At the Movies: Creative Prompt

Do you remember the first movie you saw in a theater? The first movie date you had? How about the first DVD movie you bought? The movie based on a favorite book? A musical that had you singing for days afterwards? A movie you walked out on? A scary movie you barely saw because you could not watch most of it? How about the first movie that really resonated with you, one in which you wondered how part of your soul had been filmed without you knowing?

For this week's creative prompt, write/paint/sew/draw/etc. about an experience you have had with a movie, movies in general, a movie theater, your job at a movie theater or in the movies, a movie star, or a quotation from a movie.

You can also respond to this glorious Edward Hopper painting from 1939, entitled New York Movie.

Enjoy a day at the movies. I also highly recommend Opposable Thumbs: How Siskel & Ebert Changed Movies Forever by Matt Singer, even if you are not old enough to remember them.

New York Movie by Edward Hopper, 1939
