What Was Your All-Time Best Movie-Going Experience?
Posted on July 2, 2018 at 9:00 pm
Scott Derrickson asked people on Twitter to respond with their best movie-going experiences and the results are a lot of fun to read. Some are just the pleasure of discovering a great movie or a movie that feels great because it spoke to them in a personal way or at just the right moment. Many others are about sharing a movie with just the right person. The movies named include “Raising Arizona,” “The Sound of Music,” “Welcome to the Dollhouse,” “Harold and Maude,” “Gravity,” “The Blair Witch Project,” and “Interstellar.”
Walking out of the two day bar exam after law school into the bright sunlight and going to a theater a block away to see the first Star Wars movie. Liking it so much we sat through it twice. Also: a night of Laurel & Hardy, WC Fields, Keaton, Lloyd at a time I needed to laugh.
Needless to say, I was not the only one who mentioned Star Wars.
