Kim suggested we go ages ago and we had been waiting for a warmish night when something we actually wanted to see was on. The answer? LABYRINTH. So many shots of David Bowie’s crotch and none of us had actually seen it before!But I’m getting ahead of myself XD Here’s a pretty bike James saw on the way…
We had tea and dinner at Hanaichi before the movie.
And did the exchanging of Christmas gifts, of course Kim’s were much better wrapped than mine ;_; Such cute packaging!
After that it was the LONG trek up to the top of the building for the movie.
The session was completely sold out so it was pretty busy, we decided to stake out our seats early so we had a good view.
Tell you what, the view was pretty damn good!
There were rows of comfy deck-chairs and even though the forecast was fairly warm it got chilly very quickly
We of course were dressed for Summer >_<
We were there so early that we sat around taking photos for quite a while before the movie started, everyone else was over at the bar XD
There was a burger stall next to the screen who delivered to your chairs, so cute! The fries we had were SO good.
Obviously I can’t show you any of the movie but it was aaaawesome! We kept a tally of how many shots of David Bowie’s crotch there were. The first half of the movie was much more crotch heavy with 15 shots while the second half only had 4.
We were so cold though, at half time we rented some blankets to snuggle under but the wind just came right in the back of the chairs. I think I was an icicle by the time the movie was over.
The cinema was even prettier after dark though!
So conclusion? Labyrinth is a hilariously awesome movie. I loved the rooftop cinema and definitely want to go again but next time I’ll wear warmer clothes and ignore the forecast XD
The pretty lights were still out on the way home too 😀
Oh hai there.
Skipping ahead in the timeline to New Year’s Eve!
James LOVES NYE, I’m pretty indifferent but I’ll go anywhere he likes so we usually do something involving watching fireworks!
We took a tram down to Docklands to see the 9:30 kids fireworks and it was completely packed. Of course the tram was like 15 minutes late so we got there half way through.
Traditional kiss at 9:30 sounds so much lamer…
The harbour was so pretty even if the boats were all trying to outdo each other with their horns *_*
I take a lot of photos of the same thing but then I can’t decide which one is nicer… I need to get better at that.
But so pretty!
Docklands was packed but there wasn’t actually anything to do there so we left right after the fireworks. I don’t understand why places like this don’t have market stalls and things to actually do? Between the 9:30 and 12am fireworks the only other thing I could find there was a stage with terrible music.
So after that we came home for a bit then decided to walk to Southbank to see what they had.
There weren’t really any markets here either but they had my all time favorite busker playing! His name is George Kamikawa and he is so talented! It was a pleasure watching him until the late fireworks ^_^
There were a lot of people dancing out the front too, it was adorable!
The fireworks were a lot bigger here and we were right under one of the buildings so they were pretty loud!
And this time we did the proper kiss at midnight but I was too busy filming to get photos haha!
So much fun! I really enjoyed both nights ^_^ Next year is my turn to think of something to do for NYE so I’ll have to find something suitably explody but with something fun for me to do too!
