It's Saturday: Lets All Go To The Movies!!!

OK, OK... you made it through another week. And even though the weekend starts at 5 pm on Friday, most of us really don't start to enjoy our weekend until Saturday morning. Waking up and not having to go to the hell hole of a job that you occupy during the week is a relief of epic proportions. You can do whatever you want, and usually for me that involves wanting to hit up a movie theater at some point. The reasons why its a great idea to go to the movies are endless, but one reason I like it is that its a short term event (like 2,3 hours tops) that you can fit in anytime during a busy weekend. We all know whats playing at the Multiplex... everyday we are bombarded with ad's for movies in the newspaper, on the train, and on the radio. My then 3 year old son used to ask me what the date was, and when I would tell him, he would then immediately shout out the big movie that was opening that week. But in most cities across the US, there are alternative/boutique type theaters that show mostly independent and revival films. The independents are cool, but the revival films are the best. What better way to relive your childhood then seeing "Gremlins" on the big scree en after 20 years. Or maybe getting a chance to see something at the movies that you weren't around to see during it's original run. Either way it's a great activity for day or night. Here was going on in movies this week. Enjoy the fresh popcorn !!!

Pick of the Week:

Coming To America - Eddie Murphy, Arsenio Hall, James Earl Jones, Directed by John Landis

This 1988 classic comedy is one of the FUNNIEST MOVIES EVER MADE. I have never met anyone who has told me they ddn't love this movie. Murphy plays a Prince Hakeem from the land of Zamunda, and Hall plays his trusty sidekick Semi. They travel to NY to find a worthy bride for Hakeem... and what better place to start then Queens??? Murphy and Hall play like 40 characters in diferent costumes, one better then the next. Highlight of the movie was definetly the bar sequence when they are interviewing prospective women for Hakeem. Absolutely hysterical. You will love this movie on the big screen, if you can hear it over all the laughter in the theater.

Midnight show @ Landmark Sunshine Cinema 212-330-8182

Enjoy the Popcorn and Candy... have a great day!!!
