Rooftop Film Club
You may or may not have noticed, but I have every intention of exploring what this city has to offer and I may have just experienced one of my favorite adventures to date. I often stumble across things to do on Social Media and I happened to notice an article on a Rooftop Film Club series hosted by Time Out Magazine that features a classic film every Tuesday for most of the Summer.
There was no need to look any further when I saw Pretty Woman listed for the last Tuesday in June. In hindsight, choosing a date right after a girls trip may have been overly enthusiastic, but as soon as the opening credits started rolling with the sun setting on Manhattan, I knew all was right with the world.
I purchased tickets for $25 a person, which included the movie, a glass of wine or beer and one taco per person. The term taco should of been clarified as being used loosely, but Yotel on tenth ave, provided a more than suitable location for a re-watch of the 1990 film. Gylan and I received our headphones which provided sound and barrier from everyone hearing me quote my favorite parts of the movie. “You work on commission right? Big Mistake, Big, Huge!”
Half of the time I thought about why movies weren’t made like this anymore and during the other half I wondered if I knew what was actually going on as a ten year old viewer. I feel it would be an insult to describe any part of the plot, because as a citizen of this Universe, you should have seen this, however the classic scenes and classic lines seemed to all be summed up by Vivian when asked what she wanted and replied, “I just want the Fairytale.”
Don’t we all Vivian? Until next time.
