We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on PressBackers.com, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Watchmen. Watchmen! WATCHMEN! OMG! OMG!!!!! WAAAAAAAATCHMEEEEEEEENN!!!!!!

Yes, apparently some movie called Watchmen is opening today. Hose yourselves down, fanboys and fangirls. It ain't all that.

Your real best best today is the Academy Awards Foreign Language nominee The Class. Laurent Cantet's adaptation of a Paris schoolteacher's memoir is nowhere near the "inspirational teacher movie" cliches -- and a bracing challenge to the idea of whether public education can even work any more. And you know what else? Nobody in this movie is painted blue with his johnson hanging out.
