Happy Labor Day JawHeads! Hug someone who works hard. Big thanks from CinemaJaw to all the men and women who help make our country work!

This week on CinemaJaw in honor of IT Chapter 2, we take a look at small towns. Not necessarily American small towns, but there is something about Americana that speaks to the small town experience. From the idea white picket fences of the 50’s to the suburban decay of the 80’s, the who-cares attitiude of the 90’s to boom/bust of the aughts… Small Towns scream for storytelling!
