A movie now in theatres and available via prime video to stream is Regina King’s directorial debut of One Night in Miami… What happens when Cassius Clay, Malcolm X, Jim Brown, and Sam Cooke find themselves in the same room? A fictional account of one incredible night where these icons discuss their roles in the civil rights movement and cultural upheaval of the 60s.
And one of my favorite places is being demolished after this weekend! IMAX® Theater Farewell Celebration
This is the last weekend to see a movie in the IMAX Theater at the Maritime Aquaium in Norwalk!The theater is slated for demolition to make way for a federal railroad bridge replacement project, therefore, they are sending it out in glory by showing as many as 22 fan-favorite movies from the past three decades! Special COVID protocols include reduced theater capacity and enhanced cleanings between shows, visit: www.maritimeaquarium.org/imax to reserve your last tickets!

Yes, at Bradley Mountain Farm in Southington: Join the Goat Cuddle Circle!
