#19 - Go to the Sunrise Theater

Last night, Jenn and I had the opportunity to go see a movie at the Sunrise Theater in downtown Southern Pines. We saw a great foreign film called Priceless with one of my favorite actresses, Audrey Tautou. Considering this was my first movie in a movie theater in a good two years, I was excited! We ended up getting to the theater a couple of minutes late, but just in time for some picture snappage:

By the time we made it into the theater, it was dark and the credits were rolling. So we didn't really have a chance to look around the theater or anything. Well, the movie is funny right away. So as soon as the first funny thing happens, we hear laughter on all sides of us. And I'm not trying to be ageist here, I'm really not, but you can just tell, we are in there with a bunch of old people. If you are reading this, and you consider yourself to be old, you have two choices. Number one, quit reading before I hurt your feelings, or number two, see what it is that makes you old. Okay, disclaimer over, back to the laughter. I don't really know how to describe this. Like, the guy in front of us just guffaws. That's the only word to describe it. But the lady behind us is laughing and going, "Oh my!" And then they're all there with their bridge and canasta buddies, nudging each other and laughing even harder.

Well then we get to this part of the movie and it's REALLY funny. I mean, you should see this movie. And everyone in the whole theater bursts out laughing. Only, when we all finish laughing, everyone else starts coughing up a lung! Cause I guess they all have emphysema! Jenn and I were laughing at everyone else laughing just as much as we laughed at the movie.

When the lights came on, and we stood up, everyone else was grabbing their walkers or canes, or just sitting around talking about the movie, cause that's what old people do. We were by far. by FAR. the youngest people in there. But it was so much fun!!

People laughed at our pictures but not one person offered to help us out:

I hope you all have some sense of humor, as this post is supposed to be fun and not cruel towards old people. I was just throwing in some stereotypes to mix it up a little bit. But they really did cough everytime they laughed.

Yes Amanda, I think I have figured out how to blog. I know you will be soooo proud!

Very interesting reading on your page.

Amanda said...

Renee, I am so proud of you for being so technological! Now you can read dad's blog!

Gail said...

What age actually makes you fit into the "OLD" catagory?

Gail said...

P.S. Is Renee going to start a blog? If she does, ask her to send me the address. Thanks.

Amanda said...

It sounds like she might! Boy Gail, you're gonna rack up on the blogs to read at work!!

Renee said...

I think I will adjust to blogging before I start a blog of my own. Besides, everyone else has a much more interesting life to blog about. I hardly have enough time to read, isn't that right Amanda!?!?!?!
