I hardly know where to start to describe the richness of the experience of seeing A.I.: Artificial Intelligence on Dec. 10, 2007 at the Michigan Theater. As the film drew to its end, I kept thinking how thankful I was to see such a beautiful film in such a beautiful setting.
The 1940s was a Golden Age for Christmas movies. It just seemed the right time for holiday movies, with World War II over and the post-war Baby Boom under way. Area moviegoers have a wonderful opportunity this year to see many of these holiday classics on the big screen.
