I’m so grateful for Turner Classic Movies. I love movies, and because of TCM, I always have something interesting to watch and have learned a great deal about classic films. I enjoy the introductions by Robert Osborne and Ben Mankiewicz, and features like The Essentials, TCM Guest Programmer, TCM Underground and Star of the Month have introduced me to films I might otherwise have never seen. I also enjoy watching the original trailers and shorts. TCM has a wonderful website, cool blog MovieMorlocks.com and a monthly viewer’s guide call Now Playing.
The TCM Event Series is my newest favorite things. Every month, TCM hosts a classic film viewing at select movie theatres. Fortunately, a theatre close to me is showing these movies. In August, I went to see Singin’ In The Rain and it was magical seeing it on the big screen. As an added bonus, the movies include a special introduction and interview. September’s movie is The Birds.
