OT: Family Movie Nights

We don't watch much television. We haven't had cable or a satellite dish for the past almost-10 years. We rely almost exclusively on being able to "beg, borrow or steal" good family movies to watch on the weekends (or special feast days/celebrations) for "Family Movie Night". It is getting harder and harder to find entertaining videos that will satisfy all our diverse tastes.

But then I saw mention on a Yahoo group of a new venture by some Catholic families in the Chicago area. Faith and Family Flix is trying to be the Catholic alternative to Netflix or Blockbuster. Right now, they have a pretty good catalog of classics, comedies, documentaries and kid-vid that would rival Netflix or Blockbuster. They'll be adding more offerings as fast as they can. For about the same as a Netflix subscription ($9.99/1 dvd, $16.99/2 dvd, etc) we'll be able to bring home good family entertainment on a pretty consistent basis!

Go ahead, give Faith and Family Flix a try -- it's a worthwhile endeavor that needs to be supported by those interested in bringing good movies -- movies that edify, educate and entertain -- into our homes!

After all, what more could you want: the family sitting together watching a great movie while you sit there and knit?????

Thanks so much for the link. I'll be checking it out for our own family nights here in the future.
