                Summer movie preview

                The most anticipated film of the summer likely goes to “Iron Man 2″ but with the return of favorites such as “Toy Story,” “Shrek” and “Sex and the City,” this May through July could be quite the adventure for movie lovers who crave a familiar story. Although quite a few great indies are rolling out in New York and L.A. (such as “Dogtooth”), below is the blockbusters we will likely see hit the Oxford Malco.

                  Out on the Street in Istanbul

                  OUT ON THE STREET – Oxford Town street beat reporter Phyllis Nobles slipped out of town about 10 weeks ago and literally hit the streets of Istanbul where she now works seasonally as an English teacher. In an effort to keep her Oxford ties strong, Nobles reports in this week to give us a glimpse of the Turkish culture as well as a heads up on when she expects to be hitting our streets again. This week’s Oxford Town features Nobles in the streets of Istanbul as she plans her return as a regular at Bottletree. (April 29, 2010, Page 12)
