Good morning all! [Jul. 20th, 2005|11:12 am]
Jasmine Becket-Griffith
Last night we went with my sister Amber, her husband Chris, Lesley and Jared to an advance screening of "March of the Penguins" at the Enzian theatre!

I had a lot of fun - it was a good movie (kind of sad at times though, poor penguins), and the theatre was awesome! It is the kind of theatre where you sit at tables instead of in rows and it's an excellent restaurant - they had a ton of vegetarian/vegan offerings, and it was all delicious - http://www.enzian.org/ (their menu is HERE). I'm totally going back there many times - what a neat place. It plays mostly independent films and film festivals, etc.

I'm going to do a few mini paintings today and catch up on some paperwork and some emails (I'm woefully behind on all of that stuff). So it will be a busy work day for me.

You can watch me work HERE!

It was a very sweet movie =) It had some sad parts, but nothing worse than a lot of nature shows on TV. Poor penguins - they always look so cold!

Thank you Sandra! It was pretty neat to eat such a nice meal in a theatre instead of just popcorn!

That place sounds really neat! What did you guys have to eat?
I keep hearing that the penguin movie is very good but sad. Is it too sad? I'm kind of scared to see it.

It was so cool Chichi - you would have liked that place! We split a fruit & cheese plate for an appetizer, and then Matt got the Ginger BBQ Tofu pannini and I got the avacado flatbread. It was all really good!

I think you would like the movie - it has such sweet things in it. There are some sad parts, but not as bad as most nature shows on TV really. Penguins are such good parents - the mommy & daddy penguins go through so much for their babies!

sounds so cool....

Jasmine, I just read the menu sounds yummy, I was getting hungry. I like the idea of the theatre like a dinner theatre except movies are shown not a play. sounds cool.

oooh we have something like that here, too. we went there for my birthday one year and it was awesome! they not only had tables but they had a couple rows of sort of counter-type things, if you just want to sit and have a drink and watch the movie. plus, the place is really deco and swank. hrm! now i wanna go back! ;)

I'm glad you had a good time! I saw the previews for that movie. The penguins are so sweet! :) That theater sounds awesome! We had one kind of like that her but I don't think it's near as nice. I saw your mini earlier :D It looked like your eyes! I posted a question for you when you've got a few minutes, pretty please :)

Penguins are cute...hehe

I saw it on Inside edition where they were talking about how they filmed it. the little penguins are soo cute, and they came right up the camera's.

How is it sad...they dont die..do they??:(

Re: Penguins are cute...hehe

It was a really good movie!

It does show some penguin eggs and an older penguin who didn't make it through the cold, and there was a scary part where there was a seal chasing them, but it wasn't too bad. Most of the penguins make it out okay and their little babies are so sweet and fuzzy!
