1. What’s On at the cinema this weekend?

Last week Christopher Nolan time-bending suspense flick, Tenet landed in the UAE and proved a popular pull at the box-office.  You can still catch it Vox screens in Abu Dhabi Mall, Al Jimi Mall, Nation Towers, The Galleria Al Maryah Island and Yas Mall. You’ll also be able to catch tense Soviet espionage biography, Mr Jones;  zombie thriller Peninsula; mystery and cartoon capers in the form of Scooby-Doo origin story — Scoob!; action thrills with cop drama Live; and a selection of other modern classics.
