I really enjoyed it. There were only 3 others in the theater besides me, which is always nice. I do want to go see The Martian next, that sounds like a good one.
I was wondering if the rest of the country does the same as here. Every Wednesday, both the movie and live stage theatres have senior discounts for the matinee. We also have a Saturday matinee discount for the stage .

Here it's $10.25 general admission, and $8 for matinee, seniors, children, and military. I much prefer the weekday matinee.

We saw Martian. I really do not understand why it is in first place in box office. And I generally love Science fiction. It was not bad, not at all, but definitely not worthy of first place in box office.

I haven't seen Burnt yet, but I can attest to the fact that a lot of what you see with Gordon Ramsey, specially on Hell's Kitchen, is pretty much what goes on in a normal restaurant kitchen. In our culinary school restaurant there was a lot of swearing, tossing others "under the bus" and the chef/instructors were Ramsey-like drones!

Such happy memories!

Kay was back over last night and so the three of us watched the Princess Diaries II (not as good as the original but still cute) and Saved, with Mandy Moore.

I think TB and I are going to try and see a matinee this week before he goes to work. If not, we will see it on the weekend. We have a deal, he will come with me to see Burnt if I go see the Martian with him!

Addie, our theaters here give senior discounts no matter the time or day of the week.

I'm just curious Charlie. Given what's being shown right now what other movie do you think should be in first place at the box office?
