Join me in figuring out "what now?"

Spent the Day Watching a Movie

on 25 November, 2014

Yes, that was correct, singular. Me and The Kid had wanted to see “Interstellar” at a theatre. We’ve not been in some time, in fact, I cannot put my finger on the last movie we saw in a theatre. I mean, after having Netflix, and Amazon Prime and Roku and HBO Go, in addition to cable television and a few hundred more channels to watch, why would we have to go to a theatre to see a movie?

This one, however, stood out. I hadn’t heard a lot about it, but enough to piqué my interest. And that The Kid wanted to go as well, just put the icing on the cake. So, last night we used the internet to find where the movie was playing close to us (10:00) and made plans to be at it the next day.


It was a long movie, but let me tell you, it was hard to tell. Every minute of the movie was thrilling and entertaining and important to the overall story. There was so much to the story, in fact, that watching it once was not enough. So, without much discussion, we opted to see it again. We went in to the theatre the first time at 10:30 and walked out from the second one about 5:30.

And let me tell you, if he suggested watching it again tomorrow, I would gladly take him again.

I won’t ruin any of the movie for you, just know it is well worth the cost to see it in the theatre. We learned as we left that it is also being shown in IMAX… I am not normally a betting woman, but I would say that odds are very good we will see it in IMAX as well.

But the best part of the day was having The Kid all to myself! I thank God every day that I was lucky to have him for my son. And let me tell you, he still tells me every day and many times each day, that he loves me.

Who knows a teenager that does that?
