A Totally Awesome Thing!

Who ya gonna call?Northern VA is getting an Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. This is a restaurant-with-a-movie place, that shows first runs and all the usual fare, but also makes a point of showing quirky movies, having fun social events (such as "Sing Along Night" or "Heckle Vision"), and generally being a place for movie lovers first. They are also famous for their "Zero Tolerance" policy on talking and texting during the movie. Other places may "ask you as a courtesy" to shut up and power down-- Alamo will kick your ass out. They've made the news for it.

Next week they'll be having "training week," during which they'll be showing (among other things) Ghostbusters at $2 a pop. I am planning to go Tuesday night for the 7:40 showing. This will be the first time I've seen Ghostbusters on the big screen, so I'm very excited about it. Anyone and everyone in the area is invited to come see it with me! You need to buy your tickets online, here's the webpage for the event:

They're also going to be showing Ghostbusters every Thursday until Halloween-- I expect I'll be going back more than once.
