2016 wasn’t a great year for mainstream blockbusters, but the indie circuit and awards films were quite stellar this last year. Starting in early February with films like Hail, Caesar, Deadpool, and The Witch, all the way through the spring with Sing Street and The Nice Guys, to awards season with Moonlight and La La Land, 2016 was pretty consistent if you ask us. This last year also brought us the first Star Wars spin-off movie in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Mel Gibson made his directing comeback and we saw Martin Scorsese struggle with his faith on screen. Documentaries were pivotal in 2016, with film like 13th, Cameraperson and Tower. And it was a great year for musical movies. 2016 was a tough year for a lot of people, but the cinema did have a lot to offer that we hope you enjoyed as much as we did.

Drive It Like You Stole It – Sing Street
