BEGINNERS, Doggie-Style
We're testing out a Saturday afternoon movie slot where you can bring your well-behaved dog to the theater.  We'll open up the hall a bit earlier than normal, allow time for some doggie meet-and-greets, and then show a wonderful movie, Beginners, that has a delightful dog in it, but is not a dog movie (or a dog of a movie).  We need to have at least 40 advance ticket purchases to hold the event, since there is a lot of logistics in getting the theater ready and cleaning it properly afterwards.  But I think that it will be a lot of fun and, if it's successful, maybe it can be a regular thing.

Now about Beginners, one of my favorite movies of 2010: Beginners imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Ewan McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Mélanie Laurent) only months after his father Hal (Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who - following 44 years of marriage - came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous gay life. The upheavals of Hal's new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they'd ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavors to love Anna with all the bravery, humor, and hope that his father taught him.
