Toledo Talk

Interesting shows while searching Rave Cinemas (and Valentine)

I just noticed a few shows that will be playing at Rave Theaters in the area and thought I would share this as I was not aware they played shows like these.

The first is a Doors concert from 1968 they are playing tomorrow night only at the Rave Theater at the Westfield Mall at 7pm. It features the entire concert in HD, 5.1 surround sound. I had snippets of this concert on VHS back in the late 80's and really enjoyed it.

Another interesting thing I see they are playing is Pulp Fiction for one night only on December 6th. This would be really interesting to see on the big screen as opposed to at home on DVD.

and don't forget, Friday nights at the Valentine they have Silver Screen Classics starting in Mid December featuring:
It's a Wonderful Life, Gone With The Wind, Citizen Kane, The Godfather and more........

It's good to see Rave mix it up a bit, as I find myself going to the movies less often nowadays. It will be fun to see both of these Tarantino movies on the big screen!

Saturday features all 3 Lord of the Rings movies for $25. But who can bear sitting in a theatre for 13 hours?

And parking costs?

Considering all the movies are after 5:00 pm, parking is free downtown.

One caveat to the Valentine Theater series: I have attended a number of these screenings, and the video quality in all three was at best subpar. If you are a film aficionado and want crisp imagery, you may be disappointed.

The last one I went to was The Sting, and it looked like a copy of a copy of a copy of a VHS.

You’ll get the answer to that question, Mr. Bender, next Saturday.

Unofrtunately I will miss one of my favorite movies, The Breakfast Club, due to timing, but I will definitely be checking out The Colour Purple next month, I've always wanted to see that in a theatre.

"programme"
"colour"

Canadian much?

No, Welsh. I usually check myself when using Oxford English on the net but it sometimes slips out. I use only Oxford English in every other aspect of my life and it just seems the correct way to spell things. At least I don't have an accent any more so I blend in with the more bland American accent.

I paid $5 to park in the lot opposite the north or west entrance to the Valentine Theatre.

My wife and I had a blast. I enjoyed the old Looney Tunes cartoons before the movie. An ax-wielding Porky Pig. So politically incorrect today. Fantastic.

We could take our adult beverages into the theatre. A large gin and tonic and popcorn. Not too shabby.

Even though the Breakfast Club is a relatively short movie, the theatre still had an intermission, which was timely. Another gin and tonic and more popcorn.

A seemlingly good-sized crowd attended. It was all ages from grade school age to retirement age.

It has been so long since I last saw that movie that I had forgotten how great it was. It's funny.

Some of the crowd quoted the Judd Nelson (Bender) lines during the movie, and everyone sang the Simple Minds song at the end.

That may have been the most fun that I have ever had at a movie theatre, from a legal perspective.

Afterwards, we went to the Ottawa Tavern, which was hoppin'. Got some food from the food truck in the parking lot and Bell's beer inside.

Wow. That sounds like an awesome time., I really wish my schedule would have allowed for it. Did people dress up like they used to or was it fully an informal affair?

I can't wait till next months, I love the Colour Purple and have only ever seen it onn vhs.

"Did people dress up like they used to or was it fully an informal affair?"

You can dress however you want. Some were spiffed up. Others like me dressed casually.

And some dressed like the characters in the movie.

Bender attended last night. Outside after the movie, people were getting their photos taken with him.

Oh my God I'm so jealous. I REALLY wish I could have gone to that!
