So....on Saturday I went to see a movie. I had been looking forward to seeing it all week long and so once Saturday morning came, you could imagine how excited I was to actually go to the theater. So Saturday morning I got up and looked up movie times on Fandango. The time that I chose to see the movie at was 11:05 am. Remember that because that will come into play later. Well because I was just chilling at my apartment I did not leave with much time to get there and get tickets but I put my car in park at 11:05. I hurried over to the ticket counter and a lady was in front of me trying to buy tickets to the same show however because it was a new release passes are not allowed. So she kindly said "o ok well how about Pirates at 11:30 and so she used her pass on that show. Then I proceed to buy my ticket and enter my theater #3 and the previews have already started. And who do I see in the second row but the lady who just bought a ticket for Pirates! I was very tempted to turn her in but I figured it was not my place just find a seat and enjoy this movie that you have been waiting for. Well this would come back to haunt me. So I am enjoying thhe previews and then it does the little Walt Disney castle thing and I was thinking to myself thats weird because Oceans 13 isn't made by Disney, but huh maybe Disney bought the rights to it since the first two did so well, no big deal, (so i thought). Then it starts out with the gallows and a bunch of people in chains. I was thinking "this is familiar" but maybe it is another preview and it is for Pirates. Well 5 minutes into it I realized that it was the actual full length film. Then it clicked, maybe I was in the wrong theater because that lady was in the second row. I know what you are thinking, "how does someone walk into the wrong theater?" Well I don't have the answer because after going outside to check the theater I realized that I was in the right theater and they were playing the wrong movie. I blame the lady in the second row because "What goes around" you know "comes all the back around" and that is why we were watching the wrong movie. To make a long story kinda short; We didn't get the real movie started until 12:10 and then we had to watch more previews. This was an inconvenience but going to see a movie for the first time by myself made it an adventure. And the management at the theater did give us a ticket for a free admission to a movie and this one you could use for any movie even if it says no passes. The trick was we needed our ticket stubs to get this free ticket and since that lady in the second row did not purchase an Oceans 13 ticket i don't think she was able to receive a free admission.
More importantly then this fun story to share, Oceans 13 is such an amazing movie. I cannot wait until it comes out on DVD so I can watch it over and over. I highly recommend this movie for everyone and anyone who wants to see one of the top movies of the year. Until the next time enjoy the blogging community.
