December 14, 2008 by Joe · 4 Comments 

twilightnewdirectorI’ve just read from a couple places (Variety and The Brock and Roll Blog), that Chris Weitz has been tapped to direct New Moon.  For those of you who haven’t caught onto the Twilight bandwagon, New Moon is the second in a series of books written by Stephanie Meyer.  The basic plotline is that there are vampires among us, and the main character, Bella, falls in love with one of them, Edward.

How to tell if you’re the problem at the Movies

November 4, 2008 by Joe · Leave a Comment 

I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that most people don’t realize that they’re the one that’s causing a problem in a movie theatre.  You could always go by the saying “If everyone else around you is normal, then you’re the weird neighbor.”  Well, in the best interest of you and the people around you, here are some quick ways you can tell if you’re the problem: Read more

Cirque Du Soleil: Kooza

October 2, 2008 by Joe · 5 Comments 

I’m gonna move away from traditional movie theatres this evening to review a show I saw last week!  Cirque du Soleil’s traveling show Kooza was at the Bayside Expo Center in Boston (It still is actually).  Having never really been to a circus before, I didn’t know what to expect.  Glad to say that I was very surprised and pleased with the performance.

Is Hollywood running out of ideas?

September 10, 2008 by Joe · 3 Comments 

With the weak product that has been available recently, it’s given me a lot of time to think about things while I’m at work.  Today, for example, I was talking to another guy there about what would happen if Hollywood ran out of ideas for movies. Read more

Get Free Movie Tickets

September 6, 2008 by Joe · 1 Comment 

Hey everyone, just wanted to let you know of a promotion that’s going on now at American Eagle.  Saw a lot of people taking advantage of this last night so don’t miss out!

For a limited time, when you try on a pair of jeans at American Eagle, you get a free movie ticket, valid any time at any AMC Theatre.  If you buy a pair of jeans, you get two free movie tickets.  So guys, if you’re looking for a cheap date in these money stricken times… just head on over to AE with the girl of your choice (as long as she agrees, of course), try on a couple of pairs of jeans, and get some free movie tickets.  Who knows, you can even get a nice little dinner at the food court and save yourself a few bucks there… or splurge and spend the savings at Cheesecake Factory… I don’t know.

In any case, this is a great deal, won’t cost you anything (if you don’t buy the jeans), so hurry up and check it out!

Underpaid Baby Sitters

August 4, 2008 by Joe · 5 Comments 

Yes, I am using this to refer to myself and my staff. I spent the whole weekend - no joke - baby sitting kids that were more than half my age. I shouldn’t have to baby sit those kids. When I was that age, I was taking care of myself and working at the movie theatre! As you may have figured out, it’s because of Step Brothers, which is actually a pretty funny movie. However, the MPAA has decided that this movie not appropriate for kids under 17 unless they have “a parent or guardian, 21 years or older with them throughout the entire film”. Yes, I know that is a pretty strict policy, but I do have to enforce it. Read more
