T he regular movie experience has been ruined for me forever.
How could waiting in long lines to buy or pick up our tickets, waiting in another line to get popcorn and drinks in paper cups, sitting in normal, somewhat uncomfortable seats, and have people moving and talking all around us ever hold a candle to this?……..
My own comfy recliner with a big soft blanket to curl up in right next to Neil’s recliner with a small table in the middle to hold our martini glass filled with peanut M&Ms and our glasses of Coke Light. Not to mention the call button that will bring a waiter right to our
seats recliners in case we decide we’d like a glass of wine, coffee, dessert, hors d’oeuvres or some other offering off the day’s menu.
And before you jump to the conclusion that I’ve bribed my boys to act as waiters as I lounge at home watching a movie off of Apple TV, while not a bad idea, you have to see the Golden Village Theaters Gold Class.
It was phenomenal! I put my recliner foot rest up and wrapped up in the blanket (the theater was air conditioned just enough to be cool but not cold) sipped my soft drink and snacked on M&Ms as I watched a good movie. We saw This Means War and it was funny! It’s not going to win awards for film making but a great date movie.
That’s the way all movie experiences should be.
Our only problem…now we’re spoiled. Who wants to go back to a normal theater after that????
I sure don’t and neither does Neil.
However, for the sake of keeping my boys level headed and down to earth (Yes, I’m aware that it is a near impossible feat) I will continue to take them to the normal theater down the street when we want to see something as a family.
Oh, the things I will do for the benefit of my children….my love for them knows no bounds.
From now on, though, date movies will be strictly Gold Class.
