*Excuse blurry images. My camera doesn't take the best nighttime shots*I have just returned from a wonderful evening attending the release of Wes Anderson's The Grand Budapest Hotel. The cinema I attended really went above and beyond making the opening night that extra bit special. There was a light display projected onto the cinema in which scenes from the movie played, live actors were posed around the cinema, such as Agatha making pastries (I only wish I got a shot with the actress), Gustav and Zero even welcoming us at the door. A special cocktail was even created in honor of the release, however, I unfortunately did not get to try one.
The movie was absolutely fabulous, entertaining, suspenseful and so distinctly Wes Anderson. If you haven't seen it, I urge you to! It really lives up to the hype. And now, of course, I am dying to try my hand at making my own Courtesan au Chocolats!
The night was topped off with a big mug of chai and cheesecake at a nearby cafe. It's nights like these that really enhance an otherwise uneventful uni filled week.
