Chicago's Patio Theater did indeed reopen recently (a couple of weeks ago, actually), so if you're in the area, check it out. Screenings are only $5, so buy some popcorn while you're there and show 'em some love.
A lot of graduations going on this week, too — Chicago Public Schools let out this week, I think, and a lot of Chicago-area colleges are doing the graduation thang, too, so at long last, I thought I'd have Jason and Becky finally finish school this year. (Although I forget if I've ever said in the strip, Kurt never finished college, and Melissa never started.)
My Minneapolis apartment hunt got delayed to this week because of a last-minute freelance gig, so no extra update this week, I'm afraid — so I'll see you on Monday with Multiplex #600… which will just be continuing this conversation, because I think it's kind of silly to celebrate arbitrary milestones in the text of a story. But we can have a party in the Comments!

There’s no telling how the film will turn out, but the trailer for The Theory of Everything impressed me by having a respectably balanced focus on both the life of Stephen Hawking (and relationship with his first wife) and the work he is so admired for, unlike so many other film biographies of so-called Great Men.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) directs Eddie Redmayne and Felicity Jones in the November 7th release.
