It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Time for family and presents and decorations and, hey . . . movies!  Movies have become just as much a part of the holidays as your adorned tree and so this year, I’m offering up some suggestions for action pictures that are a bit off the beaten path. These are not necessarily holiday classics, but add these into your holiday viewing to mix things up.  AND, they make for a great background noise at your party. 

The summer movie season is behind us, the weather will soon cool off (we can hope), and, fortunately for film loves, some great movies are on the way this fall.  

There’s a lot coming out between now and December. Here are some of the highlights, so you can plan your trips to the theater accordingly. 

While there are dozens of different films at The Sidewalk Film Festival, the average cinephile has only a limited space to see them.  Here are the films that I saw:

Three cheers for summertime – it’s the perfect opportunity to kick back with some cold beverages and heaps of popcorn to enjoy some classic summer films. These are a few of my favorites…

Theatre Tuscaloosa’s 2018-2019 season “We Go Together” will feature three plays, two musicals, the Alabama Community Theatre Festival, a one-week showing of A Christmas Carol, and two SecondStage productions.

Summer is the loudest and most exciting season for movies, and this year doesn’t seem to give us a break for all the cacophony – not that we want one.  Actually, this year’s crop of sequels and kids’ movies looks to be a great deal of fun...

The upcoming fall 2017 Bama Art House Film Series has been announced. The series features six screenings at the Bama Theatre in downtown Tuscaloosa, with the first scheduled for August 22.

A program of The Arts Council of Tuscaloosa, this series will feature drama, comedy, action, and a documentary. The lineup will conclude with the Manhattan Short Film Festival.

If you feel the heat of the summer bearing down on you and you need a little escape – but you don’t have time to take a beach trip, why not take a short break by taking in a movie? I’ve said before that one of my favorite things in the world is to escape into a cool (yay!) dark theater to check out a movie. ANY movie. I love them all. I especially love indie films, and if you’re the same, I’d highly recommend enjoying the films each week at the Bama Theatre downtown during the Summer Art House film series. Hats off to the Arts Council of Tuscaloosa for bringing these new and unique indie films to T-Town!

Greetings, all. Here’s to yet another outstanding week of exciting events here in Tuscaloosa and Northport. This week, you’ve got plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy yourself.
