Lights, Camera, Action…Again

Remakes and questions about originality have been around for a loooong time:

What has been will be again,

    what has been done will be done again;

    there is nothing new under the sun.

Ecclesiastes 1:9

Although Ecclesiates didn’t have Hollywood in mind, the observation still applies given the current entertainment industry climate of remakes, reboots and reimaginings. Stop by the movie remakes display at the Wheelock Branch of Tacoma Public Library for a review of popular movies that came, went, and have now come around again. Beauty and the Beast, Planet of the Apes, or any film in the long line of Spiderman reboots. From Freaky Friday to Ghostbusters, Tacoma Public Library can help you explore how everything old is new (and, just maybe, good) again.
