Celebrate the Cinema


In light of depressed movie attendance due partly to the recent murders at an Aurora movie theater, we should remember the profound joy and inspiration good movies can offer.

TOS has reviewed a number of films: The Avengers, Act of Valor, The Help, Atlas Shrugged: Part I, and The King’s Speech.

The print journal has featured the articles, “Atlas Shrugged’s Long Journey to the Silver Screen” and “An Interview with Atlas Shrugged Movie Producer Harmon Kaslow.”

Finally, TOS blog has published posts about The Dark Knight Rises, Marry Poppins, Hugo, and The Grey.

Remember that movie theaters remain very safe places to experience meaningful art, see inspiring heroes, and celebrate our values.
