Opening September 9: Mere Brother Ki Dulhan

The hits keep coming to the Chicago area with the release of Yash Raj Films’ Mere Brother Ki Dulhan (“My Brother’s Bride) on Friday, September 9. The wacky rom-com stars Katrina Kaif, Imran Khan and Ali Zafar.

Mere Brother Ki Dulhan opens on Friday at the Big Cinemas Golf Glen 5 in Niles, AMC South Barrington 30 in South Barrington and Regal Cantera Stadium 17 in Warrenville. Check here for a complete U.S. theater list. It has a listed runtime of 2 hrs. 25 min.

All three theaters are understandably carrying over Bodyguard after it made $1,361,790 during its first six days in the U.S.  Bol, which earned a much more modest $105,354 in its first six days, is sticking around at the Golf Glen 5 and South Barrington 30.

Last week’s other new release, the compelling but dark That Girl in Yellow Boots, leaves area theaters on Thursday.

The Golf Glen 5 will also carry over the Tamil movie Mankatha for another week.
