MUBI GO to the movies

I recently got a tattoo of these opening lines from Frank O’Hara’s 1964 poem “Ave Maria”:

“Mothers of America

                                     let your kids go to the movies!”

A metaphorical approximation of a cinephile’s clarion call, to be sure, but one to which I still can’t help imagine today’s parents replying, “In this economy? Hell no.”
