    Don't work there, just practically live there. Still, if you live in the Boston area and like movies, there is a lot playing in the next couple months that is well worth seeing.

    It's the theater's 50th anniversery, so they're going with that theme somewhat - James Bond first appeared in print 50 years ago, 50 years of french film, etc. Still, a bunch of great stuff, and when you consider most of the shows are double features, a lot are well worth going to see even if you already own the DVDs.

    The novel From Russia With Love was released before the novel Doctor No. For that matter, Moonraker was before Diamonds are Forever.

    And they may actually have been listed that way on the program; I reversed a couple playtimes that were listed at 7 first, then 5 and 9.
