In less than a week, Dan and I will be welcoming filmmakers to our third annual Big Easy International Film Festival, so you’d think we’d be “movied out” – but, alas, no. A passion for movies is one of the many things that bind us. We both studied film in college, and together, we’ve happily stood in line for hours to see sneak previews of soon-to-be-released films, attended cinematic events like the Sundance Film Festival, and run three different film festivals of our own. We’ve even set up our own screening room in northern Michigan, complete with a surround-sound system, an enormous screen hanging from the ceiling, and two recliner armchairs.
So, it might come as no surprise that Friday is usually our movie night, and despite all we still have to do prior to the film fest next week, we’re headed out shortly for a triple feature – yes, you heard that right – a triple feature!! Yippee!! Tonight, we’re planning to see The Fourth Kind, The Box, and The Men Who Stare at Goats. No doubt, we’ll suffer tomorrow, but for now, who cares? On with the show!
So, what are your Friday night plans?
