Movie Theaters

Movie theater seats with popcornFor me, the holidays are a time to see a show in a movie theater. Netflix and On Demand etc. are great, but leaving the house to go to a theater is a treat. This year, we saw the Imitation Game and Big Eyes. We might go to a couple more movies before 2015.

Benedict Cumberbatch played Alan Turing, the scientist who cracked Nazi Germany’s Enigma code that helped the allies win the second World War.

The outstanding performance by Cumberbatch is worth a nomination for an Academy Award. Keira Knightley, one of my favorite actresses, was very good as usual.

Benedict CumberbatchBig Eyes is about American artist, Margaret Keane, whose husband fraudulently claimed in the 1950’s and 1960’s to be the artist of Margaret’s children with the big eyes.  Big Eyes with artist close upI’m interested to read more about the facts. I’ll research the story tomorrow.

What movies did you see in a theater this holiday season?

For over twenty-five years, I've taught elementary grades, high school, and county special education classes. Now I am a field supervisor for teachers working toward their teaching credentials. I also teach writing classes in Dublin and Pleasanton, California. I have won 5 awards in short story contests, My stories are published in The California Writers Club Literary Review, and several anthologies including four times in Las Positas College collections. I have several book projects, but the two that have my immediate attention are HADA'S FOG, which is women's fiction, LILLI, a YA novel, and NORMAN IN THE PICTURE, a paranormal mystery. I have published an anthology WRITTEN ACROSS THE GENRES that includes writings from members of my writing classes and other writers. It's available on Amazon and Kindle.

One thought on “Movie Theaters”

  1. I’ve seen The Hobbit with another fan, the Hungery Games with my daughter yesterday and I can say they were very intense and great. The details of each movie gave me great insight into the writers ability to let their imagination fly to unknown places most of us haven’t experienced yet. Possibilities of unimaginable depths!
    I love the song, “Go fly with me….” Here’s to taking flight to that part of our mind unknown, imagination.
