This past weekend the old Angelika movie theater downtown reopened as a Sundance Cinema. We (including all of my friends) are especially happy about this because the theater is closer, doesn't get the throngs of masses and shows many independent as well as mainstream movies. Our first viewing there was My Week with Marilyn, which was a simply charming movie and Michelle Williams definitely deserves an Oscar nod for her performance.

On the flip side, I saw Breaking Dawn last night, which was melodramatic and completely cheesy. I had a good laugh and was entertained, I will give it that.

The other movies we watched over the weekend were The Descendants (Clooney was great; another good one), Midnight Cowboy (we like to watch old Oscar winners and this one was definitely interesting; can't believe it was rated X when it first opened!), and Soul Plane (this would have been much better with some chemical enhancement, but it was worth the $0.53 rental!). You know you are getting old when your primary form of entertainment is the movies! In our defense, the end of the year is usually about the time most of the movies worth seeing are released; we always try to catch the movies and actors up for Oscars before the awards the next year.

This photo makes me smile because I am laughing at something the hubs has said. Posing with the vintage Corvette was my idea but I am not quite the pin up girl.

Cute photos, especially the last one :) You are so lucky to see so many movies! The last two movies I went to see were Puss in Boots and Justin Bieber. Not my idea of adult entertainment, lol! Heather

Cute outfit. Love the trench!!!
I'm like you, I don't care for the Twilight Saga but my daughter LOVES them. Maybe they are geared more toward the youth!!

Lovely pics. I took my youngest two to see Breaking Dawn - not as good as Eclipse but the kids loved it.

I love the skirt layered under that dress! Looove it. Hooray for a movie weekend. We saw Hugo and I rewatched Xmen first class.

Also I love your posing with the Corvette. 'Scuse me while I drool over the car for awhile.
