BILL CRIDER'S POP CULTURE MAGAZINE
Although all of these are true, I have never seen a movie at home that wasn't ten times better on a big screen with the smell of popcorn in the air.
That list is spot-on, for a lot of theaters, but there is one theater that gives an experience that is way better than staying home.One of my favorite theaters is the Loews Jersey City. It is a movie palace from 1929 that still looks largely the same. It has a 50 ft screen, and a lighted organ that comes out of the ground. They show old movies one weekend a month, and the cost of admission is only $7 for one movie, and double features are usually $12. Popcorn, candy and soda are $1.When I went to see a pristine 35mm print of CAPE FEAR, the whole evening cost me $12.50. $7 for the ticket, $3.50 for the train ticket to Jersey, and $2 for popcorn and soda. That's less than a lot of movies cost in Manhattan.http://www.loewsjersey.org/alt/
(And if you're wondering, I wasn't paid for that endorsement.)
I'd go every week!
Other than the rude imbeciles, I can live with the rest of that.WV: hinted. Dang, someone help me with this one. Just a clue...
