    I watched Mary Poppins

    the other day. First time I'd seen it in about fifteen years. I got a bemused look by the man who checked me out at Wild and Woolly. “Any special occasion?” he asked. I replied that I hadn't seen it in a while and wondered how it held up as an adult. (This is only partially true. My ladyfriend and I had special plans for the viewing of this film. Discretion prevents me from full disclosure on this platform, but it involved a table spread full of snacks.) Turns out that, just like many of the films I watched growing up, there is a lot to be gained from it now that I am grown. But that's a whole other discussion, one I would be happy to get into later.

    The point is,

    Mary Poppins

    was the film debut of the great Julie Andrews. She even received an Oscar for the role, and she was launched into stardom. Just the next year she starred in another one of her greatest roles: Maria in

    The Sound of Music

    . Maria is a postulate – a nun-in-training – who takes on the role of governess for the children of Georg Von Trapp (Christopher Plummer), a widowed naval officer. As she teaches the children the magic of music and softens the heart of the stern Captain, the Nazis begin to enter Austria.

    You've seen it. You love it. You know all the words to every song. Now see it on the big screen today as Tinseltown presents

    The Sound of Music

    as the newest installment in the Cinemark Classics series. It will be shown twice, at 2:00 and 7:00.

    About Allan Day

    There are legitimate theories that the Big Bang originated from the collapse of a black hole in a fourth-dimensional universe. This stuff fascinates me, and I love reading about it. I love reading about science. And about anything, for that matter, provided it's interesting - and everything is potentially interesting, so I'm fascinated by a lot of things. I also read a lot of fiction (Kurt Vonnegut deserves deification) and watch a lot of movies (Charlie Chaplin also deserves deification). I've made a few short films myself. I'm also a writer of everything - I'm close to a Bachelor's in English at IUS. My life consists of reading, writing, bartending, and taking care of my daughter full-time. Life is busy and life is stressful, but that's why there's music and art and other forms of relaxation.
