Arclight Hollywood – Los Angeles, CA

“I can say it, but you won’t you believe me.
You say you do, but you don’t deceive me.
It’s hard to know they’re out there,
It’s hard to know that you still care.

Dead hearts are everywhere!
Dead hearts are everywhere!”

I don’t think I have ever cried more in a public place and enjoyed it as much as I did at the Arclight Hollywood. Luckily for me, theaters are dark.

LK and I had been itching to see Like Crazy for about 3 or 4 months. Thanks Sundance! Finally when they had a limited release during our now bi-monthly trips to LA, this was the only theater showing the film. We had no idea how nice this theater was until arrival. They have a fully stocked bar in front, by which we had afternoon cocktails, and it just so happened when we were there they had props from the movie! They had the chair that Jacob gave Anna and the original handwritten letter that Anna left on Jacobs car.

Nevertheless as soon as the movie began, I should have known better and brought a Costsco sized portion of tissue, as I proceeded to sob throughout the whole movie. Ugh. Public crying is usually a definitely no-no for me, being a sign of weakness, but the movie just hit me that way.

I stifled the tears for probably 85% of this film and enjoyed every moment of it. It also didn’t help that we had cocktails beforehand, but I prefer to attribute the raw emotions to the power of the film.

Amazing theater, beautiful inside and out and a temporary shelter to my tears.
