Wondering where all our hits were coming from last week, we learned Serious Eats and NJ.com took notice of our commitment to covering Bayonne and Jersey City dining news. We also learned NJ.com has a site devoted to Bayonne news and among the news last week - not last decade, last week - is that Bayonne's Frank Theaters now offers movie tickets online through Movietickets.com. Too good to be true? Yep. Unless Bayonne moviegoers are so dedicated every show is sold out, no, they're not selling tickets online. But Bayonne still has a movie theater so, you know, that's progress.
Also, you know how every Manhattan theater offers matinee pricing Friday through Sunday and on holidays? Frank Theaters offers matinee pricing Monday through Thursday not including holidays. The town really is that backward.
As for making a movie in Bayonne, there's a Film It In Bayonne website. It hasn't been updated since 2005 and it's only partially completed. That's something Leo Smith, wrestling coach turned high school vice principal and Bayonne Board of Education media liaison, could maybe work on while trying to get his brother elected mayor to at least attempt to prove he's qualified for whatever promotion he gets next.
