Movie Theater


My husband and I went to see Gran Turino this weekend. It's a really good movie, if you get a chance to see it - GO!

We went to the metro's newest multiplex - Malco Grandview. They have tried to give the lobby an Italian feel. Although it's nothing like being in Italy, it is nice. They have a fountain in the middle, a refreshment stand and lots of comfy chairs to lounge in if you have to wait until your show starts. We have never seen the place so busy, but we generally go to the matinee showing. The queue for tickets was out the door so we didn't have time to relax. We made a beeline for our theater. Luckily, we only missed a few of the advertisements!

beaucoup de cinémas, maintenant, ont des cafés et des superbes fauteuils pour faire patienter, mais attention de ne pas oublier l'heure du film.
Un film de et avec Clint Eastwood, cela doit etre bien (il est pas encore sorti en France, en Février)

THE MALCO!!!! The only movie theatre I will attempt to visit! Escpecially after all the bad times at Tinseltown in Pearl!

I agree that the movie is quite good! There have been a number of good ones lately, but our favorite has been The Reader. I really miss the small neighborhood theatres. Despite the fact that the graduated seating makes for better viewing, I still intensely dislike the large mega-theatres.

I envy you those big chairs!

You also have advertisements in movie houses? And I thought it was only here. Sigh. I remember a time when you went to cinemas to escape ads! I do enjoy the trailers though.
