OPX 10: Only Millennium Kidz Know!


Ready for some semi-recent nostalgia? (We like to think it’s semi-recent since the era we’re covering is technically in this millennium, but GOD, just humor us..) This week at the Omniplex, we’re covering the strange transitional era between 1996 and 2006. We examine the trends as well as the ups and downs of each. So strap in for this wild Disney ride (a few of which were made into movies) through an age of sequels, remakes, book films, and tv adaptations.

OPX 8: Quarantine IV: A New Hope

There’s finally.. FINALLY… a light at the end of the tunnel. The Omniplex is open, welcome to our 4th.. and hopefully final.. Quarantine watch cast. This is a special one, as it denotes the one-year anniversary of when the quarantine (in America, anyways) started. And since the vaccines are rolling out and gaining speed, we finally a year later have some hope for some semblance of normalcy in the near future. Until then, Zephyr, Albert, and Austin present what they have watched in the final days of the mass quarantine, some some spectacular, some horribly, horribly bad.

Because Albert couldn’t remember the link to the MBMBaM TV show link, here it is and have fun!
