There's No Basement at the Alamo...
...but last night, there was free candy.
We loaded Daphne in the car, but didn't tell her where we were going. When she finally figured it out, she actually squealed with glee. It was awesome. I love surprising that kid.
At each seat in the theater, there was a bag with candy and things to be used to make the movie more "interactive." There were bubbles to blow during the Fizzy Lifting Drink scene (it was so cool - the theater was filled with bubbles!), yellow streamers to wave when Veruca pulls the yellow cellophane during her song, bubble gum for the Violet scenes, and party poppers to explode when the Wonka-vator goes through the roof. And there were gobstoppers, of course.
There were special desserts - we got a Chocolate River Pizza and a Violet Beauregard Blueberry Shake.
At the end, Veruca and Mike Teevee answered questions from the audience and posed for pictures. Daphne asked Veruca how many Veruca dresses she had (two).
It was a great night out. This morning. Daphne was sad because it was over. Then she went outside and blew some leftover bubbles, and I think she feels better now.
The Alamo is awesome. I think they are going to have a special screening sometime soon for knitters, where the lights are left up enough to see your yarn and needles. If they had barbecue chicken wraps and sweet potato fries, I wouldn't miss the Studio Movie Grill anymore at all.
