Of all the gin joints…

This weekend has been movie-licious for me, and I thought I’d reccomend a few things I think you all should try out.

Friday night I saw “Casablanca” at the Orpheum in Memphis.  Wow — to see that beautiful classic on the big screen was breathtaking. I’ve seen the movie before but never in that way.  It really made me long for the old days where they actually told stories and the stars were truly stars (Humphrey Bogart, I’d like my heart back, please:)).
The Orpheum will show several other classic films this summer, including ‘The Godfather,” “The Rocky Horror Picture Show,” “Caddyshack,” “Gone with the Wind, “The Wizard of Oz” and others. Tickets are only $6.
Treat yourself to a movie at the Orpheum this summer. It’s really a magical time.

Maybe Netflix has had this for a while now, but I’m just now picking up on it — its “Watch Now” feature.  If you’re a Netflix subscriber, you can instantly watch movies on your PC as a part of your subscription.  However much you’re paying a month is how many hours you have to watch TV shows and movies right on your computer (for example, if you have the $17.99 plan, you get 18 hours of instant watching). It doesn’t cost any extra at all.
I just watched “Singin’ in the Rain” for the first time. I love musicals, so this was just perfect for me. And, wow, Gene Kelly has got to be more talented than just about any actor working today.
Anyway, it’s really awesome to just decide to watch a movie, and ka-boom, there it is on your computer — you don’t even have to worry about shipping or going to the video shop.

So, there you have it — my reccomendations for this week. Hope this helps the next time you want to see a good movie.
