    Burlington’s own Chandler Levack, who spoke to our group in the Fall, has received great reviews and praise for her directorial debut and writing skills for her film “ I Like Movies”.  It is now playing in select theatres, including the Burlington Cineplex on Brant St. “Levack has done a remarkable job…If you are looking for a smart, nostalgic throwback to the kinds of films that marked the late nineties and …heyday of high school movies, then I Like Movies deserves more than a rental-see this in theatres, if you can” ( Globe and Mail, Friday March 10)
