Limelight Magazine’s Top 10 Movies of 2016

Although we were hoping to screen 100 films in a theater or drive-in this year, we ended the year with 71. Of that total, 49 were first run films while the rest were retro films that were screened from original or restored 35-mm prints. In reflecting back on the first run movies, it didn’t quite reach the level of 2015, but there were still some solid films in the mix. Below is our top 10 films of 2016. Rather than go into detail about each one, we’re only going to list them so you can discover these movies for yourself. (Disclaimer: This list is based on films I’ve seen as of Dec. 31, 2016. It could be adjusted in the future as I view other films from 2016 in early 2017).
