Pre-pandemic I think my last movie in theaters was Ford vs Ferrari, and it was a wonderful movie. Prior that I had a group of coworkers that would occasionally go to movies together, and were jokingly referred to as “movie club”. I finally got back in a movie theater last weekend, and it was wonderful.
Jeff and I went to Cruella at the New Hope Cinema Grill. I had been to that theater once back in 2010, and not much has changed there. They don’t have movie theater seats as they have tables and serve a full menu. The seating isn’t as comfy, but the movie tickets were $4 per person, which is definitely appealing.
Cruella was an amazing movie, I highly recommend seeing it whether on Disney+ or at a movie theater. Although there was a sad preview before the moving talking about how movie theaters have struggled during covid. So if you can go to an independent theater, definitely give it a go.
It is so fun to think that they developed stories around characters we have seen before, but not in that light. I love the creativity and the ending makes me think that maybe there could be a Cruella 2, and I’d probably see that in theaters as well, because the music was great, and there was some cinematography that I think benefited from the big screen.
What was the last movie you saw in a theater? Do you prefer to go to the movies? Or do you like being able to stream from home?
