Are you ready for XanaCineHoliday?

Look who showed up to watch Bridge of Spies with me! #xanacineholiday

Melissa and The Elusive Fes during our November XanaCineHoliday

Last November, we had a trial run of a new thing called XanaCineHoliday: Windy would camp out in a theater in Texas, and Melissa would camp out in a theater in Minneapolis, and we’d both watch movies all day. It was a ton of fun, so now we’re doing the first official XanaCineHoliday! (Or maybe we’ll just call it XanaCineHoliday #2. We’re not sure yet.)

If you would like to participate, watch a movie — or several — on Saturday, February 20th. It doesn’t matter if you watch the movie in a theater or off a DVD, just watch a movie! When you’re done, tell us what you watched! You can comment here on the web site, you can comment on our Facebook page, or you can tweet at us. We’ll be posting with the #xanacineholiday hashtag.

Alternately, if you’re in the Minneapolis area and have nothing better to do on the 20th, here’s Melissa’s tentative schedule. Feel free to show up and say hi!

Noon: Deadpool (Willow Creek)
2:50 PM: Hail, Caesar! (Willow Creek)
4:45 PM: Room (Willow Creek)
7:05 PM: The Big Short (Willow Creek)
9:50 PM: The Witch (Willow Creek)
Midnight: Ex Machina (The Uptown) (maybe)

Episode 93: Jaunty, Yet Evil

0093 XanacineholidayThis week, dear listeners, we talk about NEW MOVIES! That’s right! It’s XanaCineHoliday! We both spent an entire day in a movie theater so we could talk about movies that are in release right now. A lot of them are good, too!

If you would like to drink along, we recommend either Winehaven Minnesota Grapewinds Port or Yellowtail Sweet Red Roo. (Clearly, we both had a sweet tooth going this week.)

Show notes behind the cut!
