Breakfast at Tiffany’s..


Walking into Campus Theater was much different now then my freshman and sophomore year.  I remember seeing a movie two years ago with my mom and we were both worried about the roof caving in on us in the lobby area. The inside was just all dirty, rundown, and was just not a nice setting. However, since they did the renovations, the new theater looked really nice. I liked the décor and the overall set up was nice as well (food stations, entrances into theater etc.). Also, I liked the fact that they were accepting BU IDs now which made the transaction much smoother and less capital intensive. After going through the line, I found my seat. The first thing I noticed was how big the theater was inside; it looked like a state of the art movie theater. Too bad it only had one theater inside the entire building.

The movie I saw was Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The movie was not my style as I prefer more action packed films. The lead actress, Holy, was quite a character; she was pretty, obnoxious, and funny all in one. She was a gold digger looking for an older rich man to settle up with. She was afraid of love and felt as if every man that expressed his love for her wanted to lock her up in a cage. However, the real problem was internal; she was locking herself up. She was afraid to love and be loved. She was confronted at the end of the movie by her lover in the movie, Paul. He claims he was a successful writer, but Paul was the male version of Holy. In other words, he was a gigolo. They were the same people, just opposite sex. They were both broke and looking for love with rich older people. The point of the movie is that love cannot buy happiness, but not having money at all is also a struggle. Paul saw something in Holy that connected the two of them and he thought he could help her help herself. It just so happened that he ended up falling and love with her. She too ended up opening up and coming around at the end of the movie as well.

    Thank you for realizing Paul’s fundamental sameness to Holly….

    Thanks for mentioning the fact they accept BUIDs because I did not know that. Besides the point though, after reading a lot of these posts about the Campus Theatre and looking at the film schedule I really respect the movies they chose to play during this festival. I think rather than garnering their choices towards college students they chose to pick a diverse group of films. It probably opened many people up to classic movies or just some older ones that they never had seen and never might have ever seen.

    Your first sentence is nonsensical. Please place the word “in” after the word “then”. Thank you Michael.
