All for Meeeee

I LOVE going to the movies. (but only during discounted times) My senior year in high school, my best friend and I went the our town's $1 movie theater nearly every week followed by a trip to IHOP. Yes, we were party animals! At college, I went to a small school but it was across the street from Notre Dame so most weekends I had a choice of up to 3 movies all FREE! I didn't go every weekend but I went quite a bit including an all-night cartoon movie marathon the week before finals. (I was one of more than a hundred study procrastinators.) Once I had kids, I found free summer movies which we did for a few years. It took me almost 10 years of living in this area to find a cheap movie theater. It's a great little movie theater that has $2 Tuesdays. We are often some of the only people in the movies because we homeschool and can go in the early afternoon. Just this year I've found Rave cinemas has $5 for the first showing of any movie each day and $5 on Tuesdays or Wednesdays (depending on the theater).

So, what does all of this have to do with the title? Well, Saturday I decided to go see Elysium while dh was in charge of the kids on Sunday morning. I invited a few friends but everyone had plans. When I walked into the theater, I was the only one there. So, the theater was All for Meeeeeee! This was the first and probably the only time this will ever happen to me but I thoroughly enjoyed it! (That's the introvert in me.)

So, Thanks Rave Cinema!!! You made this introverted, movie-lover very happy this weekend.

For those who don't know, "All for Meeeee" is a Lord of the Rings movie reference.
