    Cinema Unforgettable

    Hubby and I finally went to a movie theater again after 13 years. During this time we have watched movies in the comfort of our living room via TV, VHS and DVDs. To actually sit in front of a huge screen with huge speakers, on a folding comfy seet with cup holders, in a large air-condiitioned room, was a nostalgic and pleasant experience. There were several "coming attractions" before the feature and the price of popcorn and soda was high. But, we were entertained. The movie we saw was "Twilight/ The Eclipse". Most memorable for us were the big wolves. The love story is a bit drawn out.

    In this thread, we will share some movies we have seen, past and present, which were unforgettable for us and why.

    I found this link which may include some pictures you have seen:

    'Last Year at Marienbad' - Top 10 Movies That Mess with Your Mind - TIME

    Is there a movie that you have seen that left you muttering, "What the...........?"

    Imagine going to the movies twice in the same day.........at two different theaters.

    The year was 1971. It was a hot summer day in Savannah, Georgia. What better way to beat the heat than to catch two of the most popular films of the year........"The French Connection" and "Dirty Harry"? Both crime, action, tough-guy films.

    Wow........the adrenoline was pumping after that afternoon was over I can tell you.

    What a coincidence, Wifey and i went to the Premier showing of the new Karate Kid film last weekend. First time at the cinema for for us in about 10 years.
    Probably because it was a free invitation.
    Really good film, Jackie Chan and the young Smith boy were excellent.
    The film was funny and moving, we would recommend it anytime.
    The seats were a lot larger and comfier than i remember them.
    Cant wait for my next free invite.

    Those were the days!

    Awesome movies they were!

    I've only been a few times to the theater, just to expensive and as you said, the popcorn and pop is unreasonably priced.

    Tis nicer in the comfort of your own home, 'pausing' is a must for me!

    I loved Titanic in IMAX, it left me in tears.

    and in 3D IMAX, Avator, woah, kinda scary at times

    I was a teenager. My girlfriend from art class, Louise, and I wanted to see this movie so much. The theatre was crowded so we had to take a seat up front. Right up front close to the movei screen. The movie was Doctor Zhivago. A flim with romance and also big epic scenes. We both enjoyed the movie............but gosh...........we were right up front with the action.

    I remember going to see 'Moonstruck' with three of my friends one afternoon. I remember saying to one of them that if that guy were in my world, I'd be knocking the snot out of him....

    then this happened
    YouTube - Moonstruck - Snap out of it!!!

    almost wet myself
    I expressly forbid the use of any of my posts anywhere outside of FG (with the exception of the incredibly witty 'get a room already' )posted recently.
    Folks who'd like to copy my intellectual work should expect to pay me for it.
