Welcome to my new web zine Modern Movie Reviews. My name's Danielle Schlaffly and I'm a junior at Northside High. I hope you will use this site to get the scoop on phat flicks showing in our local theatres, what's worth paying $8 bucks to see on the big screen, and which flicks you should wait and rent for a couple dollars.

Theatre Club

Tuesday Night Dates has become one of the most popular extracurricular events at Northside! Last week, 17 of us took the Holly and Blossom trolley over to the Northside Junior College and watched the 7 o'clock Bowling for Columbine, the riveting, sometimes shocking sometimes funny documentary on the gun industry. Afterwards, we all gathered at the JC's cafe for pizza and discussions. No, you don't have to "have a date," silly! Everybody's invited. And of course the movies are less expensive on Tuesdays, even at the Imperial. Come join us! We're easygoing, and we stick together!


Emmi Goldman will be auditioning for the role of Anais Nin for the City Players production of The Diarist, a play adapted from The Diaries of Anais Nin. Emmi's not exactly what you would call overconfident about her chances of getting the part, although she did get a small role in their production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream last year and we were all very proud of her. We wish her the very best of luck in her auditions. Naturally, if she DOES GET THE PART, we'll miss her and she won't be able to help us out in One Act's this coming spring, but that's okay! Go for it, Emmi!

6 Free Tickets Left from the generous gift The Savoy donated to Theatre Club this summer. All you have to do to claim a ticket is take the survey by Rockin to Vote, which takes all of about 15 minutes to fill out and we'll forward it to the sponsors. Hey, it doesn't obligate you to vote! You don't even have to be eighteen! All you have to do is read about our democracy and fill out the form. You'll be in good company! So far this fall, nearly 250 Northside students have pocketed free tickets from The Savoy and the Rockin to Vote campaign.
