we are a movie going family. we were before we moved and that hasn’t changed. i think part of what makes it enjoyable to go to the movies here is that it’s something familiar. a movie theatre is a movie theatre – sort of. in america we don’t stand up to honor the president right before the movie begins, but here we do do that for the king. and in america there aren’t thai subtitles across the bottom of the screen, but we don’t even see those anymore. and in america the commercials that come on before the previews are in english – as are all of the previews. but other than that, it’s pretty much the same. you can get popcorn and a coke. well, that’s a bit different, too, because you don’t spend $15 dollars on popcorn and cokes for two people here – it’s much cheaper here, maybe around $4 or $5. and when you get your drink in america you can’t get a fancy topper like you can here. and the kids are big fans of the fancy topper. they usually go along with whatever animated movie is currently out or getting ready to come out. like right now the fancy topper is from the soon to be released movie up. and it’s a pretty cool topper. and it also made drinking through a straw somewhat hazardous.
in the past year we’ve managed to acquire the a pretty impressive topper collection.
and not all of them are included in this picture, because we can’t find them all.
and i’m not really so certain this is something to be proud of.
