My best friend and I went to see The Hundred-Foot Journey. Excellent movie and unexpectedly sweet. The story is great and the scenery, mostly in France, is awesome. For that last reason, it really should be seen on the big screen.

That's playing here now, and I so want to go see it! I can't tomorrow, but hope to Friday. I love going to the matinee during the week when most everyone is working and the kids are in school.

Enjoy, Cheryl. It's a great film.

On the rare occasion that I go to see a movie, my daughter and I go to the Tuesday matinee. It is senior citizen day. We both get in for half price.. Fifty years or older. She is 52.

Our theater is $10.25 general, and $8 for matinees, children, seniors, and military. I usually sneak a couple of water bottles in my purse, and buy a small popcorn.

We make it a point to eat before we go. The concession stand is outrageous!

That's why I bring my own water bottles. I don't like sodas and I'm not there for a meal, but I do love popcorn at the movie theater.

Tonight on TCM they are playing one of my favorite films. It's Shadow Of A Doubt, with Joseph Cotton. It's an Alfred Hitchcock film and its a real thriller with an excellent cast.

Cheryl, when I went to the movies yesterday I was in line for popcorn, and there was a man ahead of me. I saw him come in alone and he ordered popcorn, a hot dog, a Coke and a bag of candy. His senior movie ticket was $5.50 and his food was $17.50. Holy Cow!

BTW... I saw "Gone Girl". Both Steve and I read the book, but he didn't want to see it. All I'll say is it was as shocking as the book.
