'Oh I Love You Adam, Alex, Peter, Brian Whatever Your Name Is!'

One of my all time favorite movies ever, and definitely my favorite Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant movie, is Charade. Since it was made in 1963, I was obviously never able to see it in theaters, but thanks to the Redford Theater in Detroit, I got to do that this past Saturday, and it was amazing! Who wouldn't love watching Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn on the big screen for a couple hours in a cool theater? If you haven't seen this movie, you really need to. You'll be jealous of Cary Grant's 'drip-dry' suit that he wears while in the shower and all of Audrey's fabulous hats and coats. 
The theater is pretty awesome. It opened in 1928 and is still just as beautiful. It has a Japanese theme that is carried out throughout with some pretty sweet dragons on the organ. Plus, the ceiling is painted like a night sky. Speaking of the organ, they have an organ player playing music before the movie, and I know that does not sound so great, but it is. When we went, he played a lot of Star Wars music. It'll completely change your mind about organ music.
It only costs $4 to get in and all the workers are volunteers. They are trying to replace the carpet in the theater and keep the place updated, so when you go make sure to give them a few bucks!
They are having a Gone With The Wind movie event and a Three Stooges Festival in March on top of classic movies all the time. Oh, and don't forget Jay and Silent Bob will be there in April! Make sure to keep an eye on their website to see when your favorite classic is playing!
And just because...

  1. Dear God, I love the Redford theatre! It's a crazy experience, for any movie lover, to see an audience react to a film that you've only ever been able to watch by yourself. Especially when the film is over 50 years old and you are surrounded with people your own age who are laughing just as much as you are. Phenomenal!
