Last Sunday a bunch of movie people won some awards. I didn’t really care because I’d never seen any of the movies they won the awards for. Not one. Not even the animated ones. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of at least half of them.
I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in my Oscar ignorance. Once you become a parent, keeping up on the latest and greatest from the big screen doesn’t usually stay a priority. But just to make sure, I asked my email subscribers.
What was the last non-animated film you saw in the movie theater?
I’ve included the year the film came out with their answers.
“I just saw 50 Shades of Grey  last weekend but before that it’d been a very very long time.” -Jackie B.
“The last film I saw was a Dutch film. My friend had asked me to come and I did so not want to go, but she’s very persuasive. I am very prejudice towards Dutch films. Turned out it was one of the best films I have ever seen and so funny. The film is called: Gooische vrouwen 2 . I never saw part 1.” -Barbara A.
“Enough Said  with James Gandolfini and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.” -Emily M.
“The last non-kid movie that I saw in a theater was Les Miserables . Most movies are destined to be Redbox rentals watched when (if) the kids go to sleep. I saw Les Mis, the stage musical, in London as an undergrad doing a semester abroad. I saw it with a group of guys. I discreetly tried to dry my tears before the house lights came on for intermission, only to discover that all the guys had been crying too. I knew I wanted to see the movie in a theater, if only for the sound quality. I caught a matinee alone while the kids were still in daycare. Me and all the other middle-aged women. I cried as much as I wanted and didn’t care who saw.” -Karen W.
I was totally random in adding these women’s comments to this post, but did you notice the years? 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012.
I have to admit, I’m a little surprised that the answers are as recent as they are. I think the last time I was in a movie theater was 2007. That’s right, I haven’t been out to see a movie since we had kids. I guess I need to nab a babysitter and plan a date night.
Anyone know what’s in the theaters right now?
