What A Weekend – Part One

19 Jul

I have had the most glorious weekend. Allow me to walk you through it…

Firstly, for Mr Monster and I every Thursday night is ‘date night’. Wherever we are, we commit to an evening just for the two of us to go out and do something fun. I’m sure it can’t have escaped your attention that the final installment of Harry Potter came out on Friday. As an avid fan of the books you can imagine my excitement.

Mr Monster did some research and found that out local Cinema De Lux was holding a special evening showing,The Deathly Hallows part one at 9, followed by the new part two at midnight. A Harry Potter sleepover if you will.

It was the first time since Jurassic Park that I have had to queue round the block to see a film and this only added to the magic. I was very glad to see that some people had made an effort and come in full costume. I made sure to take a few shots of them replacing ‘Cheese’ with ‘Wingardium Leviosa’.


There was a general buzz of excitement with people actually chatting to one another giving it a sense of shared experience. As someone who used to go to buy the books at midnight it seemed fitting to do the same for the last film. And how was the movie?…It didn’t disappoint and was well worth getting home at 3am for.

Stay tuned for part two of my weekend…
