The Great Flood

We’ve been looking forward to this next one ’round the old Sun-Ray for some time now. It’s definitely on my personal drop-everything-to-sit-down-and-watch list (I wish that list was longer but popcorn scooping and chit chat so often beckon) and I especially look forward to watching it with an audience. I hope it’s a big one. […]

What would Ingrid eat?

A few weeks ago Tim, Thomas Tooke (Sun-Ray kitchen elf and culinary explorer extraordinaire) and I watched CASABLANCA, our Valentine’s Day pick, seeking inspiration for a three course menu. This kind of research is among my favorite of my responsibilities at Sun-Ray and previous food-and-film pairings have provided plenty of food for thought: THE GODFATHER, […]

Pleasing to All

We focus all of our energy and attention on selecting films that we hope people will want to see, providing the best concession stand options in the area, and running a top notch movie theatre.  Sometimes it takes a while for someone to figure […]

Much Ado About Pizza

All week I’ve restrained from making goofy jokes to alleviate my nervousness that Jacksonville wouldn’t respond to a black and white Shakespeare film directed by a man best known for Sci-Fi Soap Opera mashup television shows. You know, “This film had better turn out to be Much Ado About Something,” et cetera. But here we […]

Quintron and Miss Pussycat

Of all the jam packed month of April has to offer this show is one of my top picks! In order to sing their praises effectively we present as our guest blogger for the day Matthew Moyer. Mr. Quintron and Miss Pussycat have always been ill-served by rockclubs. Their music, their vision, their puppetry is […]
