Out filmmaker Roland Emmerich’s “Stonewall,” opening at the Ritz East theatre Sept. 25, is more ambitious than good. In fact, at times it is not even particularly good, but downright cringe-inducing.

Let’s be honest. The only time Berks County registers with some people is when there is inclement weather. But Berks gets a bum rap. The largest city in the county is Reading, and most of what people think they know about it goes back years or decades. Ask them what else is in Berks County and you can bet you’ll get zero answers.

Pope-a-geddon. Pope-ocalypse. Pope-apalooza.

Call it what you want. Pope Francis is definitely the coolest pope we’ve had in a long time, but he really knows how to cramp a city’s style and infrastructure, not unlike a massive blizzard or hurricane.

If you’ve had your fill of the Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross House and want some new historic scenery, a quick trip north can provide equal parts education and entertainment.
