Theater (or theatre) Thursday

The movies are starting back up here in Orange County with the OC Film Society…of which I’ve been a member for over 4 years. I joined when I lived at the beach because it’s a perfect solo activity to do (please tell me you don’t talk in the theater!!) and it’s just a fun escape to go to the movies. I love getting that “screening” invitation email before it’s released in theaters…many Sundance favorites & Oscar contenders. So here’s what I’ve seen lately (not all with OCFS)…and one on Netflix!
Mama Mia…It’s a fun, entertaining movie! I just wanna be on a Greek Isle dancing down near the water with a bunch of friends! I should have tried to be an extra in that movie…LOL!
The Wife…thought provoking and one of those movies that would be so interesting to discuss afterwards….the downside of theater-going alone. Glenn Close and Jonathan Pryce were great.
Juliet, Naked…Stupid title…but it does relate to the movie! Nothing earth shattering, just a cute story worth seeing, with lovely performances by Rose Byrne and Ethan Hawke.
Last tango in Halifax (Netflix)…my friend, Suzanne, who is from Liverpool, recommended and I’m hooked. The scenery makes you long for the English countryside and the characters are charming. The first episode is a little slow, with character development, but stick with it, I think you’ll enjoy. Suzanne said she felt like she lost some friends when it was over!
Have a great weekend…Thursday is the new Friday!!

You cannot direct the wind, but you can adjust the sails!


  1. Thanks for these great recommendations! Mama Mia was great fun! Saw it with a couple of girlfriends. Love, love, love Last Tango in Halifax! Like being in the middle of family for sure!!! If you haven’t seen it, I’ll add these to my list. If you haven’t seen it already, I highly recommend “The Guernsey Literary Potato Peel Pie Society” on Netflix… A wonderfully cast period World War II drama… we fell in love with all the people, hated for it to end

    1. Thanks Jeri! We read that book in my book club and loved it! Didn’t even know it was on Netflix….can’t wait to watch! Oh…and by the way, loved meeting and visiting with Todd and his wife…nice, adorable and loved Zoey!
