Ebbtide Eats: Thai Bistro

Everyone else at Thai Bistro the night I went — a chilly October evening at approximately 7:30 p.m. — had the right idea. Just a six minute drive north of SCC, this haven should be any Thai food-lover’s new go-to. Throughout my visit, there was a decent number of patrons that kept the place buzzing,…

“He sold his soul for rock ’n’ roll,” declares the tagline of Brian De Palma’s devilish rock opera, hinting at themes to come.

‘Illumination’ Lights Up SCC: Shining a spotlight on the power of art

“It’s about abilities, not disabilities.” These are the words that viewers will see posted amongst the works in SCC’s latest art installation. The gallery, entitled “Illumination,” celebrates artists who live with various disabilities. A positive message indeed — as these artists do not appear limited, but quite the opposite, as their art seems to jump…

Double Exposure: “The China Syndrome” (1979)

In the 1970s, disaster films were all the rage. Audiences flocked to the theaters to witness the melodramatic appeal of “Earthquake” and “Airport,” which often threw allstar casts into fantastical situations. The release of James Bridges’ “The China Syndrome,” however, presented an understated and starkly believable tale of an inner-city nuclear nightmare. Its cast of…
