Theater Thursday

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday! We are on the other side of Christmas but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate one last time before this year ends. This week's featured movie is, Serendipity.
Serenipity stars John Cusack as Jonathan Trager and Kate Beckinsale as Sara Thomas. Both live in New York City and they both happen to be at Bloomingdale's looking for a Christmas present for their significant others. They both happen to meet while trying to buy the same pair of gloves. Even though they are involved with other people they feel a mutual attraction and end up having ice cream together at Serendipity III. Sara deeply believes in fate and Jonathan is so attracted to her he will believe in anything she says. When Sara writes her phone number in a book and sells it to a book store she says when it comes back to him that's when the universe will bring them back together. At the same time Jonathan's phone number get's put on the back of a five dollar bill.

Several years later Jonathan is having his engagement party... with his fiancé Halley. At the same time on the other side of the country in San Francisco, Sara has just gotten engaged. As the wedding dates for both couples near they are both starting to have a little cold feet. Sara decides to journey back to NYC with her friend Eve for one last horary... at least that's what Eve thinks. Sara is actually back in NYC to find Jonathan. Yet she doesn't know his last name because she's never found the five dollar bill. While she's running around NYC hoping that fate will bring them together, Jonathan is having his rehearsal. At the end of the rehearsal Halley gifts him a grooms gift... a book that he always opens up in bookstores but doesn't own. Guess what's inside? Sara's name and number.

What will happen now? Will Sara and Jonathan finally end up together or will fate not have it in the cards.. Watch and find out!
