Our Anniversary gift to each other was to go to the premier viewing of Star Wars yesterday. We had been racking our brains how we were going to arrange the practicalities of seeing the film on opening day. Our local Theaters are too small for 3D films. We would have to travel to Stockholm, Gothenberg or even Malmö to see it in the past. We would have expense of travel, staying with friends, arranging dog sitting… Scheduling was an issue. We said okay we will miss the premier because of the logistics. We have been trying to arrange a trip and purchasing movie ticket…
We were in town for the day. My husband stepped outside for a cigarette and walked past a local Theater. Low and behold they were showing Star Wars in 3 D no less. This was close to us. The tickets were cheaper than the big city. We wouldn’t need a dog-sitter…. He waited to tell me, when we got in the car to drive home.
I called and discovered No tickets would be sold in advanced. It was first come first serve. The tickets go on sale an hour before the show. If you can believe it. We got there 15 minutes before the ticket office opened. We got 3rd row center seats. It just doesn’t get better than that. This is what we wanted to do for our Anniversary. We just wanted a date night. Neither of us have seen a 3D movie before.
I am ashamed to admit it, but the last time we have been to the movies has been close to 7 years ago. It was the movie ” twilight”. I have to admit that it was a disappointment. Don’t get me wrong I have watched the Twilight trilogy on TV. It is not what I consider a block buster. We had so wanted to see the movie Avatar in 2009, but we couldn’t find anywhere close to us that showed it in 3D. We are big Sci-fiction fans.
I have to admit that I loved the 3D cinema experience. I guess if you are going to see a 3D film for the first time, Star Wars is the film to see. I have to say I was worried if Disney was going to live up to our expectation. I have to tip my hat to them, because they have exceeded my expectations.
