The Moxie Cinema’s blog is one of my favourites. Today, they write about a great, original wedding proposal that occurred on their premises. The prospective groom arranged for a private showing of Say Anything, his girlfriend’s favourite movie:
We gave Jeff and Michelle some complimentary concession goods and started up the film, with Michelle still none the wiser to what was about to unfold. Jeff, however, was way ahead of the game. He had copied the first hour and seventeen minutes of the movie, and then, during the famous scene when John Cusack holds the boom box above his head, Jeff spliced in himself, complete with a brown trench coat, holding a boom box above his head. Then the words: “Michelle, will you marry me?” splashed across the screen. I drew up the lights, Jeff dropped to his knee, and Michelle screamed with excitement.
How great is that? I like a proposal that depends on an 80’s teen film for its success.
