    You have asked this question before.

    There is no need to write 'movie' three times, or three sentences when two will suffice.

    Try again.

    Yes. They are now both grammatically correct. Most native speakers would probably use "There is half an hour left" for the second sentence.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
