The Grand Budapest Hotel

Musicbox Theatre
Last weekend, Josh and I stood in line (okay, just Josh) for the chance to get into a free early screening of Wes Anderson’s new movie, The Grand Budapest Hotel. Tickets were free, it was an early release of the movie (it won’t hit most movie theaters in Chicago until next weekend), and there was a Q&A session with Mr. Anderson himself (think: The Royal Tenenbaums) so the line was l.o.n.g.

Josh toughed it out in the cold for over two hours, I was in it for about thirty minutes. Woops. But in the end we were lucky and got seats. I wasn’t sure how I felt about the movie at first, but as it played on, it totally grew on me and I definitely recommend it! It was also my first time at the Music Box Theatre, and I can’t wait to go back. It’s one of those old-timey places that reminds me of The Tivoli, where we used to go way back in the day growing up.

Christmas traditions


Christmas is a sneaky little holiday and I can’t believe it’s less than two weeks away. This is a slight problem because I realized I haven’t done anything very festive yet. One thing I do each year though is watch the movie Prancer. With Sam Elliot (aka the voice of “Beef, it’s what’s for dinner”) and a real live Prancer set in the 1980s it’s hard to beat.
