Cinema's release calendar is on a roll and, as we gradually return to our local screens, there is a variety of titles available for every age group and a range of genres for every taste. The highly anticipated horror A Quiet Place Part II is released this week, alongside uplifting British drama Dream Horse and the animated adventure Felix and the Hidden Treasure

Safety is of course at the forefront of everyone's mind right now so make sure to check out the specific guidelines for your local cinema before visiting. Meanwhile, many cinemas have used lockdown as an opportunity to improve and renovate their venues so that we can all enjoy the best possible cinema experience.

New in cinemas

A Quiet Place Part II

On its release A Quiet Place was praised for its highly imaginative and suspenseful use of sound as well as its representation of American Sign Language. Picking up from where the last film ended, A Quiet Place Part II sees the Abbott family venturing out to find other survivors of the terrifying aliens that have taken over the Earth, with mother Evelyn now solely responsible for keeping her daughter Regan, son Marcus and the newborn baby safe as they seek permanent refuge. This expansion to the franchise is packed with thrills and digs deeper into its dystopian future. 

Also released in cinemas this week

Dream Horse; Felix and the Hidden Treasure

Dream Horse is based on the fascinating true story of a community coming together in South Wales to buy, breed and train a racehorse despite not having any previous experience in the largely middle-class sport, while Felix and the Hidden Treasure is an animated adventure from Canada which follows a young boy's quest to find his father, who disappeared at sea two years prior.
