North By Northwest
We were a bit surprised how crowded the theater was; it's nice to NEPA has a good quantity of classic film buffs. The movie itself was wonderful; Mr. Grant's casual,classy wit is just so amazing to watch and hear. I just love his voice! The cinematography was pretty awesome as well, the exterior shots of the train, the shot from above the UN building. It was also such a nice experience seeing a classic movie in a theater with a good sized group. After all theses years, we all still laughed at the jokes, gasped a bit at the plane chase scene; I was NOT expecting an explosion! And when the credits rolled, we all clapped for a performance that stays incredible no matter how much time has passed. There's something unifying about the theater; you're all strangers, but you're sharing in a common experience.
