Thursday Night at the Movies

One of the worst kept secrets of all time is that all of us here at Boise Weekly love to watch movies—especially with friends—so I'm particularly excited to be hosting our first-ever Boise Weekly Preview Night at The Flicks on Thursday, November 2. Think of it as an exclusive get-together, where I will showcase clips and trailers of some of the most anticipated upcoming films, including Call Me by Your Name; Darkest Hour; The Shape of Water; Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri; and so many more. I'm fortunate enough to have already seen most of these movies (all of which are sure to be Oscar contenders), and I can't wait to share Boise Weekly's enthusiasm for them with fellow film fans.

What's more, is that our dear friends at The Flicks will be pouring wine and beer, our dear friends from Bonefish Grill will be dishing out delicious treats, and your dear friends from BW will be handing out spectacular swag, compliments of some of the biggest studios in Hollywood. Also, since we're meeting on The Flicks' patio, we'll have blankets available (dress warm, though). You don't get to keep them, but I'll have some special giveaways, so the evening promises to be a lot of fun for film lovers.

I was pretty sure Preview Night at The Flicks would be popular, but I was bowled over by the response: It sold out in just a few days. While I'm sorry if you missed out, you'll be happy to know we're already making plans for another preview night sometime next year.

In the meantime, see you at the movies!
