As I’ve mentioned before, J & I don’t frequent the movie theater. But we made plans to go Saturday and see Avatar in the IMAX theater. We figured that it may be a likely Oscar winner, which means we have to watch it eventually to complete our goal of watching all the Best Pictures, and it’d be better to see it on the big screen and as an IMAX flick.
What happened to the movie theater? When did it ever get so crowded? We got there about an hour before, not purposely. Yet, the movie was already sold out! The pubescent cashier said in an all-knowing voice, “well everyone buys their tickets online these days.” Wow, I didn’t get that memo. And what the heck? Hasn’t Avatar been in the theater for months now?
So, we didn’t get to see Avatar. It will be showing at the IMAX theater until March, so we’ll be going back and we learned our lesson. We will buy our tickets online …
We did see Shutter Island. Which is a really good psychological thriller that has you wondering until the end. I had dreams all night about it and even woke up around 3ish to ask J a question. I need to see it again!
