Happy Fourth of July weekend! The weather is supposed to be awesome in the Boston area, and best of all, the weekend is L-O-N-G! First up for me this weekend is seeing Eclipse, which I am so beyond excited about! Not only am I seeing it with two of my best girlfriends, but we’re seeing it at a Showcase Cinema De Lux (their spelling, not mind)! Now, unlike Chunky’s, where I saw Sex and The City 2, Cinema De Lux is a separate seating area reserved for 21+ only. Similar to Chunky’s, you can order food and drinks brought right to your seat at the push of a button—AMAZING! Another De Lux perk is that you can choose your seats (which are big and leather and super comfy) when you purchase a ticket online or in the theater. For the last 2 Twilight movies, my friend Annemarie and I were able to avoid the screaming teenyboppers rush for seats and sip on martinis while watching; I mean, what’s better than that? This is probably my favorite thing about seeing movies here; especially for new pictures that are likely to sell out, you don’t have to worry about not getting a seat, or getting a bad seat (front row, anyone?). And today, Annemarie and I are introducing Ashley to the De Lux lifestyle too!
After the excitement that is Eclipse, I have a post almost ready to go up about The Hurt Locker, the 2009 Best Picture Winner. Did you know that The Hurt Locker is the lowest grossing Best Picture Oscar winner, adjusted for inflation (with a box office take of $14 million) according to IMDB. Me neither!
See you after the long weekend! Be safe =)
