"somerville theater $18.00 double feature senior discount.
720 pm day of wodin 24 august 2022. do the right thing
and crooklyn. my favourite
part of do the right thing is Radio blasting out Public Enemy
on his '80s boom box (oh wait this IS an '80s movie!) Ghetto blaster?
ah need a TRAILER blaster! Crooklyn has a great 1973 Soul Train
era soundtrack (I was hangin' in Coney Island wit O. rex then!)
but what seems incongrous is a family of colour GLEEFULLY singing
along with "i woke up in love this morning" as Patridge
family is on the "TV eYE"/ "mEAN SCREEN"".....
