These were similar setups at the 2 movie theaters Matty worked at over 20 years ago. Doing “tandem screenings” was a nerve-wracking because both projectors would have to start running at the same exact time otherwise the film would break/shred within the projectors…

Scream overtook Spiderman: No Way Home at the box office… On it’s opening weekend… This weekend Spiderman: No Way Home retook the number one spot

2-Pixel Christmas

8-Bit Christmas is a pretty good film you should check out on HBO Max. It’s a kind of an updated A Christmas Story for the Gen-X crowd.

“Yule Cat” from Iceland will get you if you don’t get new clothes at Christmas!

There was a rumor back in the late 1980’s that Atari dumped a ton of cartridges & merchandise in a hole somewhere in the New Mexico desert. This documentary shares the quest to find and excavate the landfill…
