Movie night in the cabin loft!

We are headed up to the log cabin tomorrow morning. We usually like to bring a movie or two to watch at night. Especially since we only get 2 t.v. channels up there. The loft is the perfect place - we lay out a blanket and some pillows, I pop some popcorn and then we dim the lights.

Anyways, so here's the movie Greg picked and thinks we're going to watch. (Did you doubt it was going to be an action movie?!)













But Marvin & I picked "On Golden Pond." By the way, thanks to those of you who reminded me of this movie and how the loons were in there. I can't wait to see this again with fresh eyes! (FYI - I put the Amazon link below in case you would like to get this too.) Are there any other movie classics you would recommend for the log cabin?

P.S. I have a blogger friend coming to visit me on Saturday for lunch. Can you guess who it is?!

That sounds like a perfect way to spend an evening at the cabin. I'm not much of a one for action movies, but "On Golden Pond" is always a favorite. Have fun!

It has been a long time since I watched that movie. I thought of it though when you talked about the Loons the other day. Well, I actually listened to them too.

I was one of the bloggers that mentioned On Golden Pond. And because your blog reminded me, I rented it and watched it last night. The loons play a HUGE part in the movie.
Hugs,
Penny

I bought On Golden Pond this past summer from the $5 stack at Walmart.

I would say Betsy and George, but they are way too far away to get there by lunchtime.

Michele - not Betsy & George. Someone a little closer!

Cedar - I can't wait to watch it!

Grammy - looking forward to hearing the loons again!

Penny- I do remember you telling me that and I'm so grateful! I can't believe I don't remember the Loons, but then again I think it's been 15+ years since i've seen it!

Joated - oh I'll still let him play his movie - but after mine! ha,ha!

Leedra - great deal! The surprise guest lives a lot closer...

Guess I'm going to have to rent that movie and watch it again. It's been years since I've seen it but I remember how I enjoyed it the 1st time. Have a great time at the cabin. -Sandy

"Alone In The Wilderness" by Dick Proenneke.
Also a good western is hard to beat!

Jen said...

Eventhough I know you'd love me to show up; I'm not. LOL

Is it Denise and Bill??
What do I win?

Jen said...

I have a second guess... Jessica is coming to play in the snow.
you know where to mail my prize. :)

Dawnie said...

I"ve no idea who is close to you to come visit..but have a great time!

On Golden Pond..so many years ago. Wasnt that kind of a sad heartwarming movie?

Shellmo said...

Sandy- I think that the movie will be great a 2nd time around!

Connie - I have that "Alone in the Wilderness" movie. Have watched it 10 times! Love it!

Jen - I need your final guess - you can't have 2. Maybe you'll get a prize....

Dawnie - definitely a bittersweet movie!

Denise said...

Oh my goodness, is Bill coming to see Marvin? I haven't seen 'On Golden Pond' in a long time. I sure hope that your guest is nice and doesn't track snow through your cabin. ;)

country gal said...

Love, Joy =D

Sounds like a wonderful time.Wish I could visit but to far away and to broke to travel. Have a wonderful weekend.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Well --it must be Jessica!!!! Thanks for all of the clues!!!

Wish it were George and me... I thought at first you were gonna fly down in your jet and pick us up...

I was another one who mentioned "On Golden Pond" a couple of times...I should definitely get a BIG prize....

Hope you enjoy that movie. I haven't seen it for YEARS.

Hugs and a bit of good luck staying awake and interested while watching Greg's movie choice!!! ha ha

JyLnC said...

I haven't a clue who is coming to visit but I wish it was me.

I have never seen On Golden Pond from start to finish. It's too sad but I may check it out the next time it's on cable, just to see the loons.

Have a great time!

This Country Girl said...

Your movie night sounds great! I like yours and Marvin's choice! :)

Enjoy your movie!

And I have no idea who is coming, but my first thought was Betsy. Have a great time with the mystery blogger! :)

Everytime I come to this blog, I think of "On Golden Pond" I love watching Katherine Hepburn calling the loons.

I have no guess as to who might be you at your log cabin...only wish it was ME!!

Enjoy the movies and lunch with your blogger guest.

Cam said...

How about "The Lakehouse" - Sandra Bullock & Keanu Reeves. Enjoy your lunch and movie!

Shellmo said...

Good guesses - it's Denise from Vintage Log Cabin (she's listed under my log dweller links) that's coming to visit!

George said...

I'll admit I wish it were Betsy and George coming to the cabin for lunch.

Sandy said...

well, how about Flawless and
Legends of the Fall....

Karen said...

Have you seen "A River Runs Through"? It was filmed in Bozeman, MT. My best friend has a vacation home there. That is where I go to get my "country" fix. It is God's country!!! Such a difference from Southern California.
Anyway, just a thought as to a movie you might enjoy watching.
Let me know if you get a chance to watch it! Enjoy your cabin!!!!! Karen

Peggy said...

2 movies you might enjoy are Wilderness Family and Wilderness Family 2. They leave their city life and live in a cabin in the mountains... really good movies! I have them both and love watching them over and over with the grands.
