Did you know India has the largest cinema industry in the world and some of the tastiest food?

Space is limited; registration is required for each adult and child attendee. 

If you're going to watch movie on this list make it this one.

Cuba is a country of 11 million people that is roughly the size of Pennsylvania. For being less than 100 miles off of our coast, it’s surprising how little most know about this country and its people. A great way to bridge culture gaps and create greater understanding is through actively watching films from around the globe. If the viewer is lucky, they may just walk away with a tiny glimpse into the beliefs and ideals of another part of the world. As Cuba and the world react to the death of an influential leader, it is important to look past arbitrary lines on a map.

2016 is going to be a great year for readers and moviegoers. With so many books being translated into movies, there is a little bit of something for every type of reader. Just like Anythink's blog post for book-to-movie adaptations in 2015, this year has its own list of movies we can't wait to see. If you haven't read any of the books on this list, check them out before they hit the big screen.

A scene from the movie "Beaches"

Confession: Sometimes I need a good cry. A sobbing, runny-nose, eyes-swollen, whole-box-of-tissue cry. I’m not sure why or what brings on this sudden urge. I’m never aware of this feeling approaching. It’s not like I can say to myself, “Self, I think you’ll feel like crying tomorrow so you better go buy a new pair of shoes today in hopes of warding it off.” Nope, it never happens like that. All of sudden, it just hits me and there it is – I need to cry. Not just one or two tears, but the open-the-flood-gates kind of cry.
