Radio Show #247 – George Myers and the Amherst Cinema

George Myers is the General Manager of the Amherst Cinema – a movie theater that offers Western Mass a “one of a kind” movie experience.

George presides over far more than a conventional movie house.

The Amherst Cinema is a happy confluence of crowd-pleasing “popcorn movies” – foreign, independent, art house films, and in general, film material that you are not likely to see at your neighborhood theater.

How these films are selected, and the other distinctive aspects of the Amherst Cinema, are presented in detail by George Myers in this program.
