Double Features and Marathons are my two favorite kinds of movies. I’m writing this ahead of time but I’m sure that I had a blast at the Avengers Double Feature.
Cinemark and Celebration! are both running a Pitch Perfect double feature on Thursday 5/14. It is not unlikely that Regal and AMC will follow suit. Unfortunately there is no Mad Max marathon for Mad Max Fury Road which also starts 5/14.
I am also hopeful of a Jurassic Park marathon with the new feature. Currently the only option is May 9th, the Academy of Natural Sciences is showing the first three movies on the big screen (but not the new one) at Drexel University in Philadelphia, Pa.
There are still some other possibilities this summer. I’d love (and even travel for) a Terminator marathon in front of the new feature. A Despicable Me marathon (1, 2, and Minions) would be great for my granddaughter and I. Perhaps a Magic Mike double feature to please the ladies. Oooh, how about a new and old Poltergeist? That last is exceptionally unlikely as the studios hate showing the original with the reboot (so much so that when our local cinema tried to book the original Carrie, they actually refused.). Other options include a Ted double feature and an Insidious marathon.
Speaking of double features, the Sunset Drive-In in Shelby, NC has opened for the season. This weekend (Friday and Saturday) they will be playing Avengers: Age of Ultron and Cinderella for only $12 a carload. I’m waiting for my granddaughter to be a little older before taking her but you should definitely go see a Drive-In movie if and when you can.
I am proud that both of my daughters have memories of the Waynesville Drive-In before it shut down a decade or so ago.
