Extraordinary Stan Lee – Aug. 22

Looks like the latest one day only movie at Cineplex is exceptionally nerdy. All about “The Man” himself. It’s only playing at two theatres though (Cineplex South Edmonton & Cineplex North Edmonton) and just one show time each at 7pm.

Chex out the tribute to Stan Lee (and find showtimes here).
