Each Wednesday, I will be publishing a list of movies which are promoted to be in theatres on the upcoming weekend (Friday). I will only be indicating which movies are being released, but you’ll need to check local listings for movie times and locations. Personally, I feel like it’s a pretty weak week for movie releases, but that’s probably ok with everything else that’s going on in Ottawa. You can ignore movies and get out and enjoy the weather!!
