Ladies 2

In continuing our efforts to provide Boston with diverse viewpoints on our local cinema scene, we at the Boston Online Film Critics Association are launching a monthly podcast focusing on our city’s repertory programming. We’re looking on both sides of the river for the classic, foreign, and cult films that get us excited to go to the movies on our free time.

Stay tuned! There’s much more to come in the next few weeks.
