How cool is Screen on the Green?

David: I love it. The movie selection is great, with the exception of The Wizard of Oz. I’m a big fan of the movie. However, they’ve shown that movie before. I really wish they would have chosen something else, since they select only five movies. People dress up for The Wizard of Oz, but I live in Midtown and I see people dressed up in blue gingham dresses and red ruby slippers almost every weekend. I’d love it if they would show Pink Flamingos.

Tamira: More things for the kids this year, like The Sound of Music, The Wizard of Oz. I’m bringing my son to that. And they started with something funny, Young Frankenstein. Psycho is a little weird. I can’t bring my son to that. I’ve never been a Psycho person. Not a lot of grown people like scary movies. I like Hitchcock, but Psycho never really made a lot of sense to me. It’s a corny movie.

Jeff: They made me take the dog home. The police officer then said there were many dogs, so they set aside a small area for them after I already left. I’m glad they have the dog area, but I wished I knew about it before I was sent home. If they’re going to enforce the laws about no dogs and no grills, they also have to enforce the laws about no high-back chairs. You know everybody moves around and works it out at the end of the day, but it is kind of annoying.
