Summer is winding down, and soon the leaves will begin to change. As Fall begins, we say goodbye to the season of blockbuster after blockbuster, but that doesn’t mean there will be a lack of great cinema. These are the movies I’m the most excited to see at the end of 2016.
While the summer movie season often brings with it the anticipation of the latest summer blockbusters and franchise favorites to a multiplex near you. While most theaters are busy getting ready for the newest big screen blockbusters, Portage 16 IMAX is doing something a little different this year.

Others seem to like its relation to “geocaching,” a hide-and-seek type game that makes the entire world your playing field.
