Saturday at the movies!

It's Saturday! Our gang gathers again, for an easy afternoon of browsing our favorite the used book store down the street, and that place around the corner that sells old LPs and used CDs, and the thrift shop nearby. Then it's a late lunch at the usual restaurant, and then time for a show at the usual old movie house!

First up is yet another early classic from George Melies, "The Devil in a Convent," made in 1899.

And now the main feature: the 1926 version of The Student of Prague, previously filmed in 1913.

(You can just keep clicking on the chapters to watch the whole thing; it's worth it.)

Afterward, we head to the usual cafe for coffee, brandy, or absinthe, and relaxed conversation. There's still plenty of time left in the day, and tons of possibilities await....
