It seems like years since I have seen a movie in a cinema. I was put off by pushy people and the over enthusiastic air conditioning. After lunch on Sunday we braved the Palace in Leichhardt.
Armed with popcorn, wine and a generous cheeseboard we took our pre-booked seats to see Interstellar. To my left, a space claimer (no pun intended) sat down in the chair next to me. By the way he behaved I think I must have been in his seat. This immediately set me into overcompensation “not to make a noise” mode.
I found the film spectacular, believable and the music awesome. I did not dare to break the spell of the the silence of space by munching on a brie loaded cracker. The only hiccup was me creating a constellation on the pristine black carpet at my feet. The contents of the box on my lap tipped as I reached for the wine bottle on the floor. I managed to hold it together as the space-rancher next to me jumped as he felt light balls of corn tumble down his right leg.
No one was harmed in writing this post.

Funny and delightfully described/shared, Robert. I’m humored to learn that balls of corn tumbled down his leg. How did you without warranted snickering? 🙂
I was mortified to think that I may have interrupt the poor man’s concentration 😦
Can’t wait to watch it!
I enjoyed Interstellar as well, and I’m glad to find someone else who liked it. Great post!
Thank you for commenting
I loved the story…your story…lol. Better to spill the popcorn rather than the wine on him. I loved the movie as well.
Wait, …, you took a cheeseboard into a cinema? Is this an Australian thing?
The cinema has cheese and charcuterie boards for sale, for me, much more enjoyable than ice cream and sweets.
