We're trying to think of a food that tastes good and is good for you and if you share it everyone else likes it, too, and it doesn't cost a lot or require much to prepare.
Hmm. Broccoli almondine? That'll do.
The new American Cinematheque membership deal is a lot like broccoli almondine, in its healthy-tasty-economical-ness. If you join before December 31st, 2009, the Cinematheque will throw in an extra year gratis. The Cinemathequers also note that they are having to raise the membership price for the first time in a looong while come New Year's Day.
So now is the time. And you know you'll get a lot of good stuff, screenings just for members, getting tickets ahead of everyone else, and the coveted just-for-members queue. If you're enticed by all this Andrew is your man. Drop him a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Two years for one. Cultural nights at the gorgeous Egyptian and Aero Theatres. Not being way back at the very end the line, feeling all boo-hoo-my-seat'll-bite. Excellent, eclectic films from hither and yon. Helping Cinematheque keep on keepin' on. Maybe even buying a membership for yourself and one for a celluloid-loving pal, as a little holiday giftie.
See? Total broccoli almondine.
