The Somerville Kmart will close by mid-November, the Globe reports. It is the last store remaining from the old Assembly Square Mall, which opened in 1980.

Kmart is also closing stores in Brockton, Palmer, and Webster, as well as many other places throughout the country. The nearest remaining Kmarts (probably not for much longer) will be in Acton and Billerica.

Hi, everybody!

This past Friday night, and this past Saturday afternoon, the Somerville Theatre, in Somerville, MA, played the 70mm film of the 1961 movie version of West Side Story, as part of this theatre's annual 70mm Film Festival. What a beautiful film it was. This was a new print of the 70mm film version of West Side Story, that had not only been re-mastered, cleaned up, re-printed, and restored to its former color and glory, but had a sound track that was punchy and in one's face, as it's supposed to be. I attended both screenings of West Side Story with friends, and we all had lots of fun!
