Silver Screen Weekly - What's Coming Up At The Cinema From Friday 8th March

Our film critic and media correspondent has been looking and trawling the new releases. Here's what you can see on the big screen this week.

From Friday 8th March

Imaginary (15)
This new horror from Blumhouse sees all far from well with Chauncey, a young girl’s imaginary friend, who resides within her teddy bear. Although things are far from “imaginary” with this bear, and for that matter this entity is no friend either! Starring Jurassic World Dominion’s DeWanda Wise, this horror film aims to make you think twice about hugging your teddy bear at night, in this frightening story about the dangers of our imaginary friends made in childhood and where they go! Could be an early horror treat for 2024.
