I went to see Metropolis tonight. Since there’s no stadium seating inside the New Beverly Theater, and since this is a silent movie, I snagged a nice seat in the second row with a clear view of the screen. Then Mr. Tall and his friend, Mr. Giant Hairdo, sat down in front of me, so I had to move over a couple of seats.
Once the film was over, I picked up a calendar of showings for the rest of the month. Too late (meaning that I read the calendar while waiting in line at the Drive Thru of Taco Bell), I discovered that EVERY show at that theater is a double feature. I’d completely missed M, which was shown right after Metropolis.
Man. No one tells me anything.
