    1. Fear not: midterms will be over by next Tuesday’s post! If there’s anything you’re really dying to recommend I can still add it to my watch list, I just won’t get to it this week.

        1. There’s no stopping the temptation. I have a Netflix account, TCM access and an entire book case full of DVDs, haha. I made a deal with myself, though, that if I’m a good student until Saturday I can take a study-break to watch HE Who Gets Slapped on the big screen. Eyes on the prize!

              1. Ah yes, I just went to the website…and did you see what’s playing the following week? ‘Psycho’! I’d definitely get a t-shirt for that one! And there’s a Pam Grier meet-and-greet for ‘Jackie Brown’! And ‘Mr. Roberts’ in November! Jeez, Lindsey, how do you find the time for school with a theater like this so close!

                1. They always have fantastic events going on. I’d be there every weekend if I could! Studies and brokeness stop me haha but someday, after grad school ends and/or when TCM picks me as a new host, I’m practically going to live there.
