There is just one special screening of note this week—the Atlantic Film Festival Summer of SuperHeroes outdoor screening series continues at the Halifax waterfront (Tall Ships Quay) with X-Men: First Class. Screening is at 9:05pm, preceded by the Siddhartha Fraser-directed short film Kona (2005).
At Cineplex screens, the Winehouse doc Amy continues at the Oxford, and the Scotiabank Theatre Halifax in Bayers Lake has the well-regarded Brit-com What We Did On Our Holiday, with Rosamund Pike, David Tennant, and Billy Connolly.
