The Screening Room
Non-Fiction puts viewers into the Parisian publishing world. The film follows an editor and author as they deal with their own inevitable mid life crisis, the changing nature of their industry, and their significant others.
CatVideoFest is one of the most unique films out this week. For one day only on July 7 you have the chance to watch a compilation reel of the best cat videos. Gathered from submissions, sourced animations, and from YouTube, if you are a lover of cats this is the film to see.

Movies in the Square
Movies in the Square on July 11 is the 1980’s Tom Cruise classic Top Gun. Don’t forget to bring your chair for this free event in Springer Market Square.
This weekend is all about Spider-Man: Far From Home. I love the take Marvel has done with Tom Holland as the lead and I am especially looking forward to seeing how Holland’s Peter Parker deals with life after the events in Avengers: Endgame.
There are still many great films available at the multiplexes this week. The Screening Room has Pavarotti from master Ron Howard. Werner Herzog’s Meeting Gorbachev would be a great retrospective of a powerful leader from the 1980’s.
If you are looking for true 80’s nostalgia, Top Gun playing in Springer Market Square might just be the choice for you. Wherever the box office takes you this weekend, enjoy the show.
