Mark Your Calendar: At the Movies

Yes, I love to read. But if I’m going to be honest, I love going to the movies and watching TV almost just as much. They are, to me, another version of storytelling and if it has a good story, then I’m on board. And as someone who constantly has to come up with programming ideas, popular movies can be a great programming foundation. If my teens are going to be excited about an upcoming movie, chances are they will be excited about a program that celebrates that movie as well. So here’s a look at some upcoming movies that may make spark some great programming. But even if you don’t decide to do a program, you may also want to do related book displays. Or heck, maybe you’ll just want to put it on your calendar so you can go see the movie when it opens.
