Juno is a contender! Look out Pan’s Labyrinth

A fun little game we play at the Alamo South Lamar is what films have the highest gross of all time since the theater opened. Strangely, PAN'S LABYRINTH is still the #1 grossing movie of all time; leaving even STAR WARS and PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN in the dust. We're very proud that PAN'S is still top dog, but there's a new contender on the block. After this weekend, JUNO will topple the mightly LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE and take the number two slot and it is now within striking distance of PAN'S LABYRINTH.

Roger Ebert
named it his top film of 2007 and it was pretty high up on my own personal list. It's a perfect movie: great performances, great writing, great comedy and some very touching moments, none of which are played to strong so as to become schmaltz.

It looks like we'll be playing it at South Lamar for at least a couple more weeks, so if you haven't seen it yet, I can't recommend it highly enough.
