This Christmas I spent a few days in Austin with Marisa's family celebrating Christmas. One of my father-in-law's presents was a night out to see Rogue One (with myself and Marisa, of course!).
Being in Austin I wanted to check out an Alamo Drafthouse since I've heard many good things about this, and I wasn't disappointed. It is clear that the folks who run this chain love movies.
Instead of a bunch of inane ads before the previews they played old Star Wars toy commercials and YouTube videos. The seats were comfy, and you could order booze/food (I had a pretzel).
Thumbs up, Alamo Drafthouse.
The one bad thing I can say about this particular movie watching experience is that the sound was turned up a little too much. It was super loud, which I didn't mind myself but Marisa had to cover her ears a couple of times.
This year has sucked, but it hasn't been all bad.
I'm writing a post per day for the rest of 2016 talking about some of my favorite things this year. Find the rest of the posts in this series here.
