Since the pandemic began we have all done our fair share of binge watching on Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Pluto and others. I am totally guilty of this as well and I have to admit it’s given me time to see some movies I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.

Some of these movies were ok. Some of them were excellent and some left me scratching my head wondering what I just watched. The movie “In the Tall Grass” is one that left me asking myself what just happened. But now, after over a year of waiting we have another option.

Flagship Cinema in Thomaston has announced its reopening date as May 21, 2021 according to their Facebook page. Yes, you can now go on the date and see a movie on the big screen with that amazing surround sound stereo. You can happily spend too much money on popcorn, drinks, nachos and candy. The sounds and smells we’ve been missing for over a year are back.

Let’s support our local businesses as they reopen. After watching a movie in a real theater at Flagship hop across the road and get some Dorman’s ice cream. I have several favorites there including peppermint and grapenut but they are all excellent.

Social distancing and masks will apply but we will celebrate these victories as we get one step closer to some normalcy.
