20 Pennsylvania Inspired Movies


“Art imitates life” -- or so the saying goes -- which is why I’m watching twenty classic Pennsylvania inspired movies to teach me a little something about the state. The cinematic journey begins this coming weekend (April 6-8) with a Rocky marathon. After each movie, I’ll be blogging what I learned about the Keystone State through the camera’s lens.

I’d love for you to watch along with me...so I’ll post the upcoming movie on HAY’s Facebook page the Monday before the showing. So scratch the popcorn... bring on the pretzels and mustard and “close the lights” -- it’s movie time!
