Adventures in Movie Going

For the last two days, I tried to see one movie but ended up seeing another.  On Tuesdays, the AMC Bay Terrace theaters offer all movies for $5.00.  The only film over there that was aimed at an older audience is Book Club with Jane Fonda and Diane Keaton.  When I arrived at the theater there were about 10 seniors on the line.  When it was my turn, the seller said that there were only seats in the first row.  Since I didn't want to sit so close to the screen, I decided to drive back home and check the College Point Multiplex.  I found a film called Overboard which seemed a little silly after I viewed the trailer.  It wasn't the worst movie that I ever saw, but I found out that it was a remake of a movie with the same name in 1987 starring Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn.

Early this morning I had to take Lee to the doctor for a routine checkup.  Everything is OK.  I got home at 11 AM and thought that I had plenty of time to get to the Angelika Film Center in Greenwich Village to catch the 12:25 showing of On Chesil Beach.  The #7 train was somewhat slow (what else is new) so I knew I couldn't get there in time.  I decided to stop at the IFC Center where there was a 12:45 showing of Let The Sunshine In, a French film with English subtitles.

Sooner or later I'll get to see Book Club and On Chesil Beach.
