GMG Q&A Robert Newton- Head Cheese At The Cape Ann Community Cinema

Local Website everyone should know about (excluding GMG) I’m wrangling all my unemployed movie critic friends to produce reviews and movie-related content.

How long have you lived in Gloucester?
Since the spring, but summers since birth. Actually, since before that. I’m pretty sure I was conceived in a cottage on Wheeler’s Point on Memorial Day in 1968.

What is your favorite season In Gloucester?
The fall, after the tourists and before the freeze.
Do you have any secret outdoor spots in Gloucester where you go to “get away”?
Lighthouse Beach after dark at low tide, when the bioluminescent microorganisms in the sand glow when you step on the soft damp sand, crushing their tiny, tiny exoskeletons.
What is your favorite pizza joint in Gloucester?
Sebastian’s. Best sauce ever. I think it comes from Heaven.
What is your favorite sub shop in Gloucester?
Virgilio’s, and not just because it’s next door.
What place would you go for a romantic dinner in Gloucester?
Squam Rock, despite the lingering fear of tripping and falling to my death.
What is your favorite bar in Gloucester?
I’m not a big drinker, but Dog Bar sure does make good sandwiches.
What is your favorite breakfast joint in Gloucester?
Two Sisters, and not just because it’s on my walk to work.
What is your favorite local event in Gloucester?
I love the community vibe of the Block Parties, and the total chaos of Fiesta.
In the summer do you prefer the beach or to be on a boat?
I’m a delicate flower and don’t take sun well, but give me a burn on a boat any day.
Who is your favorite local artist?
Haig Demarjian. His creations fascinate and scare me. His giant “Phantom” is looking at me right now.
Which is your favorite local beach?
Good Harbor. Egg salad sandwiches and Lik-A-Maids from the snack bar make some of my favorite childhood memories.
Who has the best chowder in town?
Last Stop. One of the things I miss most about showing movies in East Gloucester.
Excluding GMG what is your second favorite local blog?
Kenny MacCarthy’s
Do you prefer haddock chowder or clam chowder?
Clam chowder, no question about it (and do I even need to say “not Manhattan“?)
What were your thoughts on The Downtown Block Parties last year?
Extremely well organized, and I look forward to seeing them grow.
What is your favorite local band?
What Time Is It, Mr. Fox? Their debut album is a work of friggin’ aht.
