Film Society of Lincoln Center . . .


I'm kind of embarrassed to admit this, but last night I saw my first movie at the Film Society of Lincoln Center. Having lived in the neighborhood for almost six years, I can't believe I haven't been taking advantage of this!

One of my best friends, Helen, and I decided to catch a film after work, and it turned out to be the perfect cure for a bad case of the Mondays (which we both had). For starters, we saw a fantastic movie: Dior and I, a documentary of Raf Simons' first haute couture collection for Christian Dior. (If you're in any way interested in fashion and/or design, you'll love this film. It was as beautiful as it was moving.)

We also ended up having dinner in the theatre, which we were not expecting. The "concessions stand" which sells the usual popcorn and candy, also had gourmet sandwiches and salads made to order, a coffee bar, dessert options, and a wine list. We made a little meal of it with a couple sandwiches, popcorn, and a glass of wine. After the movie we walked through Lincoln Plaza, planning the next time we'd meet up for another.

It don't know if it was the fact that we were at Lincoln Center or that we were dining during the film, but the whole experience felt so much more special than a typical movie outing. If you're ever looking for a fun date idea or just an upgraded movie night, check out what's playing at Lincoln Center - I think you'll really enjoy!
