At Christmas time we were given a voucher for Vue cinema and this evening decided to finally get around to use it. The reason it has taken us so long was that our closest cinema before moving was Show Case but since the big relocation a couple of months ago our closest is now Vue.
With not very much choice of films we decided to watch Sicario.
We arrived at the cinema and decided to get in the line to get our Ben and Jerry’s ice cream sundaes which has become a cinema tradition. We stood behind one other customer and waited. This cinema had a very long single counter beginning with the ice cream and then continuing to display the various foods and drinks and tickets very unlike what we are used to.
The strange thing as we waited in line this whole long counter was manned by one person who sold the food, tickets and ice creams. The cinema worker served one person tickets and then someone else turned up and she served them before slowly making her way down to the ice cream section. The cinema worker firstly serve the customer who was in front of us and then finally after what seemed like a life time my husband and I.
My husband and I enjoyed our ice cream sundaes but prefer how the other cinema many miles away do theirs. Rather than using cold sauce like the slow cinema experience today they normally put a hole into the ice cream and pour hot sauce I go for chocolate every time.
What also was disappointing is that I asked for a few nuts and chocolate polar bears as my topping like I normally would do not this cinema worker wasn’t very accommodating and I only had a tiny smattering of nuts.
I was surprised that on a Friday evening that only one person was working and I’m pleased we weren’t in a hurry because if we had been we would of had no chance because of the extremely slow service.
After climbing what seemed like an endless amount of stairs we watched annoyingly around 30 minutes of mainly adverts before the start of the film which was nothing to write home about.
The most positive aspect was the tiny Ben and Jerry’s jumper which my husband got with his three scoop sundae which the cinema worker forgot about despite the large posters. I prompted her with regards to this and used the jumper on my ice cream tub.
Think the jumper is a little small for Tinkerbell but I’m sure I’ll find a way of using this festive jumper.
Happy Friday Friends!
