The Cinemas is the brainchild of its host, Bahamian writer, director, and producer Travolta Cooper, who began the show as a result of an endorsement deal with The Bahamas’ movie theater chain. At heart, The Cinemas is designed to promote and encourage the new wave of Caribbean Cinema happening in the Region and around the world.
Now in it’s second season, the show first began as a series of small segments for the web. Shortly after, it was picked up by Cable Bahamas for a half hour version and by the time the show wrapped in October 2014, it was the top rated local show on Cable 12 and one of the top rated local shows on television in the Bahamas.
The show consists of movie reviews and interviews with a Caribbean twist.
