Star Wars at the Symphony

It was fun getting to watch Star Wars with a live symphony.  It’s definitely a cool experience, and one that is very family friendly.  I saw lots of families with small kids so for a kid appropriate movie, I definitely recommend the experience.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child the Play in San Francisco!

So the play Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is headed to San Francisco this October through May of next year.  Pre-sale tickets started on Tuesday and today tickets have officially opened to the public.  Well, I didn’t get tickets on Tuesday like I’d hoped and then tried again on Wednesday with no luck. But today, I tried one more time and finally scored some tickets!  Woohoo!

I can’t believe how far out I have to wait for the show though.  Most of the early months have already been sold out so I just randomly clicked on available dates for May 2020 and I got the tickets that I wanted.  Ok, so I’m not a crazy die hard Harry Potter fan, although I did line up at midnight for the release of book 7, but I wasn’t willing to spend more than the cheapest seats available.  For those interested, go get tickets!

Reviving the Love for Movie Watching in Theaters – Showplace ICON Theatres

It’s been awhile since we’ve gone to the movies.  When my husband and I were still dating, our favorite thing to do was see a movie.  Since getting married, we hardly ever go and when we do, it’s usually for blockbuster hits like Avengers, Thor, or even Star Wars.  I think in general, movie-going has waned for us because prices have gone up exponentially despite the same movie-going experience. That is until the reclining seats came into the mix.  I’m lucky to live by 2 theaters offering such an amenity, and it seems reclining seats are becoming a standard, at least here in the Bay.  But now the new theater in town, called Showplace ICON, boasts of reclining seats with a heat warming option.  Yes folks, heat warming!  I just love the innovation happening right now.  I mean thank you to whoever allowed such a neat feature to be put in place, because usually I’m cold in the theaters.  But it gets better.  The Showplace ICON in Mountain View offers food service that is much more than your standard hot dog, nachos, or popcorn fare.  They offer real meals with the option of eating at a table or while watching your movie.  It does get pricey though, and you can easily spend an arm and leg for this experience.  But don’t fret because they also offer Tuesday night specials where all movies are priced for $6 each ticket.  And it’s such a steal because normal ticket prices are $18 a pop.  So for those interested, check out an Icon theater and enjoy a movie in comfort!

We recently watched the movie Alita.  Please feel free to share the latest movie you saw in theaters and comment about your experience below.  Thanks for stopping by!
