Movies with staying power, or lack thereof, in your local area.

I just found out that Black Panther is finishing its run at my local cinema as of the end of Wednesday.

I thought for a movie that's taken as much money and is as loved as it was, it seems like a short run.

It just got me thinking. What are some movies that have surprised you with the length of their run at your local cinema?

On the flip side Wild Hogs took what seemed like forever to disappear. Still can't figure that one out.

They're still showing the Greatest Showman over here. That came out in December.

Failure to Launch (2006) still airs most Sunday evenings in my local cinema (at a reduced price), it is regularly packed with couples on dates.

Prince Charles cinema in London airs The Room (2003) at least once a month, and up to several times a week. There's a 15th anniversary special event coming up.

That movie's just randomly been brought back for a bonus week here.

By the way, the only reason I ever saw Deadpool in the cinema was because another local venue randomly brought it back for a week. So if a local cinema wants to do the same for Black Panther when I actually have money, that'd be nice.

I'm actually banking on them letting big movies stay super long, because I'm doing a watch-through of the MCU and I'm hoping that by the time I get back to Black Panther they're still showing it in the cinema. Would love that.
