Baby Myrtle

You wouldn't believe the number of times we have been asked if we are going to name our baby "Myrtle."  That's the first thing my mom asked when I told her we were expecting. We've been hearing this question from folks all over town, from the secretary at the doctor's office to wait staff to movie-goers.  So it was fitting that at my baby shower last weekend this was the cake:


No, her name is not going to be Myrtle. We don't have a clue yet as to what her name will be, but it will not be Myrtle (no offense, Myrtle).

Paint Job!


Before: 

Looking a little pasty after 10 years.

After:
As far as exterior renovating goes, we are planning to install new poster  boxes at some point.  The trouble is that the south side of the building takes a lot of weather, and our old poster boxes were vandalized on a regular basis.  Finding something durable enough is going to be expensive. 

We are happy with the outcome. What do you think?

Welcome to the Eltrym Theater blog!

Now seems like a good time to start our blog. I've been thinking about it for a long time, but I thought that perhaps our customers wouldn't want to hear about the day to day business of running a theater (as bizarre as it often is). But now it seems that life is getting a bit more interesting.

We are finally making headway with this old building.  Have you driven by lately?  Over the last few weeks we have been able to thrown on a fresh and BOLD coat of paint. Soon, I'll post some before and after pictures of some things we have done. It might surprise you. It surprises me every time I pull the "before" pictures up on my computer.

In seven weeks (or a bit sooner, hopefully) Dan & I will become first-time parents. You will get to witness the adventure that is being a self-employed parent.  I am a little nervous about working the opening of Harry Potter with baby in tow.  Somehow, we will make it work.

I'll also keep you updated on upcoming films, our weekly schedule, and interesting bits of Hollywood gossip.

Enjoy!
