Tenet 70mm Exclusive at Gables Cinema

Tenet 70mm Exclusive at Gables Cinema
John David Washington is the new Protagonist in Christopher Nolan’s original sci-fi action spectacle Tenet. Armed with only one word -- Tenet -- and fighting for the survival of the entire world, the Protagonist journeys through a twilight world of international espionage on a mission that will unfold in something beyond real time. Not time travel. Inversion. Gables Cinema is one of only six theaters in the country playing the film on this ultra high-quality format.
