Girlie Night at the Alamo: Big
Updated: Sep 1, 2018
There are few things I love as much as drinking something pink and alcoholic, laughing with my favorite ladies and watching movies, so I am eternally grateful to the Alamo Drafthouse for hosting a monthly Girlie Night screening. This month Girlie Night brings us Big,starring my dream husband when I was a little girl, Mr. Tom Hanks. When I first watched this movie as a kid, all I could think about was how much fun it all was, from the famous floor piano in FAO Schwartz to having a trampoline in your awesome penthouse. But when I watched it again about five years ago, I realized more than anything that the movie is a lesson in how completely and soul-crushingly un-fun it can be to be an adult, which makes it all the more important to never quit finding ways to make all the boring crap fun. And even though this is Girlie Night, this really isn’t a lesson for girls. It’s a lesson for everyone.
The Girlie Night screening of Big is tonight at 7 p.m. at the Alamo Drafthouse Ritz and will be hosted by the lovely Sarah Pitre.
