In Memoriam
We all remember Jan Hooks from Saturday Night Live. Her imitation of Tammy Faye Baker was the best. You probably have your favorite character. She was only 57 when she died. Way too young.

Don't Forget to Vote

It's time to start voting for the films for next season. You've been sent an email of the dramas (there are tons to look at and consider). You can either email your choices to or bring your list to the film this Sunday. Watch for emails that will include nominations for documentaries and comedies. Be sure to vote. Speaking of the film this Sunday, you're in for a treat.


The upcoming film Barbara,  is a tale about a female doctor in East Germany trying to defect to West Berlin.  The German film will be shown at the Carmike Theater (formerly Digiplex) in Oceanside at 3:00 pm, Oct. 5. Here's the trailer:


The Red Shoes

There are so many dramas to choose from. Only a few will be in next season's lineup. I noticed that someone had nominated The Red Shoes, a classic film from 1948. For some reason vintage films don't often make the vote. But guess what? as luck would have it, The Red Shoes will be shown on TCM this Sunday at 5:00 pm. You can just barely make it after you see Barbara. You might want to DVR it for later viewing.

Kensington Video 

Another sad tale about the demise of a beloved community establishment. The Kensington Video after 30 years in business will be closing February, 2015. There will soon be no bookstores or video stores. What's this world coming to?
