History of the Opera House Part 55: The Forepaugh-Sells Circus steals the show

The history of the Forepaugh-Sells Circus in Cheboygan intersects with the history of the Opera House. In 1888, town leaders couldn’t fathom Cheboygan, with a county population under 10,000, supporting a circus that size. A small circus came to Cheboygan to everyone’s delight. The Cheboygan Democrat wrote, “The circus itself was all it claimed to be and satisfied everybody not foolish enough to expect a Barnum or Forepaugh in a small town.”

‘F9’ Tops All VOD Charts While Paramount Slashes ‘A Quiet Place Part II’ Price to $4.99

“F9” (Universal/$19.99) is #1 on all four VOD charts we follow. It leads both on FandangoNow and Vudu, which list by rental revenue, and iTunes and Google Play, which rank by volume of renters. That suggests total dominance of home interest, but there’s a big caveat with “Jungle Cruise,” which opened #1 at the box office. It’s also available on Disney+ for $29.99 and the studio reported worldwide PVOD revenue of over $30 million for its first weekend. How much of that came from the U.S.is unclear, but the guess is most since VOD penetration is still lacking overseas.

The book is so old that it was written on papyrus, but is it the world's first novel?
