Do the Cutest Thing Ever and Watch ‘Amelie’ in the Park for FREE!

The Bay's best newsletter for underground events & news

I had this haircut in college. Because of this movie. Bad move.

The first time I saw ‘Amelie’ was in the movie theater with a high school boyfriend (now a writer for ‘Modern Family’…fuck me).  The second time I saw ‘Amelie’ was in a parking lot in Seattle, which was actually incredibly awesome. The third time I saw ‘Amelie’ I’m pretty sure there was some kind of marijuana-y substance involved, but I don’t remember because I fell asleep immediately.

But on Saturday you can have a better experience than any of mine by going to see one of the best modern French movies in Washington Square Park this Saturday!  If I had a date, I would date that person at this thing.  Since I don’t, I’ll probably still go watch this (because how awesome is it going to be in Washington Square Park!?) but then feel like dog poop after because the movie is so ridiculously sweet.  At least if I close my eyes I can enjoy Yann Tiersen‘s haunting and sentimental soundtrack as the lonely, tortured artist that I am.

But seriously, ‘Amelie’ in Washington Square Park?  Epic, and FREE.  I’m there, alone or not!  Come see me for some Jameson.  I’m very generous.

Washington Square Park Saturday, September 11, 8pm/dusk Union & Columbus [North Beach] FREE

When Christy announced she was leaving her family's Southern California home and moving to San Francisco, her mom said, "Have fun in that den of sin." This is the only (however sarcastic) advice Christy has ever taken from her mom, who also told her to join and cover her eyes during sex scenes in movies. Christy puts her creative writing degree to good use by locating the typos on Chinese food menus and spends most of her time challenging friends to all-you-can-eat contests and trying to get that one bartender at Zeitgeist to smile.
