AMC Closing New Orleans & Baton Rouge Theaters As Tropical Storm Barry Approaches

Flash flood watches are in effect for parts of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and the western Florida Panhandle.
In regards to the box office, distributors aren't expected a major fallout from Barry with that portion of the Gulf Coast region generating less than 1% of the weekend's ticket sales.” />
Don't expect moviegoers in Louisiana's Gulf Coast to head to Sam Raimi's Category 5 hurricane/alligator movie Crawl this weekend, or any title for that matter. With Tropical Storm Barry expected to dump 25 inches of rain after it reaches landfall Saturday as a Category 1 hurricane, AMC is shutting down all New Orleans and Baton Rouge locations at 6 p.m. local time tonight, and they'll stay closed through Saturday.
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell is asking New Orleans residents to take shelter beginning at 8 p.m.
Bernard, Plaquemines and St. States of emergency have been declared in the Orleans, Jefferson, St. Charles parishes, with mandatory evacuations ordered in Jefferson and Plaquesmine parishes. New Orleans has a system of pumps that go into effect in flooding situations, but they'll only remove an inch of rainwater in the first hour of the storm, CNN reports.
Parts of New Orleans already are underwater with the Mississippi River, which is usually at 6 to 8 feet in midsummer, now at 16 feet. Barry is poised to push the river's level to 19 feet — a measure not seen since February 1950, per CNN and the Weather Channel.

Luke Bryan – Hooked On It

[Verse 1]
First time I tied a plastic worm and felt him on the other end
It was get the net, get him in the boat
Yeah buddy, I was hooked on it
First time I heard Chattahoochee on the speakers of my radio
I was topping off the tank on my old tune tone it
I was hooked on it
[Chorus]
Hooked on the feeling of a summer in the south
Hooked on the dust flying up from a plow
Hooked on them blue eyes, hair falling down
Hooked on her then, still hooked on her now
So many things where I grew up
Once you get a little, you can’t get enough
This small town life runs through my blood
And I’m hooked on it
[Verse 2]
The first time I got that Gulf Coast white sugar sand on my feet
Saw the sunshine dancing on that clear blue water
I was hooked on it
First time I pulled me a long neck bottle from the bottom of a bucket of ice
As soon as that cold beer hit my lips, I was hooked on it
[Chorus]
Hooked on the feeling of a summer in the south
Hooked on the dust flying up from a plow
Hooked on them blue eyes, hair falling down
Hooked on her then, still hooked on her now
So many things where I grew up
Once you get a little, you can’t get enough
This small town life runs through my blood
And I’m hooked on it
Come on! [Bridge]
Like a Friday payday honky tonk buzz
I gotta have a little more of it just because
I keep coming back to the good stuff, ’cause I’m hooked on it
[Chorus]
Hooked on the feeling of a summer in the south
Hooked on the dust flying up from a plow
Hooked on them blue eyes, hair falling down
Hooked on her then, still hooked on her now
So many things where I grew up
Once you get a little, you can’t get enough
This small town life’s all in my blood
And I’m hooked on it
Yeah, I’m hooked on it
I’m hooked on it
