As Dickens wrote in A Tale of Two Cities, "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times..." So, fellow Cinemetour members what was your most memorable cinema moment of 2003 either good or bad?

LOTR Trilogy @ the Cinerama Dome. Didn't make Trilogy Tuesday but saw Fellowship Of The Ring Extended Edition on 12/5, Two Towers Extended Edition on 12/12, and Return Of The King on 12/19.
To see THOSE movies in THAT theatre on THAT SCREEN...

Does anyone else find it ironic that I haven't seen a movie in a movie theater (except screening a few prints at the theater I work at, but that's work so it doesn't count) since ... oh ... July?

Adam, it's not ironic at all that you have not gone out to any movies. It is called a 'busman's holiday' when soemone does on his free time what he also does on his work time. Why would you want a 'busman's holiday' when you unavoidably screen films at work? There aren't that many good movies out there now, and going to a multiplex is NOT the EXPERIENCE that going to the movie palaces was. In your situation, I would avoid going to yet another multiplex like the plague.

I suppose I have two memorable experiences from this year ... watching Pirates of the Caribbean on a torn screen and Scott Neff dragging me out to see The Lizzy McGuire Movie where we watched some guy get arrested in the parking lot.
Scott, on the other hand, reports that he has seen over 100 films in theaters this year. That's the reason we saw Lizzy McGuire ... he'd seen everything else!
