I've fallen in love with a local moviehouse! The Criterion Cinemas at Movieland in the bustling Scott's Addition neighborhood of Richmond, provides the coziest movie-watching experience, short of your own home! Just across the parking lot from its larger sister cinema, Bow Tie Cinemas at Movieland, which features most of the mainstream films, Criterion showcases four primarily independent and foreign films at a time, in small, comfy viewing areas.
As soon as you walk in, just mere steps away from the door is the concession stand with all kinds of movie goodies! The popcorn smelled wonderful!
Recently we went to see The Wife, based upon the short 2003 novel by Meg Wolitzer. Glenn Close should finally get that Oscar we've all been waiting for her to receive. I read the book several years ago and I wondered just how they would handle the spectacular twist of the story and boy, did they!
My thoughts on the book are here as posted on Goodreads, some time ago. No spoilers there at all!!!
Unfortunately, The Wife has left, so it will be on DVD or streaming on your favorite site soon. Be sure to check it out. In the meantime, if you're a fan of independent and foreign films, stop by Criterion Cinemas at Movieland for a lovely time. Right now, Tea with the Dames starring Dame Judi Dench, Dame Maggie Smith, Dame Joan Plowright, and Dame Eileen Atkins is showing, along with Colette with Keira Knightly. The already-acclaimed period piece, Can You Forgive Me? with Melissa McCarthy will be featured there later this year.
