Drove to the city (SF) to watch the movie The Irishman. Not playing on too many screens since it is 3.5 hours long. Good film. Afterwards run to the Golden Gate Bridge and back to The Marina area, beautiful day in the city...like 70 degrees. (Sun 17)

I was just reading that the major movie chains boycotted the movie because it was going to be streaming on Netflix starting Nov 27th. A shame because it looks like a great "theatre" movie, especially if it's 3.5 hours long. I'm really into "home theatre" but some movies like this I would prefer to see on the "big screen". 11/18 8:29 am
There are same independent theaters showing it. This is one movie you need to see on the big screen. 11/18 9:06 pm
You won’t want to miss this one the cast is fabulous. This should be right up there with Goodfellas! 11/21 4:20 pm
