Revisiting the Summer Movie Slate and Looking to the Fall

Rain or no rain, we can still hit the links: It’s the Tuesday after Labor Day. Kids are back in school. It’s cold. The only thing that says it’s still summer is the date.

The Advent of Poconos 3-D

The Poconos has 3-D! Well, not yet, not til Friday, when the Poconos Movieplex unveils its new 3-D screen for the release of Piranha 3-D.
