Oh hai, central cinema!

Central Cinema.
8/10 on my bangin' scale.

Who doesn't want to watch old/usually bad movies while stuffing their face? In fact, you can stuff your pie-hole with pie, which is what I did while enjoying "The Room" this Thursday at my new favorite movie theater in Seattle.

The movie was scheduled to start at 9:30, so we didn't try CC's dinner. Instead we sampled an array of snacks-- a pitcher of flowery (but not bad flowery) beer, popcorn with REAL butter, a hot dog (dubbed a pig in blanket) with aioli sauce, and blueberry pie with vanilla ice cream.

The pie was warm, but was also really thin. It was kind of like an actually good hot pocket, come to think of it. They baked each order separately, kind of like a big, oval ravioli made of pie crust, and filled with sugary blueberries. Not what I was expecting, but still tastier than anything you'd get at a regular movie theater.

 Mostly this place gets an 8/10 because they choose awesome movies. Who doesn't want to shout until they get hoarse, and throw spoons at a movie screen? Also, if you get there early enough, you'll get booth seating.

Up next week at CC: Vanilla Ice's "Cool as Ice" (I wonder if they will sell more vanilla ice cream), complete with hecklevision. What is that, you ask? It's when you get to be snarky via text message, and everyone sees your snark like subtitles at the bottom of the screen. That's probably worth the $6/$8 day of ticket price. Good thinking, Lisa!
