Taking the Kids Back with Summer FiOS Friday Movie Nights!

You would not believe what was said to me the other day! My daughter and her best friend Ty are in my car, I was going through the radio stations when 50 Cent’s “In Da Club” came through and I turned up the volume, thinking I’m all cool and all…singing along… I guess rapping along?! Ty says, “Oh Lord! Old people music.” If you could imagine my jaw dropping… HOLD UP! 50 Cent is “old people music”?! When did that happen?!

In true parenting form of course, that only made me turn up the volume more for the full impact of:

Go, go, go, go go, go, go, shawty
It’s your birthday
We gon’ party like it’s yo birthday
We gon’ sip Bacardi like it’s your birthday

Man! Old people music! I call that good music and this calls for some schooling. We OLD? No no, that’s why everyone’s bringing back the classics and we’re starting with some movies that started it all! FiOS On Demand has all of them and more. The movies playing at Theater Chan this summer include:

  • Star Wars – To get them hungry for more, it’s Princess Leia and Hans Solo. Give respect to the original.
  • ET – ET phone home.
  • The Karate Kid – Danny LaRusso doing his crane kick with the beautiful California ocean as his back drop.
  • The Breakfast Club – Molly Ringwald and Anthony Michael Hall are everything! Saturday detention? What’s that?
  • Ghostbusters – yes the remake was cute, but really… Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray killed it!
  • Back to the Future – Marty McFly and his DeLorean were pretty fly!
  • Top Gun – Goose and Maverick, enough said.
  • SPEED – “Pop quiz, hotshot.” Just because you can feel the California heat from watching this movie and oh… Keanu Reeves.
  • BIG – They’ll never again know the BIG piano from FAO Schwartz and all the magical fun it was!
  • Independence Day – A race to save mankind led by Will Smith!
  • Indiana Jones – Oh Indy! You never disappoint and now my children have context for the Hollywood Studios attraction! Now they’re equally confused as to how Hans Solo is also Indiana Jones.
