Time to Read a Good Movie

The Shaggy Dog (1959)

Now Playing 1963 / 1965 London, Ontario

A couple of vintage newspapers revealed some interesting combinations at the local theaters here in London, Ontario, Canada. Plenty of viewing choices to pick from and not a superhero in […]

“You’re old only when you forget you’re young.” In zany Howard Hawks fashion comes this screwball comedy which re-teams the famed director with an actor unlike any other. Mr. Cary […]

Singapore (1947)

“It was five long years since I’d been here but nothing was changed. From every corner memories came back to me. Things I’d hoped I’d forgotten.” So says Fred MacMurray’s […]
