The riverfront district of St. Anthony on the east side of the Stone Arch Bridge is gorgeous. If you haven’t been so, I suggest going there. Like right now. There are restaurants, cobblestone streets, and the iconic flashing lights of Minneapolis’ most historic theatre (perhaps rivaled by the Uptown…): St. Anthony Main Theatre.
This no frills theatre is affordable, cozy, and offers a glimpse into a slightly older version of movie going (read: the chairs are just chairs – not kooshy beds as in some of the newer theaters!).
Tickets are $6 for students, $8.50 for adults, and $5 for everyone on Tuesdays. Tuesdays also offer a $2 medium popcorn deal!
Noah and I have been to see two movies here in the last couple weeks: This is the End and Monsters U.
This is the End was completely not what I expected. I hadn’t watched a trailer or anything, so expecting the typical slightly crude humor of a comedy-kings movie from our day. Instead…it was scary! Admittedly, still hilarious, but it was scary! I would recommend it if you don’t mind some gore and blasphemy. Monsters U couldn’t hold a candle to the original Monsters, Inc., but I’m sure no one really expected it to. It was still entertaining and some funny scenes.
I’ll hopefully be headed back for another movie soon, but it’s still a few months until the movie I’ve really been waiting for…
Hunger Games 2!!! November can’t come soon enough. 🙂
