You know it's not Halloween without some good ol' fashioned horror movie viewings. Now normally scary movies are left to watch with friends on a cozy couch somewhere, but this year was different. One of Birmingham's most well-known symbols is the Alabama Theatre in downtown. It's been around forever (and by forever I mean the early 20th century), and I love it because it still has all of it's vintage charm. A few weeks ago I saw Fleet Foxes there, but what I really looked forward to was watching some horror movies on the silver screen. Last week, my stylish friend Matt and I headed out for a viewing of Roman Polanski's famed horror flick Rosemary's Baby, starring the adorable Mia Farrow and oh so creepishly handsome John Cassavettes. Have you guys seen it? It really is a classic thriller. Check out the awesome movie poster:
But the fun didn't stop there. Two days later we went and watched the anti-climatic The Blair Witch Project and ever-gory Dawn of the Dead. The experience was just so lovely. They bring out an old fashioned organ player and we all did a Halloween sing-a-long together. If you guys are ever around this part of the South, I really suggest you check out the Alabama Theatre here in Birmingham. I can't wait for them to start rolling out the holiday films! But for now, I must simply focus on figuring out what exactly I'm going to be wear for all these Halloween festivities coming up....Pin-up girl, anyone?
