Coming full Circle

Posted by Bobby Hankinson May 29, 2007 05:15 PM

Cleveland Circle is one of those places I've just never had a reason to visit. Sure, I've zoomed through it every now and again while riding the B-line or driving en route to Chestnut Hill, but I haven't had the chance to explore the area. Well, that all changed this weekend.

While the rest of the world, or at least a good chunk of it, went to see the latest "Pirates of the Caribbean," I decided it was high time I checked out "Georgia Rule." (And yes, it was just as deliciously terrible as I had heard.) The closest theater still showing it was the Circle Cinemas, so I and some friends headed over. The super-brightly lit lobby (and teeny, tiny auditorium -- no doubt the larger ones were occupied with big-budget three-quels) felt like an old discount theater and was just tacky enough to take in such a cheesy film.

I can't vouch for the concession stand because we filled up at Bangkok Bistro beforehand. The crispy pad thai I ordered came in a heaping mound and the prices were more than fair.

Between dinner, the movie, and a brief respite at the park, I realized I should spend more summer nights at Cleveland Circle.

But possibly a few less with Lindsay Lohan.
