I love you deeply for posting about the theater showing of Cool Hand Luke, love that movie and would have never known otherwise :-)

And I love your comment! You made my day. Enjoy the movie. In case you didn't know, the Redford Theatre is gorgeous and there is a short pipe organ concert before each movie. Also, real butter!
