As soon as I finished reading The Hunger Games Trilogy I raved about it in a blog post and I told my friends about it. After they devoured the books we agreed that we would go see the movies together.
It took us awhile to find it playing in English and get our schedules coordinated so that we could go together but tonight we made it happen.
We went to Cinecitta in Nuremberg. The original language films are buried in menus so just follow my link to see what's playing in English. There was plenty of parking nearby and next time we'll allow time to go out to dinner. The Indochine Restaurant pictured above was very charming. It was located on the water right next to the theatre.
Going to the movies is a little bit different in Germany. You walk into the lobby and there are masses of people lined up in multiple lines that seem to go on forever. Luckily they moved pretty quickly. We got to select seats when we bought our tickets, much like you would expect at a stage theater production. The movie complex was in at least two buildings and there was a little coffee shop set up inside of our building. My friends bought sandwiches to go but their drinks came in real glasses that they had to return after the movie.
I was nervous about how things would work out. I wondered if the movie would indeed be in English and I hoped I would be able to navigate the city okay. Everything worked out. We had a delightful time!
