I’m always looking for fun things to do in the city, something other than going to another bar or restaurant. I know that New York has trillions of things to offer, it’s just that not a lot catches my interest (maybe that’s my problem, not yours New York). Well, lucky for me a new movie theatre just opened in my hood called Metrograph and it looks like it’s just my speed. Have you heard of it?
It’s not completely finished yet but I popped my head in last weekend and not only are they showing beaaaauuutiful films from the past and present (think Singin’ in the Rain, Vertigo and Carol) but the Metrograph also has a restaurant (coming soon), balcony lounge, bookstore, and specialty candy shop!!!! The date night of my dreams. I’m planning to go this week to see A Space Program about artist Tom Sachs. Can’t wait!
Has anything new and exciting opened up in your hood?
Very cool to hear that you’re enjoying Metrograph. I can’t wait to go next time I’m in the city.
I always loved dancing. Not writhing around to pulsing music, but ballroom dancing with a partner. It’s almost like tennis–like a sport where one side lobs the ball and the other has to be up to the challenge. It’s all proper and absent of any nightclub meat-market atmosphere. Of course, knowing how to dance is a requirement, but it isn’t rocket science–with three months of lessons, you can do amazing things, especially with a good partner! It’s exercise and good clean fun but also somehow romantic in that B&W movie of NYC way…..
I am really bad with trying out new things.
I think that the only new things I have discovered lately are cafes. :)
But I just love finding a new cafe! Especially if I find it before others and I can always sit at my favourite table. :)

Nothing as exciting as this!
I can’t think of anything really new locally but I am definitely in a rut for entertainment. I love to visit my local museums. I enjoy regularly visiting my zoo. it is not the fanciest or best funded zoo but when the temperatures are cool, the animals are pretty unpredictable and very fascinating to watch in their groups.
this is off the topic a little but the image at the top reminded me of this Jacques Demy film, Les Demoiselles de Roquefort (The Young Girls of Roquefort). the music, colors, and costumes are so fun. it has a very romantic story. I guess the theatre you described seemed like the type of place that might play that film. I think it is not as poignant as his famous film, The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, but I still find it delightful.
Hi! I am not familiar with the film but if you are in the area, you should definitely check out what is playing at the Metrograph. I was in a rut for entertainment as well…
