Tonight I went to the movie theater to go see The Artist. I had never seen a silent film before in a theater setting so I was excited for this experience. None of my local theaters are showing this picture so I was forced to drive up to Lombard (40 minute drive). Believe it or not, it added to the experience in a positive way. My 15 year old brother tagge...
