Put Some Gay In Your Day, Dallas!

Lights! Camera! Statler!

Few things make us happier than catching a classic movie again on the big screen. Having a celebrity from the movie at the screening just happens to be one of those things.

Starting this Sunday, Movies at The Statler brings four great movies back—along with an actor who starred in the film. That translates to Burton Gilliam from Blazing Saddles, Mariel Hemingway from Personal Best, Lorenzo Lamas from Grease, and Eric Roberts from The Expendables.

We had such a crush on Lorenzo Lamas in Grease, it’s probably for the best we don’t go to that particular screening or risk flinging ourselves on stage in front of hundreds. (Not that it’s stopped us before.)

Tickets get you access to the movie (of course) and the on-stage Q&A with the celebs, but VIP ticket four-packs get you up-close-and-personal for photos, autographs, and a meet and greet. Throughout then night, prizes will be awarded during raffles and for answering trivia questions correctly, so you could be staying at The Statler sometime soon.

Which is one of the best ways to get treated like an A-lister we know!

A Wreath A-Hangin’

Certain holiday traditions bring us great joy. Others, unimaginable terror. Wreaths, for instance. The mere sight of one can send chills down our spine and trigger uncontrollable crying jags.
