Movie Theaters Aren't Just for Movies Anymore!

by Pat Wattam

Movie Theaters used to be a place where you went to see a first run movie - or, in a small town like where I grew up, probably only 2nd run movies!  Today you can see Opera, Broadway, and more - here in Baton Rouge at Perkins Rowe.  The Manship Theater downtown also runs movies that we love - haven't checked that out but wonder how big THAT screen would be!  This week, which made me think to post this, Perkins Rowe will run Raiders of the Lost Ark?  Remember the first time (or 2nd or 3rd) you saw it - all your friends were talking about it - the snakes, the reflection of the snake in the safety glass when it is in Harrison Ford's Face!  It was an AMAZING and totally entertaining movie - and the end was so scarey with the faces melting away (glad I watched the special where they showed how that was done - now I actually enjoy watching the chocolate melt off and the eyeballs pop out!), and then the burecratic ending!  What a movie!  

When we did an Moive tour of Kauai several years ago, one of the places we went to was where the opening scene from the movie was filmed - where Harrison Ford grabs the rope swing to land in the water and catch the plane as it taxies off the water.  They had a rope swing there and let people swing out over the water, but not drop into it.  Evidently some people came dressed in character sometime and jumped in - they don't allow that any more.  I was REALLY, REALLY chicken but finally did it - screamed the whole way! It was a blast and I highly recommend doing it the next time you are in Kauai!

So, Sunday, June 1st, at Perkins Rowe, 2 p.m. Sunday and then 2 and 7 p.m. this Wednesday, Raiders of the Lost Ark!!  Enjoy!

Happy Mother's Day

by Pat Wattam

The celebration of Mother's Day began in the United States in the early 1900s.  It is a celebration honoring Mothers, maternal bonds, the influence of mothers on society, etc.  Not everyone still has a mother - some have more than one - and others have special women who have influenced them much like a mom would.  I was lucky to not only have a great mom who made me do things I didn't want - like practice piano in the summer time! - and also an aunt who, like myself, did not have any children but for some reason, she was so special to me and I always treated her like my second mother - she always received Mother's Day gifts from me.  

Take some time this weekend to thank, spend time with, or just remember those women who have had a great influence in your life!  My aunt is no longer alive but she will be remembered once more this Mother's Day, even as I celebrate with my wonderful mom!
