Snowy Cinema

By Jen Chaney

It's snowing, people! Like real flakes.

Someone really should alert the media about this.

Oh wait, we are the media.

Seriously, we hope the inclement weather hasn't caused too much panic yet. There's still plenty of time to stock up on toilet paper before the streets get coated with the white stuff. Unfortunately, we Going Out Gurus can't recommend the places that offer the best deals on TP, bread and milk. That's the purview of the Going Out to Grocery Stores Gurus, who run a blog in GoG Bizarro World.

We can tell you that one of the best things to do on a snow day is hole up in the warm, popcorn-scented environment of a movie theater. Lots of local cineplexes are located near Metro stations, which means you don't have to tackle the roads with all those stupid people who can't drive in the snow. (Because it's always the other people who can't drive in bad weather, not you.) With the holiday film season in full, for-your-consideration swing, there is plenty to see. "Capote," "Walk the Line" or "Pride & Prejudice" would all make pleasant diversions on a day when the weather outside is frightful.

Isn't AMC Hoffman in Alexandria near a Metro stop on the yellow line? It wasn't included on the list.
