Theatre Dublin, Martin Theatre, and the team of very bright, young ladies involved with the Downtown Development Authority (DDA) have done it again! They have figured out a way to get this ole country boy out of my recliner and into their seats at the theatre.
How you may ask? By having a series of westerns at the “Picture Show,” that’s how! First it was Christmas movies, then war movies, and now westerns. I just can’t resist.
In this case it was Clint Eastwood in the Good, The Bad and The Ugly. The movie came out when I was 11 years old (I’m 62 now),and I can remember watching it at the Gene Theatre in McRae on a Saturday afternoon. Of course, many more came after that one with Clint Eastwood in them, and then he became a Director.
Now, if you don’t like Clint Eastwood, all I can say is, you ain’t right! Clint is just bad. But wait, he was the good in the Good, Bad and Ugly. Well maybe he was bad but good…. well anyway it was a good movie.
If you haven’t had the pleasure of going on a Monday night to see one of the classics Tara and the gang are showing, you need to. I’ve watched the same shows on TV and it’s just not the same. The screen is big, and the sound is great!
What makes it even more fun is to have a pretty date and some good friends to go along with you.Cile and I were with Charlie and Jane Garbutt and Gerald and Janet Smith. Of course, the girls just loved the parts that were particularly bloody, or when there was a good gun fight. Not really. But there were these two ladies in the movie that Clint had some interactions with… Doesn’t that make it a chick flick? I sure hope it does because I think we all have a payback coming, if not, and might have to see a real deal chick flick!
Next week is Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Remember that one? More than likely you will see ole Phil sitting near the back with my bucket of popcorn and diet coke enjoying myself with my bride in Downtown Dublin, GA.
