A list of the top films in cinemas this weekend includes the Coen Brothers’ The Butler, which is playing in 3D at the Odeon cinema in London; the David Lynch-directed documentary The Blue Lagoon, which will open in select cinemas across the UK on Friday; and the thriller The Moth, starring Matt Damon.
But this weekend the big news is that a number of classic movies have finally opened in theatres, including the cult classic The Wizard of Oz, a film that became a cult classic because of its near-perfect pacing and incredible acting, and the underrated classic The Lion King.
The latter will open at a theater in Birmingham, Alabama, on Friday.
