Last year, we had an exchange student from Japan living with us and I decided that a movie in this theater would be the perfect American holiday experience for her. Unfortunately, I chose a movie based solely upon its reviews without actually reading them. I chose, "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo", without having read the book or having any idea what it was about. Needless to say, about 20 minutes into the movie, I grabbed my 17 year old host daughter and we flew out of that theater as fast as our feet would carry us hoping that her little mind would not be warped forever. It was an epic failure. We came home and watched "Midnight in Paris" on demand in our family room. The movie was delightful, but the theater experience was not quite the same. I am determined not to repeat the experience, so I chose early. This year's selection will be "Hyde Park on Hudson".
