Certified Angus Beef Movies at The Palace

Raisin in the Sun movie posterIf you're taste in films is a little more old school, you might want to check out Albany's Palace Theater. Tonight at 7:00 The Palace is screening Sidney Poitier's 1961 classic, "A Raisin in the Sun". The theater's a classic too. Recently renovated and gorgeous to look at, so get there in time to scout out the perfect balcony seat and enjoy the atmosphere. Ticket's are only 5 bucks, so you can splurge on popcorn or wine. It's part of the theater's Certified Angus Beef classic movie series. Yes, you read that correctly. No, there's no beef involved. What do you want for 5 bucks.


I really expected the writer of this blurb to hit us with a hideous beef pun right up there in the second half of the first sentence...something like "if your taste in films is a little more carnivorous". Kudos on your restraint.

Also can't help but notice there are several grammatical errors here although not on the grand scale of the Sears classic. Et tu, All Over Albany?

Elizabeth: You're correct. (And we totally had that coming!)

The Scoop

For a decade All Over Albany was a place for interested and interesting people in New York's Capital Region. It was kind of like having a smart, savvy friend who could help you find out what's up. AOA stopped publishing at the end of 2018.
