World Cup on the Big Screen

July 6, 7 & 11: Semi-Finals and Finals @ Real Art Ways, Hartford

Great Idea, RAW, putting the World Cup action on your movie screen. We understand you've got comfy seating, AC, and a cafe stocked with alcoholic beverages and other snacks too.

We must admit that the Scenics have not been particularly caught up (at all) in this tournament, but we quite like the idea of football fanaticism, at least as it's been sold to us in literary form by Nick Hornby in Fever Pitch (a book, but also a 1997 film starring Colin Firth before that Fallon/Barrymore/baseball crap).

We are also sold on soccer as a medium for teenage passions and family life lessons in such classic films as Bend it Like Beckham and Rodney Dangerfield's adorable adolescent crossdressing caper Ladybugs.

Oh dear, we don't yet have a tag for books. Because we are barely literate, obvs. Situation... rectified!
