James Bond. And tea.

We went to the cinema last night.

On a date.

In Welshpool.

Cinema.

Date.

Welshpool.

See. Our social life is not over, simply because we have moved an hours drive away from any major towns.

The cinema in Welshpool is BRILLIANT. Screen One, where we watched Casino Royal (see Rhys' review, I enjoyed it, too. And can I just say "Daniel Craig! Pwworr!"), has about one hundred and fifty seats. And they sell mugs of tea for you to take in to the performance with you. Also there is an interval (presumably because they needed to change the reel on the projector) which I very much like. And it only cost four pounds. Five if you include the tea.

Did I mention that there was tea?

I am thirty six years old and my ideal date is going to a one hundred and fifty seat cinema in a small market town and drinking tea.

That is all.

  3. Never mind "Daniel Craig, phwooar!" was the tea any good? I assume so, as if it had been cack you'd have mentioned it.

    Glad you had a nice time.

  5. My daughter has admitted to a Serious Crush on Daniel Craig. I love the thought of a cinema where you can take your mug of tea. The newly opened theatre in Bungay promises films and I'm keenly looking forward to that as it's 17 miles to Norwich and I can't always be bothered in the evenings.

  7. I'm 36 years old, too, and that sounds like a mighty nice evening to me. In fact, Stewie and I are going to go see the movie together this coming weekend. Sadly, I doubt there will be tea. :-)

    I have trouble recognizing actors out of context. Several days ago I watched _Munich_ all the way through, thinking "Who is that incredibly hot man?" before seeing in the credits that it was Daniel Craig. Amazing that I could do that, considering all the media exposure he's getting right now!

  9. Sounds like an ideal evening to me! I am much, much older than you, but I have discovered that having simple tastes means that you are never bored (almost never, anyway), and you get so much more pleasure from life than do the people who must constantly have sophisticated amusements. Oh, dear, now I must break into song:
    "Give me the simple life!"

  13. I'm so glad you had a good date. You didn't say whether you got a snog as well, which shows you're a nice girl and not a kiss-and-tell girl, very admirable.
    I remember when they used to do tea and carrot cake at the Ritzy in Brixton. It's such a perfect accompaniment to a good fillum, much quieter than popcorn, I'm surprised it isn't more popular.

  17. The tea was very nice - Tetley, you know!

    ditdotdat - I AM a kiss and tell girl, but I am saving all that for my novel. Leave 'em wanting more, that's the trick :).

  19. yes, tea and Bond. Great combination. I wish our cinema did tea. I snook one in to the Bond movie, funny enough, from the cafe next door.
