So as hubby & I are HUGE classic film buffs, we're over there anywhere between once & 3 times a week depending on what's showing. (Tomorrow night we'll be going to see "Dr. Strangelove" (Peter Sellers, George C. Scott, etc.).

On tv: Just now finished watching Alfred Hitchcock's "Shadow of a Doubt" (Joseph Cotten, Theresa Wright) on the Turner Classic Movie channel. Life would almost be meaningless without Turner Classic Movies! Lol!!!
TCM is one channel I miss since hubby cut down on the cable fees.
We only have basic cable, no movies or nothing.

I haven't watched any "movies" in a while because our pirate satellite receiver system has been down for the past few weeks. Just waiting for the fix file to be posted on line. Then we'll be back in business.

I am about to watch Coraline. My company played a part in the making of the movie so we are taking two hours out of our day today to watch it as a company. We are also doing the whole ice cream sundae bar thing too so I am pretty happy right now.

This is a must see Documentary....

POV - Hold Me Tight, Let Me Go | PBS

It is a look at the Oxford's Mulberry Bush School for emotionally disturbed children.

If your local PBS channel has another airing of it this week watch it on TV so you get the closed captions.

If not, the like I posted has the full documentary to watch FOR FREE.

I give it four out of five stars.
