So for all you Potter fans...recognize this place?
No? How about if I showed you the Man leaving for the new year at school?
I thought it was kinda cool that they did this. Took a picture of me with it but it looks kinda goofy (of course) so I'm not posting it. And yes, that luggage cart is really sticking out of the wall...I think they kinda ruined the effect by posting the sign but, oh well! We actually went here on Day 11, when we were goofing off downtown. There's a section in our guide book that takes you to some of the famous locations from the Harry Potter films. This is the only one we really made a point of seeing.
So we get to the theater an HOUR before it starts and already, there's a big line. As they let us into the theater, kids are pushing past everyone to get good seats for their entire family. Eh, what are you gonna do? Can't tackle a nine-year-old when his parents and younger sister are right there. We get really good seats, anyway. Nearly dead center and just at the right height. We would have been smack dab in the middle but those two seats are covered by the "Not In Service" thingies. They kinda smell funny, too, like strong cleaner, so I'm thinking that someone puked during the last showing. No worries. We settle in and watch repeated loops of their movie trivia. Then, just as the movie really starts, after all the previews and long commercials, two people come squeezing through the aisle. There are no seats, unless you want to sit in the front row. This couple proceeds to remove the seat covers and sit in the seats next to us! At first, I tried to warn them that I thought there might be puke on them but the guy just blinks at me and says that he had them reserved. WHAT??!? You can do that? I'm thinking he must work for the theater or be in tight with someone who does. I really didn't care, because we got good seats anyway and besides...the movie was starting.
