I got to see something in theaters I normally wouldn’t have the opportunity to see; Singing In The Rain. Fantom presents older film special events. The worst part is their price. There is no discount or matinee price. But hey 60th anniversary showing: score!!

Beautiful Places filled with Beautiful Faces but not so Beautiful Movie Endings…
Movies that end without a happy ending, but I don’t want to spoil it for you, so if you ever want to watch these few movies, don’t go in expecting a happy ending.
