Woohoo, the weekend is here - finally! Now what to do since there is still way too much dirty snow lying around and, if you are like me, you just don't feel like spending too much time outside in the cold. Dito for driving out of town (across the bridge!!!) to fight for parking at the mall. Of course there is always Netflicks and On Demand so you don't need to leave your house at all. But I may have a better idea: The Cape Ann Cinema and Stage, right downtown Gloucester at 21 Main Street, is showing the movie "Still Alice" starting today. It runs until Thursday, March 5th. The showing times for today, tomorrow and Sunday are 1 pm, 4 pm and 6.30 pm. Next week, Monday through Thursday, it is playing at 5 pm and 7 pm. Julianne Moore just won the Oscar for Best Actress (and the Golden Globe and the SAG Award) for playing linguistics professor Dr. Alice Howland, a brilliant woman who is diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer's Disease. The movie is based on the novel with the same title by Lisa Genova which was excellent! I am dying to see this movie. If you are worried about leaving your couch, the Cape Ann Cinema actually features comfy couches to sit on, plus you are allowed to bring in your favorite movie candy or snack. Start the evening at one of our excellent local restaurants and you will be glad you got out of the house for a little bit :-)
Have a lovely weekend!
