In Boise, there is this group called "Boise Classic Movies," which shows films at our local historic (1927) theater once a month.  I've found myself frustrated because most of the films they show are 80's and 90's films (mostly 90's).  They ask for film suggestions, and I continually request something from the 40's and 50's, but those are never shown.  The man who heads the group appears to be in his thirties, so, to him, I suppose 80's and 90's movies are classic films.  They do show White Christmas and It's a Wonderful Life every year, but other than that, the last (in my opinion) classic film they showed was probably in 2013.

There are some obvious hard cuts in the movie […]
