I am SO excited. I love the Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers movies. My daughter also. She's 14 and a major classic movie buff like myself. Her idol is Ginger Rogers. Since moving from California to Texas I took her away from a lot of that Hollywood history she craves so badly. They are constantly showing their movies in theatres around the Los Angeles area.
I really wanted to make this possible for her so I looked hours and hours online around the Texas area but had no luck. Until I found the Miller Outdoor Theatre here in Houston. They have a ton of different music performances, plays, concerts and some movies. So last year I decided to take the chance and write the director and ask her if she ever had classic movie showings. I mentioned Ginger Rogers as a favorite and although they didn't show many she told me she would consider my suggestions for the new 2010 season.
So imagine my excitment when she emailed me last week and told me she had a night opening in June, and she wanted to show a Fred and Ginger movie. She asked me what my favorite one was and me and my daughter chose Swingtime. When I told my daughter she was so excited and smiled from ear to ear. This was her dream to be able to sit in a theatre setting and see this wonderful movie. And now I had made it possible for her. I told her to remember this when she decided to get snotty with me:-) but all kidding aside, it's going to be an awesome night! I can't wait!
