Showcase Cinema De Lux Lanch

Hey readers,

Last night I was lucky enough to attend the Launch Night at Coventry Showcase Cinema De Lux.  The event took place to celebrate the new make over and a change to test out the new XPLUS auditorium.

Before the film there was drinks and canapes on offer. The lobby area had improved drastically since the last time that I had been to Showcase Cinema. Much more inviting and it felt an area where you could relax before the film.

There is a bar in the lobby area which offers alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks. On the other side of the lobby there is a Costa coffee, with comfortable seating area so you can relax. There is also a upgrade concessions stand, a coke free style machine and a Tango Ice Blast Pod (which to seems to be really popular).

The lighting and decor has a more sophisticated and relax appeal to it, making you feel much more at ease and relaxed before the film viewing.

What does the XPLUS auditorium consist of you ask, well for starters it has an impressive wall to wall screen with a digital projection  making the picture much more crisper and detail is phenomena I found out whilst watching Transformers: The Last Knight.

Let’s not forget the 360 Dolby Atmos Sound system – so there were 60 speakers across the walls and above the ceiling creating amazing sound giving that extra involvement when watching the film.

Film fans celebrate the opening of the newly refurbished Showcase Cinema, rebranded into a flagship Showcase Cinema de Lux.

The chairs have all been updated in the cinema giving a much more comfort place to rest whilst watching the film. They are leather recliner seats which you can get control with the the buttons on the panel at the right hand of the chair. There is enough room for cups to place in the holder, I have been to other cinemas and the larger cups are really difficult to put in the holder, small things make a huge different to the experience.

One thing that I noticed is the lightening around the lights is lower and a cool calm feel to the atmosphere. Where as before it was bright and instantly hit your eyes, not very pleasant when you have been in the dark for a good old hour and half.

The space in the alleys of the cinema is spacious, none of this treading on people’s toast business which makes it less stressful when visiting the cinema.

There is two car parks so plenty of space and it is free which is an added bonus.

Definitely recommend going to try out the XPLUS because it feels so luxurious and so you get thew comfortable therefore getting the relaxed experience.

Mindful

Hey readers,

My word of the week is

MINDFUL.png

because as a person I am anxious and neurotic at the best times, I am autistic and always self conscious about how I communicate whether that be verbal or non-verbal. I have a lot of self-doubt and I am on edge a lot as a parent. But this week when I have had really high levels of anxiety, I have embraced and gone with it. This is something that I am not very good at because it is scary, generally with my anxiety I get a LOT of intrusive thoughts. It has really been really effective, not all the time but a small time. For me that is progress because I am a firm believer in baby steps and anxiety is something I have to live with. But this week I felt quite proud of my work, it takes a lot of courage to change especially when you are not feeling 100%.

So, I am going to take this opportunity to big myself up because no one else will. You know what I can get stuck perfectionist ways so it is good to see the positive.

The Reading Residence

Beach Life

Hey Readers,

The other weekend we went out for a day to the seaside, which is supper exciting as we haven’t been to the coast for along time, so both my boys were super happy at the prospect.

We went to Dorset as it wasn’t the closest and it had sandy beach as my hubby does not like stoney beach, lol.

We went to a local coastal town called Lymington which was  lovely quaint town. We popped into a lovely little tea room and had some delicious sandwiches.

Then we decided to have a stroll around the town and take it easy. We obviously we had to have ice-cream as it is the law when you away.  We came to a real cool decorated ice-cream parlour, I just love the fun balloon lights.

Their ice-cream is one of the best we have ever had. My sons love bubblegum ice-cream natural but when they saw the bubble gum ice-cream cone that blew their tiny little minds.

It was lovely to just take our time and look around at the shops. We even got to see a gold letter box, which both my boys loved.

As you can see there was plenty of visual features to see. I am so easily distracted by quirky buildings and what not.

We then ventured on to a boat yard, and that smell takes me to so many happy memories of vising the sea side. There were seagulls and then general hustle and bustle of day to day life of fisherman and all that kind of thing.

The man in the above photo attracted my son’s attention as he was doing a bit of water-colouring.

We then travelled to a local beach (Avon) as you can’t beat a visit to the beach. Even though it looked overcast it was pleasantly warm.

My boys enjoyed jumping on the waves and building sandcastles. Luckily we didn’t visit during the heatwave period as it was fairly quite which I enjoy more as there is less noise and chaos about. (yeah I know anti-social but true).

Sadly, we only stopped for the day but it was a good day none the less and both boys returned home full of happy memories.
