One of the really cool things I like about New York is how many theaters show movies that haven’t been in the theaters in years. I know I’ve blogged before about going to “Moulin Rouge!” which was really cool. Then I found something even cooler. The Lowe’s on 34 St. (along with some other theaters in the country) show a free previously run movie on Thursdays. Each month is a different theme and February was Romance. This past Thursday was “Titanic”. Yeah, I know, the most ultimate chick flick, but to hold the guys in they:
A) Got Kate Winslet to get naked. 🙂
b) Show lots of people getting killed
I am fascinated by the history of Titanic and the things that conspired together that caused the “unsinkable ship” to sink. So I told Maggie I wanted to go see it again on the Big Screen, and she said “sure”.
The trick with these tickets is you have to register in advance, and then Lowe’s sends out a notice that the tickets are available and you have to be amongst the first to click a link they email you to get the tickets. Well, I got our tickets the second the link came through (it’s sometimes good to be connected to the Internet so much. 🙂 )
We had a great time, and I am always amazed at the amount of small detail you can get on the big screen as opposed to your home TV. And two weeks from now they are showing “Gangs of New York” as a part of their St. Patrick’s Day theme for March. I only saw that movie on DVD, so I think it would be really cool to see the gruesome detail the big screen would provide. Another movie I hope they eventually play is “Pulp Fiction” since I never saw that in the theater either.
