I’ve been going to the movies as far as I can remember and one of the best parts to me about going to the cinema when I was a kid was being able to soak up the ambiance and seeing the happiness of the people around you. I believe the first movie I saw in theaters was either Dumbo or Pinocchio. I enjoyed the experience so much that I wanted to go to the cinema as much as I could, but that was before I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in LA. That was the worst experience I have ever had in a movie theater! It was really loud with people talking, kids throwing popcorn, and I swear I remember hearing someone playing a radio in the back. After that experience I remember every time my father said, “We’re going to the movies today,” I always responded back with, “The good one right?” Of course I was referring to either an AMC or United Artist theater, but when he would say no, I would just suggest we rent a movie instead.
Ever since then, I was always on the hunt for the best cinema experience I could find. So far, the best to me (and many others) would be the Arclight Cinema hands down and two weeks ago I would have agreed. But now, it’s the Island Cinema. I heard about the newly updated cinema from my co-host, Bryce Pilgrim and when he told me about it, I knew I had to go see what Island Cinema had to offer. With that said, here is my review:

Hello everyone and welcome to the SSWL Network news desk. We are posting this to let you all know that we are taking this week off. However, we will be posting a non-audio version of the show later this week. Basically that means we will have a full rundown (movie/video game/tech news, flix we pix, other randomness, etc.) of what we usually cover, but without the audio. So keep checking back for that and thanks for reading/listening.
