Hey People – It’s Pageant Theater Time!

After almost 2 years of closure due to the pandemic and some remodeling, the Pageant Theater is open again! Chico’s only “art house” cinema theater.

I hope you didn’t miss “Benedetta,” a stark film, based on a true story, that takes place during Medieval times but with themes relevant to today: religious fanaticism and the Black Plague.

This week it’s “Come On, Come On,” a feel good movie that’ll warm you up during these cold winter nights.

Lastly, if you’re like me, you’ve probably seen the 1947 classic “It’s a Wonderful Life,” with Jimmy Stewart as George Bailey, practically every year during the holiday season. Watch poor George as he grapples with the purpose of his very existence. But the movie is also about issues we here in Chico are deeply concerned about today: Greed, political control, development, affordable housing and the meaning of community. Playing this weekend, Sat. and Sun.








Fall Equinox 2021

Today is the Fall Equinox. On this day we have equal hours of day and night. I can see in my “mind’s eye” the Earth, floating in deep space, tilting on its axis. We’re like passengers, along for the ride, year after year, season after season, around the Sun we go. So amazing, so wonderful! And so far this is one natural phenomenon of Earth that we humans haven’t screwed up – yet!

The Moon, the Earth’s companion (ours too.)
