A movie-related vacation!

nHi everyone. I've created a new blog, but don't worry, I haven't gone all Sybil on you - at least not yet. Maybe closer to Three Faces of Eve. That blog will be sort of my personal journal. However, since the first post has to do with movies, I thought I'd share it here too.

Next week I will be going to New Orleans for the first time to visit my dad (who lives there), and I'm very

Disney's new movie, The Princess and the Frog, is set in New Orleans. Alas, the movie itself will not play there while I am there, but the Museum of Modern Art has this cool exhibit, which I plan to attend!

My dad says he also intends to take to The Clover Grill, which was featured in a scene from The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. 

And check out this EXTREMELY cool-sounding theater I found! They are showing Miracle on 34th St. (blessedly, the ORIGINAL and not the mezzo-mezzo 90s remake). And if you know me, you know I love nothing better than to see old movies in old movie theaters!

So that's some of my itinerary so far - and I welcome comments on this blog to. So in the interest of spawning some, let me ask you - anybody been to New Orleans and/or have any suggestions as to what I should see? I'll be there from Monday Nov. 30  through Friday Dec. 4.
