In this week’s episode, I talk with the owners of a new theater in Asheville: The Grail Moviehouse. More on our collaboration here. It’s in an old warehouse that has been fixed up. There’s cozy chairs, beer from local breweries, and some stadium style seats in the back. It’s a great place to watch old movies on the big screen and see some new stuff you can’t find at the theater chains.
Before we get into the conversation, time to pay the bills. This week’s sponsor is called Seat Block. You know how when you’re on an airplane and the person in front of you jams their seat back into your knees…
No, I’m just kidding. One of the great things about the Torg Stories podcast at this point is that you don’t have to listen to me read any ads. But, you can still help us out. Go to iTunes, find the Torg Stories podcast and click on reviews. We don’t have ten reviews yet, but when we do, they will start showing up and help other people find the pod. If you have friends who are podcast listeners, send them a link to Torg Stories. Please.
This week, my family and I went to see Roger Ross William’s new documentary, Life Animated. It’s about an autistic man. His life story and how his family was finally able to connect with him through Disney films. Cool family. Dad is a writer. Protagonist is funny and touching. The film was a teeny bit on the intense side for my eight year old, but our ten year old really liked it. Movie for grown ups that can appeal to kids, probably ten and older. Also interesting as a teacher for thinking about working with autistic children.

The theater is just South of downtown on French Broad Avenue. Quite a bit of free parking, which is amazing, for Asheville. It’s become my go to spot for parking when I go to downtown Asheville.
