Saturday Night at the Movies with Glenn Holland
Every weekend, we have some something special planned on WQLN PBS. It’s date night in your living room as WQLN’s Glenn Holland presents Saturday Night at the Movies. Each week we feature movies you do not want to miss… comedies, dramas, mysteries, musicals, and more! It is a mix of little-known films and some blockbusters too. And rest assured, they will all keep you on the edge of your seat.
