The Academy Awards is something near and dear to my heart. I watch it every year, eagerly consuming articles, talk shows and general awards buzz to help make my predictions for who will take home Hollywood’s most prestigious prize. It’s my Super Bowl, and I love every second of it.
A crowd of students, faculty and community members filled the Cinematheque auditorium on Friday in anticipation of Oscar-winning director Damien Chazelle to screen his film, “La La Land,” on 35mm print.

So, when I found myself sitting in a Marcus Point Cinema theater about to watch “It,” I didn’t know what to expect from the two-plus hours to come. After the credits finally rolled, though, I can say that “It” might be the exception to my horror genre aversion.
