Catch the Latest Hits at the Theatre

Unwind after all the excitement of this week’s events by heading to your local theatre to view one of the latest hits. The following is a list of movies that are currently playing:

Coco

“Aspiring musician Miguel teams up with charming trickster Hector on an extraordinary journey through the Land of the Dead.” This movie is critically acclaimed and beloved in its celebration of diversity. What better movie to watch in Toronto, the most diverse city in the world?

Wonder

“Based on the New York Times bestseller, WONDER tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade.” This is one movie that truly does the book justice, and it is one that I highly recommend.

Justice League

“Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.”

Murder on the Orient Express

“What starts out as a lavish train ride through Europe quickly unfolds into one of the most stylish, suspenseful and thrilling mysteries ever told. From the novel by best-selling author Agatha Christie, ‘Murder on the Orient Express’ tells the tale of thirteen strangers stranded on a train, where everyone’s a suspect. One man must race against time to solve the puzzle before the murderer strikes again.”

Thor: Ragnarok

“Thor is imprisoned on the other side of the universe without his mighty hammer and finds himself in a race against time to get back to Asgard to stop Ragnarok – the destruction of his homeworld and the end of Asgardian civilization – at the hands of an all-powerful new threat, the ruthless Hela.”
