Nothing goes better with zombies than beer   —   Portland

There's a small second-run movie theater down the street from our apartment. We'd heard wonderful things about the place from a few locals, mostly about how you can drink beer and eat pizza while watching a movie, so of course we had to check it out for ourselves. The movie 28 Weeks Later popped up on the marquee and since I hadn't seen it yet it was the perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one beer. First off, the tickets are $3.00. That's right New Yorkers, take a moment to let that sink in. Then there's the concession stand which not only has the classics like popcorn and licorice, but also pizza and beer. I said beer, right? There was beer. We had about eight choices of which kind of beer we wanted and then we had to decide if we wanted a pitcher of it or just a glass. I was enjoying the movie already and it hadn't even started yet. After grabbing two glasses of some alien beer we were going to try and some nice salty popcorn, we made our way to the seats through this beautiful grand looking lobby. When we get inside the actual theater we were greeted by gorgeous architecture, amber lighting from the hanging glass lights, and tables! Our seats were comfortable and my feet didn't stick to the floor, and right in front of the row of seats was a long bar-like table bolted to floor. There was plenty of room between the seat and the table so no awkward middle-of-the-movie bathroom maneuvers were necessary, you could just walk on by. Check out their photo gallery.

The movie 28 Weeks Later was awesome. It may be better than the first one but it's hard to speak objectively on that because I've seen the first one one too many times. But its sequel, man, there are some gruesome scenes. This one scene in particular, well, I've seen my fair share of horror films and I've never seen anything so horrific. The movie does a good job at making the viewer care for its characters, and then does and even better job at slaughtering them all. The reaction isn't just a horrified one, it's a heartbreaking one as well, which is why the movie is so effective. For any zombie or horror fan, this movie is a must see.

Not sure what chickweed is ...

I don't recall how much beer was. We bought two glasses and some popcorn and it was less than $10. Cheaper than soda and popcorn at a regular theater, that's for sure.
