Patricia and I went to see Mistress America, the new movie written by and starring Greta Gerwig, at this gorgeous old time movie theater last night. The movie was good, but the experience of being in a movie theater like this really made it special. Even the pop corn was like it used to be, before screens shrunk and popcorn was made according to a corporate recipe.
We didn't, but you can order cocktails, wine, and delicious food for consumption during the movie. The Oriental is one of the venues for the annual Milwaukee Film Festival (http://mkefilm.org/festival) taking place in a few weeks.
