NOTE: TIME CHANGE from 7:30 to 7:15 (WEDNESDAY). Due to the length of movie (2:17 minutes) East Gate changed the starting time of Public Enemies to 7:15. The Buses will still load at 6:00 and leave Columbus by 6:15. No exceptions.
NOTE: If you are going to the movie to see yourself OR people you know. Bring eye drops because you will not be able to blink. I have heard that almost all of the scenes shot in Columbus are in the movie. HOWEVER, they are broken up into little 1 second shots.
As one person told me it's a wild ride and while the TIME if the movie seems long you will not move the entire time. It seems short and as he said "It is better then I expected".
The one BIG worry I have is Pizza Shak. As I went to the place yesterday to solidify their donations of ten 20inch pizzas' there was a sign on the door. Close until further notice for maintenance and repair. WHAT????? GULP!!!! I called and the message said opening again Tuesday. CROSS YOUR FINGERS**.
Note - crossing your fingers was originally used when a suspected witch crossed your path, you could make a cross shortcut by crossing your index and second finger or the index fingers of both hands. This would provide protection and ward off the evil influence.
NOTE - Pizza Shak contains no witches!!
ON a side note Day One is going out of their way to help. They normally close at 9:00 but told us to call them as we leave Madison so they can pop the bread sticks into the oven and be super fresh as we arrive in Columbus.
Check out or buy a Wisconsin State Journal today!!
BIG STORY "Columbus resident Rod Melotte is so excited to see “Public Enemies” that he may levitate from his seat in the theater during the film."
I HATE that when that happens!!!! I can never tell if it is the 70's coming back to bite me in the ass again or if it's for real this time.
Long wait for 'Public Enemies' nearly over; film set to open here By TOM ALESIA
We are doing the movie Wednesday night - not Tuesday as many people think - WEDNESDAY!! We're not worthy of a TUESDAY screening.
Geez - the counter is down to ONE!!! remember when it was over 400? time flies!!
got an email from Roger Ebert . com
Check out Roger Eberts Review of PE (no mention of me LOL)
Speaking of Netflix and Valkyrie - I hope that since I rated the movie 5 out of 5 stars it does not think I LOVE Tom Cruise. He was pretty good in the movie and I have renewed respect for him . . . . until he weirds out on me again.
Random photo of the day - took it going to the final PEC-Premier meeting (YEA BABY - my camera is back). You know - the Columbus Fire Department is just SICK** with fire trucks.
Sick = Very good, excellent, awesome.
When I was a kid I wanted to grow up to BE a fire truck!! I was twisted way back then.
I received a rather cryptic email from Littleton Colorado saying they can not wait to see Columbus in the movie. They grew up in our town and moved away in 1976 two years after graduating from C-bus High (this is a problem with Columbus - I'll speak of this on another day).
In the last year I've gotten many emails from former residents saying hi and talking about how they miss Columbus. Makes me happy I moved here and I can understand why people feel the need to make contact with Columbus again. Once you see the rest of the world you will see how Columbus is a relaxing, pretty little town with very friendly people.
I loved living in Madison for 20+ years but Columbus feels more like a home.
HEY - did you guys hear Micheal Jackson died? I WISH they would cover this more on TV.
400,000 HITS!!! The boredom that is sweeping the world is amazing.
Have a great COLD Tuesday!
WOW - I also see that article is in the Portage Daily Register and the Beaver Dam Daily Citizen.
