Blue Monday - Movie Review: The Words

Hello! It's Blue Monday! For instructions, just click here.

I plan to visit every Blue Monday post. I love to see the many shades of blue you find.

I appreciate the comments left for me. I always look forward to seeing what you have to say.

Try to visit other Blue participants. That's what makes the day fun. Simply click on the links below. Be sure to wish everyone a Happy Blue Monday!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thursday, my daughter treated me with her gift for my birthday this past May. She took me to the movies. We've been waiting for a film that we'd both enjoy. Notice the Blue sky and the Blue trim on the theater.



CineBistro is an experience of a new way to enjoy dinner and a movie.
The seating is luxury to the max. Look how wide and cushy these soft leather seats are!




They rock back too! Notice the attached trays and cup holders. Look at the wide aisles!




Dinner is served on china by uniformed staff--and it is GOOD too.
Talk about luxury! Boy, was I spoiled.




The film we saw was The Words.
It is a complex story-within-a-story about an unsuccessful young writer, played by Bradley Cooper,
who finds a great manuscript inside an old brief case and decides to submit it as his own work.
Because of that choice, his life is forever changed.

The color of Cooper's shirt is Blue.




Here he speaks with the novel's true author, the Old Man, played by Jeremy Irons.
You'll spot more Blue here.

I liked it; so did my daughter; however, we both agreed that it is not for everyone. If you enjoy reading books and seeing films that make you think, this is for you. Because it's not for everyone, I give it a thumbs undecided!




Happy Blue Monday!

Barbara F. said...

That is some movie theatre, Sally. Glad you enjoyed it. I want to see that movie. xo

Tito Eric said...

First, that theater is beautiful. And the inside is even more more so. Hope such trend continues. I'd love to see more theaters like that across the globe. Also to be served with tasty treats while enjoying a movie. Oh yeah, I'd like to see the The Words, too!

SwedishCorner ~ DownUnder...Pernilla said...

Thanks for hosting, Sally! HBM :) Beautiful blue sky! We are enjoying some light rain today - the first rain in 61days!!

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, the #7 link is not correct. If you can, please delete. I was linking and just when I was deleting last weeks link so I could put in the current link...it linked the old one in error. sigh!

I know you really enjoyed your birthday dinner and movie. I would like to see it. Especially in a dinner movie theater. Smile. There is nothing like that here though. We have one movie theater and it is small. We just saw 2016 and it was enlightening.

Happy Blue Monday Sally,
Love, Jeanne

Krzysiek Helak said...

The movie seems be interesting, time to go to the cinema. It is a pity that in my cinema do not give such dinners :)

Jenny Short said...

We had one like that in my old hometown. It was so fun to attend with my kids. It's no longer there. xo Jenny

Anni said...

I had to look at imdb.com and read about the film, and most people seems to think just like you!

I'm not keen of the idea to sit and eat at a cinema, if I want to do that I can watch the film at home. But the chairs look cosy!

Happy Blue Monday!

Diana Taylor said...

I just love the Art Deco look of the cinema - and what a great idea to dine and watch a movie at the same time - I wonder if that will catch on in the UK?

HansHB said...

Great photos for blue, - nice to see!
I am participating this week.
Happy Blue Monday to you!

AnnA said...

Hi Sal!
I am sending you some blue passion this time, and the last blueberries.
Happy Blue Monday!
Have a nice week!
Best wishes,
AnnA

Gemma Wiseman said...

What an all round great experience! To see the movie in such style! Love this series of photos!

Beverly said...

Happy Blue Monday, Sally.

What a nice treat for both of you, and I know you had a great time. I've been wanting to see that movie, too.

Magical Mystical Teacher said...

Wide movie seats always make me smile.

Sarah ~ Magnolias Attic said...

What a fabulous theater, and such a lovely treat! I'll have to catch that movie -- it sounds really good.
Have a glorious Blue Monday!

Susan (My Place to Yours) said...

The movie sounds intriguing. I think I'd like to see it... So glad you and your daughter had the time together!

Gerald (Hyde DP) said...

I can't remember the last time I went to the cinema.

Lina Gustina said...

What a beautiful theater, Sally. That's really a luxury watching movie experience. It's a pity that my husband likes to watch movie only for fun. It's not his kind of movie. Perhaps I'll try to find its DVD version.

Salmagundi said...

Hi Sally-- Sorry about that mix-up on the link back to your blog. It was meant to link up to my post on Penny Rugs, and somehow it went to an old post on drawers. I've re-linked but don't know how to delete the old #48 link. Thanks for putting up with my apparent lack of computer skills. Also, thanks for always hosting this fun party. Sally

Luna Miranda said...

i love the colors of this theater. and the seats, wow! dinner while watching a movie--that is so great!

Gracie O'Tripp said...

I love it that the dinner themed theater businesses are starting to set up in some of the older theaters with such interesting architecture. Thanks for hosing Blue Monday.
