As an official Ambassador of the Couch Fest Films 2014 Festival, I am pleased to announce that the theme for this week’s Monday Movie Meme is inspired by The Laundry Café at One & Olney Square Plaza, where over one dozen short movies from around the globe are showing in Philadelphia on Saturday, December 6th in the afternoon: Spin Cycles.
Share on your blog or in the comments section, movies featuring scenes where people are washing clothes. The characters or films you reference can be anywhere…in a Laundromat, at sea, in a laundry room, dormitory, etc. you get the picture. Only two movies that fit this bill come to mind for me, including “DIRTY LAUNDRY (AIR IT OUT),” a comedy about colorful characters who find themselves asking questions about life, morality and normality while washing clothes in an all-night Laundromat at 2:13am. They become clean of their life problems by nights end. Directed by Temple University graduate Shannon Newby, this movie was made in Philadelphia.
There is also a laundromat scene in "THE TOWN” where a guy gets chummy with the manager of a bank he just robbed, while she tries to wash a co-workers blood off her shirt in this heist movie directed by Ben Affleck.
What movies have YOU watched that feature scenes where people are washing clothes?
Couch Fest is a cozy shorts film fest that brings world-class short movies out of the cinema and into non-traditional venues like living rooms, boats, community centers, and more. Meet your neighbors and see the best short films of the year.
Couch Fest Philadelphia is showing at The Laundry Café at One & Olney Plaza Shopping Center (Front and Olney sts).
