The Skeleton Key

Skeleton_keyOne of the first things you need to locate when you move into a new neighborhood — or a new country for that matter — is the nearest movie theatre. Following this rule, we scanned our neighborhood Sunday evening and managed to find a fairly close Regal Cinema. The movie of choice was The Skeleton Key and it was actually not bad for a horror movie. The twist at the end was quite unexpected and the overall plot was not the usual cheesiness you would expect from a horror movie. I would give it 7/10. All in all, I don’t regret letting go of the 12 dollars we spent on our two matinee tickets.

After the movie we made our way to a newly discovered goldmine: IKEA. We were quite pleased to find such a mammoth store less than 10 miles from where we live. We purchased a few items, mostly kitchen utensils, wandering about until we were kicked out at close. So in a nutshell, one can deduce one thing from this post: We like our neighborhood.

  1. Great! It always makes a move from ones homeplace easier, if the new neighborhood is fun, exciting, and refreshing. I am glad for you both. Another fun thing around DC, usually in Maryland, is the “Movie Draft House”, a converted theatre that shows a slightly older movie, on the cheap, but also serves beer and some food, in a relaxed table and chair enviroment. Enjoy.
    Take care.

  2. In Waikiki (Hawaii), all the movie theaters have closed because the high lease rents or whatever. So there is not a single movie house in Waikiki when there were once many. Even visitors to our state have to go outside of the hotel district in order to see a movie. A neighborhood without movie theaters has definitely something missing about it.
