Weekends in Connecticut!

It’s going to be a GREAT Weekend in Connecticut! From spring fetivals, flowers in bloom, community events, live music and a classic movie from 1984 gets an update for 2022! Check it out!

Did you guys see the original Firestarter movie? From Stephen King. Drew Barrymore, Heather Locklear, George C Scott, David Keith?? One of my favorite movies!!! 


Now they’ve redon it with Zac Efron as the dad and to take over for Drew Barrymore’s part its Ryan Kiera Armstrong.  

Over the years audiences have watched Ryan grow up on the big screen in movies including The Art of Racing In The Rain, IT: Chapter II, The Gloria's: Life On The Road and The Tomorrow War.

In 2021, Ryan joined the cast of American Horror Story: Double Feature as Alma Gardner - making history as the series' first lead young actor.

And now  Ryan will reprise the role of Charlie McGee, made famous by Drew Barrymore in the original 1984 adaptation of Stephen King's classic novel Firestarter. 

Take a look!
