Last night we wrapped up our current Connections series in most stellar fashion with the most popular movie of all time, Gone with the Wind. A joyous time was had by all. As we prepare ourselves for a bout of cinematic hibernation, we want to thank each and every person that has bought a ticket to Metro Classics over the last three years. We're truly stunned by the continued interest in our two-bit organization. We started this repertory program out of a love of movies, first and foremost, and we're amazed that we're still here three years down the line. We're not expecting to become billionaires with this and thankfully, neither are the fine folks at Landmark Theatres who had enough faith in us to gave us a chance. We would like to take this opportunity to thank them as well.
We're taking a breather for the rest of the winter, letting you all catch up on those year-end critic's picks and such. Don't fret, we'll be back in the spring for more awesome old movies. We've already got a theme and potential calendar mapped out so stay tuned to this site for updates and announcements. If you've got any suggestions on films you'd like to see in an upcoming calendar, please post a comment here. We will most definitely consider it. Unless it's Network. That movie sucks.
During the hiatus we plan on keeping this site fresh with at least a few posts a week. So check back often for history lessons, pre-game warm-ups, laudable links, and any news pertinent to our humble enterprise.
