Last Saturday night, we had a girls’ night out and saw Twilight at the Fox Theatre. Needless to say, it was a hoot. Three thousand girls howled every time “Edward Cullen” pouted or was about to kiss “Bella Swan.” I got to see how vampires “glisten like diamonds” on one of the largest movie screens in Atlanta. It was delightful to experience the Fox as the grand movie palace it was designed to be.
By now, you’ve probably missed Coca-Cola’s impromptu movie series, which filled in some dates left by the cancellation of Tarzan. But, you’re not to late to catch the Richard Burton/Elizabeth Taylor epic Cleopatra in all its glory. It plays Monday, Feb. 9 at 7 p.m. and tickets are on sale now. General admission seats are $10; tickets for a pre-show wine-tasting are $15. And, during movie nights, the theater is surrounded by plenty of $5 parking. If you haven’t seen a movie at the Fox, don’t wait until Coca-Cola’s film series picks back up in the summer, go go go now! You won’t be sorry, I promise.
