His subsequent film, LA 92, showcases the neighborhoods of Los Angeles, California, just after the Rodney King verdict was announced. Violent protests, looting, and arson lasted several days and left more than 50 people dead.

In 1974, they reunite briefly in New York. Their lives have diverged their friendship, which once thrived on assumption as well coordinated as sweater sets, is strained and ambiguous. Old time banter rings false. Their attempts at honest conversation only show they can no longer afford to have very much in common.

When you and your child drop off their ‘extra’ candy, they will get $1 for each pound of candy they donate. They can choose to keep the money or donate it back to help Operation Thank You to help pay for shipping the candy to the soldiers. Plus – they will also be registered to win other cool prizes.

Each business office has their own drop-off days and times – usually during the first week of November:
