Daily Movie-Fest Info

Why can't there be a summer outdoor movie fest with Groundhog Day, Rushmore, Blues Brothers, Kill Bill, Airplane!, Shaun of the Dead, The Warriors, and Planes, Trains and Automobiles?

What? There is? And it's in my city?? Sweeeeet. (Also Rocky II, but I didn't want to say that one specifically in the fake question above, as it might tip it off...)

Of course, for me, it's all about the atmosphere, and you can't beat being in the middle of Manhattan with literally thousands for an outdoor movie, but the lineup alone has me excited for our little local deal. Even though it's on concrete. It is kind of eerie just how Jere-fied that schedule is. Thanks to Kim and Amber for separately informing me of this, coincidentally within a half-hour, and in one case, coincidentally on the same day I found out the Bryant Park sked.

Red Sox play at 1:35 today. Yanks also play in the day, then in the night. Would be nice to gain a game and a half. But I'm mainly thinkin' about us just continuing to get back on prov. track for now. Then we get to the top. Then we pull away.

Yanks lose in about 2 hours and 15 mins. We're in danger of a similar fate, down 3-0 in the 8th.
Great movie lineup, but DO NOT GO TO SLEEP on The Maltese Falcon or The Hudsucker Proxy either. Saw Hudsucker on a date long, long before I met Mrs. AJM....liked the flick, the date not so much. "you know...for kids".

Hell, even Total Recall is a hoot on the big screen. "See you at the pah-ty Richter!!!"
Wait is Total Recall the Mars one? I did like that one. And there are two more movies at the end that aren't on that sked for some reason--Bonnie & Clyde (also at Bryant Park) and the Outsiders, last two weeks of Sept.

And Usual Suspects is good too. And Goonies, though I'm not as into is as many in my gen.
