What better way to spend a Friday Eid and Navratri afternoon than at the spacious AMC cinema at the Jersey Gardens Outlet Mall, just down the road (literally) from Newark Airport and IKEA, to see Laaga Chunari Mein Daag?
The managers at the theater must have decided to try screening some Hindi movies to see if it’s favorable for them. During the summer they were showing Heyy Babyy.
Well, I hope they keep it up – what a fantastically comfy place this is…. and it’s a massive cinema (20 screens, huge concessions area, and stadium seating). And the tickets were only $7.50 because it was an afternoon screening. Excellent.
If you’re in the area, please patronize the place, and hopefully they’ll turn enough of a profit to consider it worth their while to keep showing the big ticket films (they were handing out postcards of Saawariya today, and there was a trailer for Aaja Nachle).
If you’re in Manhattan, you can get to the mall or the airport with public transportation (then connect at the airport with a shuttle bus to the mall).
The movie itself? Enjoyed it quite a bit, thank you. Review to be posted shortly…
