On tap are romances, comedies, horror films, spy thrillers and toy stories, some of which might one day become classics - and then you can say you were there when they first opened.
Well-timed to open soon after Craig Venter's announcement of a self-replicating cell, here's a halfway serious science fiction movie about two researchers who slip some human DNA into a cloning experiment, and end up with an unexpected outcome, or a child, or a monster, take your pick.
