Third Weekend

If you seem to have less green than a golf course in your wallet these days, you probably don’t want to spend your cold hard earned cash on a movie. Do not fret! Third weekend is the weekend after the regular Santa Barbara Film Festival events, and all of the movies are free. I decided to give up my precious curling time to go to a documentary, so I could give all of my loyal readers a taste of what goes down at these free movies.


Never been here before. I’m willing to bet you haven’t either. Where even is this.

I walked into a large audience in which 75% of the people were over 60. Apparently only older people are broke now. The movie I decided to watch was called “10 Billion: What’s on Your Plate?”. I didn’t really want to go to this movie mainly because I have a negative attitude towards subtitled movies. However, I figured just to go for the greater good of humankind.


What a view                                      People cleared out pretty quick

Now, I had a hard time deciding what my favorite part of the movie was. It was probably the part where they slit the chicken’s throats and gutting them by vacuuming up the innards. That was really nice. The goal of the movie was to find a way to feed the rapidly growing population. Unfortunately, every new idea seemed to have at least one really bad outcome. So basically, I came out of the movie realizing that we are probably going to end up going to war over some corn. So yea, I’d recommend third weekend.
