This post is simply exactly what the title states. I love movies. LOVE them. I have some friends that find it boring, or don’t like crowds, or could care less about watching it on the big screen. I will admit, there are drawbacks to watching a movie when it first comes to the big screen. My main complaint would be other people who come to talk, not watch. It can ruin a movie going experience, but not enough for me to hate going. I’m not sure why I feel so strongly about it, but I did work at a movie theater for a time. I know the ins and outs (at least of the specific one I worked at), and it can be such a fun place to work. Besides..FREE MOVIES! (Again where I worked specifically) With the pricing the way it is now, who wouldn’t want that perk. Am I right?
As much as I find that Tampa can be a bit boring, we do have what is pictured above. The Tampa Theatre. I haven’t gone as much as I would like to, but I am making up for lost time. It is hands down one of the most architecturally stunning buildings I’ve ever seen. It has such an old world charm to it. Get this, there is even an organ player before your showing begins.
How cool is that? I mean, seriously.
Recently, I went to see the original Scream film there. It was amazing. It was so weird being back in theaters to watch that movie again. However, it brought back such great memories. Being a teenager and actually sneaking into the first one. The thrill of it all. :)
Do any of you have really epic movie theaters you can go to? Do you even enjoy going to the movies?
I will also add that I am no genre snob, either. I will watch anything. In fact, I just saw Dracula: Untold. It was such a great film. The cinematography, the actors, the affects. All of it was gold. Watching any genre has its perks, especially since I have a few friends who are genre specific ;) Any of you willing to give any genre a shot?
So that’s it folks. I love movies. Period. The end. I may spend too much time entertaining myself that way, but that’s okay…isn’t it?
I know i’m full of questions, but that’s how you build friendships! I dig it.
