September 8: Delight at the movies

I do a little movie club every few Tuesdays or so. There's two theaters in Oakland that do $5 Tuesdays (which is crazy!!). My favorite is the Grand Lake Theater, which is a movie palace, built in the 1920's. The inside is painted ornately, in the Art Deco style. We usually end up in one of the bigger theaters, but tonight, our movie was in a tiny, tiny room, with the sky painted like the night sky. The curtain went up. What's more magical than that?
