Having lived here since territorial days and blessedly so far surviving the pandemic through God’s grace and the heroic work of health professionals developing and providing vaccination, we recently began going back to the movies. Please, Anchorage, mask/vaccine up and see the latest movies on the big screen at your local theater. There is nothing like it at home.

Regarding social distancing, I have not attended one general public showing that had more people than at our small private watch party. A couple times, I was the only patron! The big screens make for big dreams and inspiration. The theater companies opened them back up for us, enjoy the movies safely and help keep them open in our city.
