She's so subtle.
After eating delicious fajitas at Lupe Tortilla (which has now earned a spot in our Tex-Mex rotation) we made our way to Cinemark to see the new movie RED.
I am a sucker for spy movies.
Plus seeing Helen Mirren wielding a machine gun was priceless. She does everything with class. Bruce Willis was actually somewhat low-key and not all Die Hard-y, so it was highly enjoyable. Mary-Louise Parker was quirky and adorable, John Malkovich always plays the best lunatics and Morgan Freeman rounded out their ragtag spy team perfectly. Scott and I always rate movies on whether they are full theater price worthy, matinee worthy or wait for the DVD worthy. We both agreed it was worth the full price, though we would have certainly caught the matinee if we could have.
When we arrived at the theater Scott immediately began to stress when he saw the lines in front of the ticket windows.
It's so romantic to be dropped off in front of the theater while your husband parks the car so you won't risk missing the previews.
As I bypassed the long lines and stepped inside to wait my brief turn at the automatic ticket thingies I wondered why more people don't use them. Why do they feel obligated to stand in a line outside, in all forms of weather, to purchase tickets from a disgruntled teenager mumbling through a plastic hole? I waited for one other couple to buy their tickets before it was my turn and I had our tickets in my hot little hands by the time Scott came in. We had plenty of time to find seats and see the previews.
It makes or breaks a marriage.
Seen any good movies lately? Do you feel all is lost if you miss the previews? Do you use the automatic ticket thingie or buy your tickets outside the theater?
