Most of us have studied a second language at some point in our lives. You may have taken two years in high school Spanish, been lucky enough to take a Gap Year and backpack across parts of the world, are just a huge Star Trek fan and learned Klingon in your free time, or you may never have studied but always wanted to.
Double Features #3
Halloween Drive-in Double Features #2
We’re in full swing of the spooky season and well into October. I’ve watched a little better than one film a day, so far. How about you? Are you keeping up with one scary movie a day? If not, think of the health benefits. Horror movies get your pulse really soaring and your heart really beating. Your blood circulates faster and your sweat glands get a good workout too. In my humble opinion, watching horror movies is better than going to the gym!
October is such a fun month to read or listen to a good spooky story and dream of Halloween. Whether you like full-on fright, eerie and unsettling, or gently magical, Hoopla has something for you!

Grab some popcorn, a bowl of candy and let’s stay up until the witching hour with the King of Horror.
