Movies in the Square

Yesterday hits all the right notes to The Beatles fan in me. The idea that the world could forget the greatest band of all time is unconscionable, but the premise of the movie seems interesting, and hearing all the classic hits of the band on the big screen would be a real treat.
Enjoy your movie choice this weekend where ever the box office takes you.
