Arthur Grant

editor and founder of the Cinema Cafe, hated school. Movies were his refuge. In the dark, there was no-one looking at him, judging him, testing him etc. He got to sit back, look through a magical window of understanding and enjoy all kinds of memorable experiences. Hopefully he can share some of these and other precious times with you, his fellow movie buffs, and inspire you to share yours at The Cinema Cafe. 

Your comments and questions are not only welcome, they are encouraged.
