I moved from NYC to LA in October, 2003. And though I still think NYC is the greatest city in the world, I'm truly loving life here in the City of Angels. I'm a writer, reader, and occasional picture-taker.

Drinks and a Movie

I love the times when you get to sit in a movie theater and drink a beer or cocktail. It makes it all more civil (or more hilarious, if you are attending the Grindhouse Film Festival - but more on that later).

Well, the ArcLight in Hollywood has periodic "21+ Screenings" and in the month of April, they have a fun looking series. Figured I'd spread the word! Behold:

April is ArcLight's "SHARE THE EXPERIENCE" celebration, and as part of the fun we have scheduled a series of special Monday night "21+" screenings featuring some favorite "I watch them over and over" films picked by our ArcLight crew. Experience these films on the big screen while enjoying your favorite cocktail. Remember, "21+" screenings are exclusively for our guests age 21 and over. (Valid proof of age is required for addmittance.)

"Bill & Ted" are teenagers in San Dimas, California who are in danger of flunking out of high school. A guitar-playing guru named Rufus arrives from a future San Dimas to help them pass a vital history test, because their garage band holds the key to world peace and ultimate truth. However, they will not achieve this destiny if the duo fail the exam and Ted's authoritarian father carries out his threat to ship him to Oats Military Academy in Alaska. Rufus lends them a time machine disguised as a phone booth, which they use to meet—and "collect"—various historical figures: Napoleon Bonaparte, Socrates, Billy the Kid, Sigmund Freud, Beethoven, Genghis Khan, Joan of Arc, and Abraham Lincoln, to help them with their vital history presentation. Directed by Stephen Herek. Stars Keanu Reeves, Alex Winter, George Carlin.

A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The armies of the night number 100,000; they outnumber the police 5 to 1; and tonight they're after the Warriors-a street gang blamed unfairly for a rival gang leaders death. This contemporary action-adventure story takes place at night, underground, in the sub-culture of gang warfare that rages from Coney Island to Manhattan to the Bronx. Members of the Warriors fight for their lives, seek to survive in the urban jungle and learn the meaning of loyalty. Directed by Walter Hill. Stars Michael Beck, James Remar, Dorsey Wright, Brian Tyler, David Harris.

A thrill-a-minute adventure film. When brothers Mikey (Sean Astin) and Brand (Josh Brolin) learn that greedy developers are forcing their family to move, they and their friends decide to have one last, precious adventure together.

Directed by Richard Donner. Stars Sean Astin, Josh Brolin, Jeff Cohen, Corey Feldman.

This classic Monty Python comedy, directed by Pythons Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones, is a hilarious send-up of the grim circumstances of the Middle Ages as told through the story of King Arthur and framed by a modern-day murder investigation. When the mythical king of the Britons leads his knights on a quest for the Holy Grail, they face a wide array of horrors, including a persistent Black Knight, a three-headed giant, a cadre of shrubbery-challenged knights, the perilous Castle Anthrax, a killer rabbit, a house of virgins, and a handful of rude Frenchmen. Directed by Terry Gilliam, Terry Jones. Stars Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Eric Idle, Terry Jones, John Cleese.

The older I get, the less inane I think Bill and Ted are. Even bought the DVD for days when I misplace my sense of humor.
