January–Popcorn & Movie in Historic Theatre

I went over the crazy complication over our botched January date in my overview blog of the 12 Months of Preplanned dates that I gifted to Kit for Christmas. I finally got things worked out! The theatre gave me complimentary tickets to the popcorn & a movie feature that we chose and, to my surprise, gave me the gift card for my trouble. They had awesome response time to my problem when I called them.

Sorry for the overly-cheesy upshot selfie here. It was the best I could manage. I really didn’t want to show up late. The two dollars was for our boxes of popcorn. We ended up spending about five bucks on concessions because we wanted candy and drinks too. I always feel better buying things from a not for profit arts group anyway.

The theatre was super dark (as it should be), but I managed another cheese photos with bright orange tix and popcorn.
The movie was the 1930s Little Princess starring Shirley Temple. Eerie as it was, she passed away within a week after our date. When I was a kid I had watched the 1990s version which is a bit more fairy tale-ish. This was fun because the whole time I was comparing the two versions. Kit had seen a bunch of Shirley Temple movies as a kid.

Even though the movie itself wasn’t very romantic it turned out to be quite an enjoyable date. The theatre wasn’t overly packed, ate cheap concessions,  movie was a little grainy and the historic auditorium just added to the fun.
We don’t have many more day left in February to do our Blindfolded cookie baking date, but hopefully we can get it done before March!

Date Movie: Army of Darkness

armyofdarknessKitandKatOkay, maybe this isn’t the best date movie for every couple….Yes, it is.

Big shout out to my siblings, they were gracious enough to foot the bill for a late supper and the movies!! You guys rock!!
Bruce Campbell at his finest in this cult horror-comedy was being shown in the city as a midnight movie!
We both look a little raggedy in this picture because we were really exhausted. We tried and failed to both, nap mid afternoon and then chugg lots of caffeine as the night wore on. Even sleepy, we had a great time! It has been a few years since I have seen Army of Darkness so every line was a roll on the floor laugh again!

Apparently there was no mention of watching horror or any Halloween movies on my Fall Bucket List—SO I FIXED IT. I feel like it was very seasonable and a great excursion. I realize that there are people in the world who have not seen this film. Skip Rocky Horror Picture Show and The Big Lebowski. This is where it is at.

Hail to the King, baby
