Dark Knight


Let me tell you a little story. First, my day job at Indigo Ink Digital Printing is nuts because we print a lot of stuff for people that will be going to the SDCC. I've worked a few 12+ hour days in the past week. Wednesday my plan was to leave at a regular time to spend some time with my wife and little girl. However, on the way home, my wife calls me, " My friend has a friend that has some free passes to see that Batman movie tonight, do you want them?" Huh?! "Where's it playing?" I say. "It's down in D.C. at the Uptown at 8:30." What?! My favorite movie theatre on the face of the earth?!


This place is a beautifully restored theatre from the 30's with a huge curved screen and a sweet balcony! Anyway, now I'm going to see Batman (my favorite superguy), at the Uptown (my favorite theatre), and for FREE (my favorite price!)! So we plan to get down there an hour and a half early so we can sit together. I'm all geeking with the butterflies in my belly, I've heard this thing is an awesome crime drama, an interpretation of Batman that I enjoy. We arrive to a line wrapped around the block! We hop in line, I'm all excited, an hour goes by, and some spokesmodels come out and let us know the theatre is full and we should shove off. Yeah, that was one sad walk back to the car and an hour drive home.

That's where the sad story ends, I got to see the movie last night. 3 hours well spent friends!! If you haven't seen it yet, get to it! It made me feel like this!

I'm sure you've all seen it but I don't want to spoil anything so we can talk about it more later.

I just saw The Dark Knight yesterday at the uptown as well (yah uptown) However it was at 3:30 in the afternoon. So it was a bit hot and parking sucked. But what a great movie and a great Batman. I wonder who else will be in the next one.
