18 Films To See at @Cinequest Part 1 (March 2nd- March 4th) by @StrongArm408

Cinequest is here again, and your boy StrongArm is attempting to catch as many films while still working 40 hours a week. I will be checking out earlier screenings, mainly, due to my closing shifts at work. Here are some films that are playing during March 2nd- March 4th, that I recommend. I will list all screenings for these films as well so it will go beyond the 4th. I will post more articles for March 5th-8th, and 9th -13th as well.
Let’s get right to it starting with a film that screens in 45 minutes that I will probably miss due to writing this article, lol.
