@T_Basic:Andy Garcia starred as a police sergeant obsessed with finding the murderer of three blind women in “Jennifer 8.” Wesley Snipes starred as a hero aboard a hijacked plane in “Passenger 57.” Robert Redford produced, directed and narrated the beautiful but boring “A River Runs Through It,” about fly-fishing. “Home Alone 2” followed the theme of the first hit, with Macauley Culkin outwitting the bad guys in New York City. Spike Lee’s “Malcolm X” was three hours and 15 minutes long but never dragged. Denzel Washington was fabulous in the leading role.

Do you remember Fieldstone Inn, formerly Salvatore’s, in East Greenwich? The town changes restaurants more often than I change my socks.

Mayor Buddy Cianci proclaimed Thursday, Nov. 19, 1992 as Accordion Appreciation Day at a sparsely attended “The Big Squeeze: Accordions That Shook the World” show at Vets.

Bucky Walsh and Pat Carreau-Fortin starred in “Last of the Red Hot Lovers” at Newport Playhouse.

The Cranston Cultural Arts Council sponsored an afternoon of barbershop music at Park View Junior High, featuring the Narragansett Bay Chorus, with music director Richard Lapore, who also directed the award-winning Park View Chorus.

The Rhode Island Philharmonic welcomed their new music director, Zuohuang Chen.

Golden Pacific on Warwick Ave. had an all-you-can-eat buffet for $7.50. Remember the Barnsider’s Mile & A Quarter House in Providence? They had a complete Thanksgiving turkey dinner for $15.95.

Cranston’s Temple Torat Yisrael presented the Hanukah concert “Promised Land,” an original musical by George Fischoff.

Judith Stillman and the late Richard Cumming delighted the audience, contributors to the Furniture and Clothing Banks in Rhode Island, with an evening of Comic Childhood Classics at the Roger Williams Park Casino.
