Movies in Mexico~ Mucho Gusto~

Jr. Mints & Movie Theaters in Mexico!

Today I went to the Cuatro Caminos Cinepolis movie theater. The whole movie theater experience in Mexico takes watching movies to the next level when watching from one of the VIP rooms here. The Cinepolis theater chain offers VIP seating where you watch a movie in large comfortable chairs & have food & drink brought to you. Incredible really when I think about theaters I have been to where the remnants of drinks & candy make shoes stick to the floor (okay, I know everyone agrees on this issue, totally gross!) In the states the pricey offerings are limited to Nachos, Popcorn & Jr. Mints ~not that I ever have a problem with Jr Mints! Here in the theater they do have the standard offerings including Jr. Mints with a Sanborns label as well as more gourmet items such as croissants, ice cream, crepes, tortes, capuccinos, beer & wine. The theater was quite clean & while the choice of snacks today for the movie goers in our women's group was palomitas *aka: popcorn, it was nice to know if we had wanted something more exciting we could have had it! And I must admit it was kind of cool to enjoy a movie & not sit through 30 minutes of ads. It is a movie experience I hope to see north of the border someday!
The price for this event,including food here in Mexico: less than a single movie ticket back in the states.
And best of all Russel Crowe looks good in yet another movie! We enjoyed seeing him in Un Buen Ano also known as the Good Year! An entertaining flick from a Peter Mayle book!

Nope, the movie was in English, Spanish subtitles, with both English & Spanish subtitles when there was French being spoken as well. Good flick though!
