I know that I’ve often ragged on Douglas Theatres, but there are times when they do me right. And today is one of those days.
Ever since last year, I’ve been quivering — yes, quivering — with anticipation for Hot Fuzz (watch the trailer), the latest from the folks behind Shaun of the Dead and Spaced. And I’ve been wondering if and when the movie would ever make it to little ol’ Lincoln. Movie releases schedules were no help, and neither was Douglas Theatres’ website — and I began to fear that the only way I’d get to see the flick would be on the small screen.
But this morning, I swung by Douglas Theatres’ website on a lark, and lo and behold, there was the wonderful news. Hot Fuzz opens in Lincoln… today. Suffice to say, I know where I’ll be come this evening: seated in the Lincoln Grand and getting reacquainted with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost.
On a sidenote, any man who has a wife willing to cancel a long-awaited dinner date to her favorite restaurant so that they can go see a violent buddy-cop film is a fortunate man indeed.
