The Broadway Centre Theater: 500 Days of Summer

August 14, 2009


The Broadway Centre Theater 111 East Broadway, Salt Lake City, UT 84111

After you have gone to the major theaters and seen the big new movies of the year such as Transformers, Terminator, and-there is no new Batman coming out-you may believe there are no more good movies to see.  So in desperation you may turn to Beverly Hills Chihuahua or the newest Nicholas Cage flick and with much regret as you leave the theater somewhat sick from the time you have just wasted that you will never get back.  I will point out to you my friends that there are other choices than the tripe Hollywood tries to feed us year after year.  Ever wonder what happened to all those movies winning the little golden statues every year? Or where the heck you can see the movies that make all the noise at Sundance?  Well heck take a look at The Broadway Centre Theater in downtown Salt Lake, over the years I have seen many a great flicks at this theater that you simply cannot see anywhere else.  Most recently, movies such as Rescue Dawn, starring Christian Bale, and Pans Labyrinth which won numerous awards.

Just this week I went to view 500 Days of summer The Broadway Centre Theater itself is a great place! Let me say first of all that the parking is great.  If you can’t find a spot right in front of the theater on the street, the Broadway does provide a parking garage that is connected to the theater. And best of all, they validate your parking at no cost to you.  It is a place you don’t have to worry that you may be sitting on some Pee Wee Herman wanna be jerks skeet.  And your feet don’t stick to the floor, which I feel is a bonus.  It really is a nice theater where you can see great movies that for whatever reason don’t go to the major places but yield a lot of attention.  So see ya at the show!

500 Days of Summer

Just this week I went to view 500 Days of summer.  As I begin this review of the movie understand I am not a liker of chick flicks very often.  Love stories are not usually my bag either.  500 Days of Summer stars Joseph Gordon Levitt (kid from 3rd Rock From the Sun) and Zooey Deschanel (Katie Perry looking chick from Elf).  At the beginning, 500 Days of Summer claims to “not be a love story,” however, I beg to differ.

500 Days of Summer comes out to be just like any other show of that genre.  So as far as chick flick love story movies go from a tough critic of them I would say it’s FAIR.  It does have some funny lines and it is not the type of movie you struggle through.  So if you think these type of flicks are your thing then perhaps it will be a great one for you. If you’re tired of the same ol’ same ol’ love story, well this one is a bit different (I don’t want to give it away so check it out to see why) but is still a love story.  Savvy?
