Just checking in to say—after a long hiatus from updating the blog—that this recent Ben Affleck news really fills me with quite a bit of joy. #Batfleck (Image via The Fix’s “5 Reasons Ben Affleck’s Batman Will Be Awesome.“)

Local news network NECN is exploring the sites of iconic Boston movie scenes, and headed to the L Street Tavern this week. It’s pretty charming to hear from the perspective of the bar’s owner. She fondly recalls shutting down the street for a black tie Oscars party the night Good Will Hunting contended, refers to the movie as “we,” and remembers Robin Williams famously saluting the people of South Boston (“you’re a can of corn!”) in his Oscar speech.
