Kristin Dreyer Kramer

Co-Host

It’s Movie Time host Kristin Dreyer Kramer grew up in a chillier part of the Midwest, where she spent several months of each year hibernating with her favorite books, movies, and mix tapes. After school, she often ate chocolate chip cookies while watching episodes of Monty Python’s Flying Circus with her friends, and she’s had a weakness for junk food and comedies ever since - much to the chagrin of her co-host, John DeSando.

Kristin now spends her days (and her nights…and her weekends) writing about the best and worst in movies, books, music, and games as the editor-in-chief of NightsAndWeekends.com. She also discusses the latest movies each week on both It’s Movie Time and On the Marquee.

Kristin is a member of the Women’s Film Critic Circle and the Central Ohio Film Critics Association. And, on those rare occasions when she’s not reading, writing, or watching movies, she enjoys traveling, fried pickles, knitting, and watching hockey.

On this week’s Shelf Discovery, Kristin tries to do it all with the guilt-ridden mom in Elisabeth Egan’s A Window Opens.
