Movie Night!

Everybody in America has/had a night that they called at one time before access was soooooooo easy to get, we would make it a very special time and we called it, MOVIE NIGHT, not that original, perhaps you too would take the kids out of the house to the drive-in or the theater, movie theater that is!
We did.
When our boys were young like most families made sure they were all together for Sunday dinner we would make sure Saturday night we would have dinner and a movie out, and they could, each son, invite a friend.
Those were the years of the best movies that George Lucas and Stephen Spielberg were producing one after another family oriented masterpieces for all ages and it was a BIG WOW! Many others too.

Time marches on, even then we had HBO, but going out to see them all was a nice way to spend an evening as a family then came rentals in-home.
Before streaming and gluttony of obsessive viewing one after another, VCR and DVDs even before Blue Ray, seeing a great movie in the olden days was something we all could enjoy.
But there was a time, way back when on any Saturday while I was a kid back in the 1950's and 1960's when you had someone drop you off or you took public transportation we too could watch movies one after another, only problem was it would be the same one!
Yep, theaters would have one incredible movie and play it again and again for usually many different crowds, although, some of us just wouldn't leave, ha!

Hubby as a teenager worked as a manager of the Fox theater in Hackensack NJ, and saw repeated many great movies, Sound of Music was one that he remembers most vividly and that he still enjoys. While that one I saw only once in the theater, but many times since when aired on regular TV.

Sure times change and in many ways we can be happy that they do, but some things stay the same, and that is good too.

For the last several years we have not been inside a movie theater for many reasons, back problems, needing too frequent bathroom breaks, unhealthy snack choices, the price, shootings etc.. Okay, poor
excuses and one low blow, since it only happened once in our state and we don't text anyway, oops but truly it is so much easier to have home delivery and reasonably priced too.
No one to walk in front of, or look for handicap locations etc. to see better or temperature control is up to us, as well as cleanliness!
Let's face it all you small screen streamers you do agree!

Tonight we are going to be watching Tomorrowland with George Clooney that had gotten mixed reviews, but we have watched others that had gotten really bad reviews, and found them to be horrible. So mixed is a maybe, maybe not too bad one, sometimes even movies can be subjective, nah, sounded good.
We are in that mode of get my attention and please entertain me, ha!
Sure it's all a pleasant distraction that we all look for, a respite from reality, true?
Maybe not you, but me these days...Movies take me away! Sorry Calgon:

That's for the kids who might not have a clue of what that means, ha.

On that note of we will let you know what we thought, not that it matters much, but you know me, allow me now to be the very first to wish all of you a very happy healthy safe and peaceful good night and ask you all to count all your blessings and share all those overages with you know whom and we will too!

And next time please be here or be square, ya hear!
