…If you don’t go to the Landmark Loews in Jersey City on Saturday, January 28th., because Piper Laurie is going to be there. You remember her as Carrie’s crazy mom, Mrs. White, but she’s also beloved to me as Catherine Martell from Twin Peaks.
Apparently, Ms. Laurie has a new book out and the event is to promote the new book. It starts at 5:15 p.m., where you can meet Ms. Laurie with your admission. At 6 they’re showing The Hustler, then at 7:45 you can meet her again with admission to Carrie, 8:30 is an onstage interview, and there will be a showing of Carrie at 9:15.
Aside from meeting Piper Laurie, this is a chance for me to see Carrie on the big screen. The Landmark Loews theater is a real treat. It was built in 1929 as a movie palace and it’s currently being restored. I went there to see a showing of Nosferatu with a live organist. The place is beautiful. It’s huge, still somewhat decayed, but covered in red velvet and gilt. There’s an orchestra pit, a giant organ, and balconies. So it’s worth seeing any movie you can there, just for the experience.
Combo admission for both the shows is just $16, it’s $10 for just one movie and that includes the meet-and-greet.
I’m definitely going and if you’re in the NYC/NJ area you should definitely come. The theater is super easy to get to if you take the PATH train to Journal Square, it’s pretty much around the corner and across the street.
Also, remember that if you don’t go, they’re all gonna laugh at you!

There's film criticism, literary criticism, and humor here. I can be highbrow but there's lots of pop culture too. And feminism.
I fervently love "Twin Peaks" and wish it were a real place so I could move there. I can't list my favorite scary movies because they change depending on my mood, the season, and how much coffee I've had.
I'm an artist looking for ways to blend creepy with cute. I try to channel my childhood nightmares, my love of horror, and my experiences with sleepy paralysis.
