Field of Dreams and Shawshank are two films I didn’t see in the theater when they came out. Now’s my chance.

Science fiction is truly one great movie genre.

To Kill A Mockingbird - - OMG, I have seen this film several times on TCM (and read the book) but had never seen it on the Big Screen until March and while the story always holds up it really does have more of an impact when you watch it with an audience.....Thank you.

Hope to see To Kill A Mockingbird, which I love, but really don't want to miss Ben-Hur and Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen - only have seen them on TV.

Went to Dyersville, Iowa during a road trip from California to Michigan and back a few years ago. We had been planning a cross country trip for at least a year, dubbing it as our Field of Dreams trip.  Sat on the bleachers, ran around the bases, and disappeared in the corn field.  Ben-Hur and Lawrence of Arabia are epic, and I love them, but Field of Dreams touches my heart.

Ben Hur & Lawrence of Arabia on the big screen is something spectacular to look for. True Grit with its backdrop, too. Wizard of Oz & My Fair Lady for the sound, too!! Field of Dreams, too.

Gotta do The Alamo (1960) & Spartacus, too.

Wow!!  Wizard of Oz has been my fav my whole life. I have a living room full of beautiful Oz momentos. Just added the gorgeous Hallmark ruby red slippers ornament to my collection. Got my fingers crossed.
