who was posthumously awarded an Oscar for his performance in the film.

‘Thelma & Louise’ returns appropriately so during Oscars Weekend, March 3rd to 5th.  The 1991 American road film received six Academy Award nominations and is now regarded as a landmark feminist film and true classic that remains hugely influential in film circles.

On Saturday, March 10th, epic adventure and fantasy film, ‘The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring’ returns to Omniplex for its three-day run.  Based on the first volume of JRR Tolkien’s masterpiece series set in Middle Earth, the film is regarded as one of the greatest fantasy films ever made.

For St. Patrick’s Weekend, March 17th to 19th, screens will turn blue over green for James Cameron’s Avatar, the 2009 epic science fiction film. The highest grossing film of all time, it was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and now has four sequels in planning with two already in the making.

This #BringItBack series concludes with sweet family favourite in time for Easter, Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory, the musical fantasy starring Gene Wilder as Willy Wonka and based on Roald Dahl’s famous tale.
