    Bit to Do

    Cinemark Tinseltown presents 'Home Alone'
    Print this page

    Let's be honest – when you were a kid you practiced setting up booby traps all over your house in the event you were mistakenly left home over Christmas and found your home being invaded by two hilariously inept would-be burglars. A former romantic partner of mine got her head bashed in as a child because of her booby-trapping shenanigans. You see, she and her friend needed to protect their club house from the entrance of “bad guys,” so a rock was rigged to fall on any uninvited guests should they open the door. Important lesson here: if you set a trap, it's important to remember that it's there. She fractured her skull. It's ok, you can laugh – it's hilarious. It didn't cause any lasting damage (or did it??).

    My point is, of course, that in honor of the holiday season, Cinemark Tinseltown is screening Home Alone

    twice today. This timeless classic stars, of course, Macaulay Culkin (who's, like,


    now – he's 32 years old! When did this happen? He isn't doing much film work nowadays – I'm sure we would all be curious to see how he handles himself on the screen recently.) Kevin McCallister is eight years old and his family are a bunch of jerks – and so he is nothing less than thrilled when he finds he was accidentally left at home while they all go on vacation. You know what happens next – burglars and booby traps, and somewhere in there is a message about the importance of family and how we shouldn't judge creepy homeless-looking men by their appearances.

    Home Alone

    will play at 2:00 and 7:00. Tinseltown is located at 4400 Towne Center Drive. Further theater information can be found at the Tinseltown website.

    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.
