Latest Review : Le Circle Rouge (1970)




I didn't count or keep a record, but probably about 70 movies in a theater. I have several theaters that are close to good food venues, so, "dinner and a movie" is a nice night out, in a busy part of town. One is next to a food hall that also has music on Friday and Saturday, so it's dinner, music and a movie, a nice combination. It's one of the good things about life in the city.



Just 8 times:

The Boogeyman
The Holdovers
Killers of the Flower Moon
Mission: Impossible - Dead Reckoning Part One
Napoleon
Oppenheimer
The Super Mario Bros Movie
Transformers: Rise of the Beasts

I hope to do better next year.

I only went six times and all of them were "classics".

Dracula '31
Dracula's Daughter '36
Wow....saw those in a theater? Was it a vintage horror festival?

There's a 100+ year old theater in town that shows a classic film every Sunday morning. Dracula's Daughter screened in October. Dracula was shown back in the spring when Cage's Renfield was released



Also answers to Jabba
15 in total for now. I try to go on festivals, special events and when films I would ordinarily have a hard time finding online are playing. On occasion I will also catch one of the bigger shows, but usually only if I am going with a larger group.

That's one of the best reasons to watch a movie at home. I'll add being able to control the volume so that my ear drums don't rupture

Good point. I hate loud dialog & loud music.

How was Caligula?



The trick is not minding
Just once, to see Lynch/Oz---and it wasn't that director's best!
You saw this in theaters? Lucky! I think this popped up very briefly and vanished in my area.



I forgot the opening line.
How was Caligula?
It was good - or at least, I enjoyed it. I wrote about it here. A completely different film to the one we've had since 1979, and a marked improvement - edited together with the original screenplay as a template, it actually makes more narrative sense and you can see it's themes much more clearly. It's not the greatest epic ever made, but it feels much more complete and sensible.
