New Year's Day 2011 in Red Bank

The King's Speech is now showing in Red Bank, Freehold, and New Brunswick. We saw it on New Year's Day at Clearview Cinema in Red Bank. The 1:40 pm showing was sold out, so we bought tickets for the 4:20 pm showing and walked over to Wallace Street to have lunch. We had a discount coupon for a New Year's lunch at Gaetano's, where we enjoyed a calamari calabrese appetizer and a margherita pizza with sausage and capers. After lunch we spent some time at Starbucks, enjoying our New York Times and coffees.

We ended up sitting in the front row at the movie because the entire theatre was packed. The lady collecting tickets thought she was my mother. She chided us and the couple in line in front of us for coming so late (15 minutes+ before the showing). She reminded me a bit of the Hazlet Multiplex guy with the megaphone. I could do without that sort of experience. The movie was absolutely wonderful, btw. Both Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush were superb. I hope you get to see it.
