After work, I went with Anthony to Cinemark to see the Christopher Robin movie. It was discount on Tuesday! Andrew and I joined the Cinemark movie club for 8.99 a month you receive 20% off snacks, credits towards tickets roll over each month, waived online fees, etc. Andrew and I used to go to the movies more often, but the movie club seems worth it. However, we have been streaming movies lately, on our firestick.
When I arrived at Anthony’s, he came outside of his apartment and got into my car. I figured I would just drive. I don’t mind. On our way to the movies, we talked about work and the new boy that entered his life. It is so good to catch up.
The parking lot was jam-packed. It was a Discount Tuesday Day after all. Once inside, we got popcorn, and I filled up my refill cup with Sprite. I made sure they scanned my membership so we could receive points. Anthony buttered the popcorn, and then the usher scanned our tickets.
After we got our seats, the theater wasn’t so packed, but there were a lot of children, of course. I couldn’t wait for this movie. I thought for sure it was going to make me cry. The previews before the movie were mostly Halloween movies for children. It is a habit when we got to the movies to comment on the previews and tell each other which ones we wanted to see and didn’t want to see. The Dumbo preview looks good, but it looks so sad too.
As the lights dimmed for the movie, Anthony looked at me and said, “This shit better be good.” We laughed, then it was time to get serious for the movie. I forgot how Winnie the Pooh starts, and where he lived in Hundred Acre Manor. There were so many parts of the movie that touched my heart and made me we want to be a kid again. Pooh wanted a traveling balloon. Christopher Robin (older now) says “You don’t need a traveling balloon.” He said, “I don’t need one, but I would like one. It would make me happy.” I almost lost it. Christopher Robin got him a red balloon. I was so touched the whole movie was so cute. I really enjoyed it.
However, there was this young child, who was screaming and sometimes crying throughout the movie. It is what it is. You will have children in a theater for a children’s movie. I tried to tune it out.
After the movie, we stepped outside, and it didn’t feel too humid. I drove us back home and we listened to music and talked more about this new boy. I am excited to hear what happens with this one. I hope something good comes out of it. I just want him to be happy. I really do. Once I got home, I told Drew all about the movie, and he was glad I had a good time and that I liked it. I told him he has to see it.
