Star Trek 2009
Sunday, November 22
1PM: buffet opens | 2 & 6PM: film screenings
Mickey’s Bar & Grill
179 Central Street, Lowell
Mike Doyle is an AVID movie buff. He’s also the proprietor of Mickey’s Bar & Grill. Several months ago, Mike began showing Sunday afternoon movies at his restaurant to try drawing a different crowd (and to whet his appetite for classic films!) Though we and a few others supported the effort, it didn’t quite pan out. But Mike isn’t one to give up on the local film scene yet: he’s trying it all again, only this time, with a buffet lunch to boot. His brand new Sunday Buffet & a Movie series kicked off last week with the latest Transformers installment. While most of Mike’s movies are bigger Hollywood fare, we here at the LFC aren’t going to say “indie, please.” To be honest, it’s all for the love of film, and if there’s another guy in town trying to do what we love — share film with the City — then we are ALL for it!
Truth be told, Mike has a pretty interesting lineup. And LowellFilmGrl plans on being there today for his fabulous screening of Star Trek 2009 — one of my absolute favorite blockbusters of this year. (I’m even giving up my Sunday football!)
If you DO come out today or on a future Sunday, make sure you seek out Mike and say thanks — he’ll appreciate it. Hope we see you at a future Mickey’s film!
