Can I just tell you how awesome that was?
The Varsity theater in Chapel Hill has been reopened as a mixture of a revival and cheap old-new movie theater. This weekend I saw Casablanca with bud Katie.
It was pretty damn awesome. Though not especially in a “This is so cool, it’s really big for once and not on Turner Classic Movies” kind of a way. It was just fun to watch in a crowd. While it is nice to have the experience of seeing something so classic on the big screen, what was really awesome was laughing along during the funny moments or else grumbling with the rest of the audience during those moments.
It looked like in the row in front of us, parents were taking their kid with them for her first time watching this movie too, which is the coolest thing ever, let me tell you.
This weekend they’re going to start showing Pulp Fiction for the rest of January and I am already gathering a group for seeing that. Is it weird that I haven’t seen that as anything other than the cut-for-TV version?
