"It could be the busiest day since the pandemic for Kansas City-area theaters at a time when the majority of theaters across the nation have shut down for a second time or never reopened. But because of the changing landscape of movies, theaters are now facing new competition from direct to streaming releases of movies . . .

As always, we want our blog community to stay safe because reality can be a lot scarier than anything on the screen.
And so, this bit of holiday hope inspires our late night peek at local movie clips that share a unique perspective about this cowtown.
