Movie Theaters

Movie theater seats with popcornFor me, the holidays are a time to see a show in a movie theater. Netflix and On Demand etc. are great, but leaving the house to go to a theater is a treat. This year, we saw the Imitation Game and Big Eyes. We might go to a couple more movies before 2015.

Benedict Cumberbatch played Alan Turing, the scientist who cracked Nazi Germany’s Enigma code that helped the allies win the second World War.

The outstanding performance by Cumberbatch is worth a nomination for an Academy Award. Keira Knightley, one of my favorite actresses, was very good as usual.

What movies did you see in a theater this holiday season?

    I’ve seen The Hobbit with another fan, the Hungery Games with my daughter yesterday and I can say they were very intense and great. The details of each movie gave me great insight into the writers ability to let their imagination fly to unknown places most of us haven’t experienced yet. Possibilities of unimaginable depths!
    I love the song, “Go fly with me….” Here’s to taking flight to that part of our mind unknown, imagination.
