While department stores and shopping malls post their after Christmas sales, time at our local movie theaters is becoming even more special (nobody is trying to return anything there). For the price of a ticket, which includes entertainment that always fits, you can travel the globe while traveling back in time (even as far back as the 1970s), live a secret life, take a walk along Wall Street, find the magic within frosty fairy tales and meet Walt Disney! Is that a gift you would return?
In a fierce, but festive fight to the finish line, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” keeps desolating the competition, once again from the #1 spot at the domestic box office with $29.8 million (it also holds the distinction, alongside “Fast and Furious 6” and “Gravity,” of being one of only three films in 2013 to hold the top spot three weekends in a row at the domestic box office).
Our warmhearted despite being “Frozen” friends are enjoying their sixth weekend at the movies from the cool but comfortable #2 spot with $28.8 million. The “Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues” to report on all the Hollywood happenings, this week from the #3 spot with $20.1 million. “American Hustle” hurried to the all-American land known as #4 with $19.5 million “The Wolf of Wall Street” greedily grabbed the attention of moviegoers from the street located at #5 with $18.5 million.
It has reportedly been an imaginative holiday weekend, indeed, thanks to priceless time spent in the land of make-believe.
From seaside days to starry nights, may your imagination find you hustling along the coolest walkway leading to the starriest places…
