Rainy Day Monday

Went to see one of Alfred Hitchcock's best-loved films last night at the always grand Palace Theatre. It was the perfect outing for a chilly, rainy autumn evening, even though I was feeling a bit under the weather myself.

The Palace's classic movie series makes me so happy -- it's just a hop & a skip away from my apartment, takes place during the colder, more dreary months when we're all looking for something (preferably cozy) to do, and best of all, it's like taking a step back in time - taking in a picture in its original glory, on a truly huge screen, surrounded by history. Such a far cry from today's dreaded multiplex experience - for $5!

They run clips like this before the film...

And they show the original trailers for upcoming features. Can't wait until November when they bring in one of my all-time favorites!
