PARADISE on GLEBE POINT ROAD:  The Story of the Valhalla Cinema

The films bombed in local box offices*, but Chris and Barry thought they could draw a decent crowd.

Twelve Films That Highlight the Best in Humanity

It’s time for the Greater Goodies, honoring movies from the past year that exemplify human strengths and virtues.  This year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture tend to emphasize the worst in humanity. For example, Joker is about the descent into homicidal madness. Jojo Rabbit is about one of the worst events in human history, the Nazi Holocaust. 1917 is about another catastrophe, World War One.
