If you didn’t see Life of Pi while it was in theaters last year, you missed out. The epic story of a young man who survives a disaster at sea only to find himself inside a small boat with a Bengal tiger may have been bested in the acting and writing categories at the 2013 Oscars, but its vivid, colorful cinematography and detailed CGI made it worth shelling out $10 for a ticket.
You could rent the DVD and watch it on your pathetically tiny TV set at home, but it just wouldn’t be the same.
Luckily, there’s one more chance to catch the Ang Lee masterpiece on the big screen. The Shops at Midtown (3401 N. Miami Ave., Miami) have brought back the Moonlit Movies series, in which films are shown at the shopping center’s Fountain Plaza for free. Bring a folding chair and some snacks and settle in early to get a prime viewing spot. No, it’s not the full 3-D luxury theater experience. But hey, you had your chance.
