I went with a friend for pizza at The Willard in Franklin, Indiana this evening followed by a movie at the Historic Artcraft Theatre. Tonight’s feature was Arsenic and Old Lace.

Carry Grant was great to see. I love his facial expressions. What really made this a fun night out, however, was seeing it at the Artcraft. This historic gem is a wonderful night out for those near and far. I am lucky to live so close to get to frequent the Artcraft pretty regularly.

Going for a movie at the Artcraft means being able to step back in time. From the decor, the friendly ushers, to the singing of the Star Spangled Banner and old fashioned cartoon playing before the movie – the whole experience is worth so much more than the $5 admission.

Take advantage of the Artcraft if you live nearby. If you don’t – seek out the closest historic theatre near you so that you can appreciate the experience while you have the opportunity.
