First Cinema Night of 2013!

It's 2013! We gather happily for our monthly night at the movies, joking about our resolutions and maybe some sincere hopes for the year ahead.

After dinner, we stroll up the street to that weathered old movie house so full of character and history....

First up is a fun little bon-bon from 1906, Segundo de Chomon's "Bob's Electric Theatre."

And then the feature presentation, a 1932 chiller, The Monster Walks.

Yeah, I admit it, the opening minutes are the best part. Still, it's an interesting relic of the time when apes and gorillas were still very mysterious and romantic, and a standard part of horror cinema.

As we leave the theater, the air has grown cold and we hastily make our way to the cafe up the street for our final libation...
