By John DeSando, WCBE's "It's Movie Time," "Cinema Classics," and "On the Marquee"
Larry Crowne is the king of summer romances, a sweet story about the titular middle-aged nice guy (Tom Hanks), who gets a new life after being let go from a Wal-Mart-like retail store. His renaissance comes in the form of a community college education starting with a speech course taught by the attractive but dour Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts).
Award-winning Cinema Classics discusses great movies then and now. From films, genres, directors, and actors to everything else in between, the hosts don't always agree, but they are always fun and informative.
Cinema Classics is regularly broadcast at 8:01 pm Thursday and 2:01 pm Saturday on WCBE 90.5 FM and streaming at WCBE.org.
