i just got a facebook invitation to these screenings, it started sunday so i already missed the first two nights, but i think i'll go to the rest of them, i have only seen one of these movies.

honestly, i'm just glad to see there are activities like this being held in kuwait, something different to do on a weekday.

Too bad the screening of the Kite Runner got cancelled! Just when you thought they were about to do a triple bill with the screening of the Kite Runner, Kinsey and Schindler's List.
