I am going to come right out and say it. I was a total fail for taking photos for this post. I knew that I would end up doing a spooky date night post, but in the end I just wanted to enjoy our evening and not focus on taking good photos for the blog. I hope you all understand!
Friday night Scott and I went out for a date night. It was long overdue but we all know that Vancouver is an expensive city and to be honest, I nearly always prefer my home cooked food to restaurant food anyways 🙂
But for this past Friday night I wanted to do something special for Scott and take him out for a date night. He has been so awesome with everything these past few months, and really the whole three years that we have been dating, so I thought it would be nice to show him that I really appreciate all that he does and has been doing for me and our relationship.
And really, do we need an excuse to take our spouses out? I don’t think so 🙂
So for this date night I took on a spooky theme. It was the Friday night before Halloween, and both Scott and I love all things Horror. So what did I do? I got us tickets to go see the original, John Carpenter version, of Halloween.
For those who do not know, this movie traumatized me as a child. I’m going to do a whole separate post on that next week, so stay tuned! In the mean time though I will tell you, the movie still made me very nervous, I jumped a bunch, and if I were put in a room with Michael Myers I think I would just off myself before he could get to me. He’s terrifying.
We ended up having dinner at a small bar beside the movie theatre. Scott got an amazing looking pork taco and I got a mini pizza with bocconcini cheese, onions and black olives.
Next we went to print out our tickets for the movie.
Before the movie started we walked around and looked at the closed up shops to see what was around. The air was so fresh and crisp. Perfect for a spooky date night.
What I love about the Park theatre in Vancouver is how it is only a ten minute walk from our apartment, and it is clearly an old school theatre that Cineplex bought out. There is only one theatre inside, and the seats are terribly set up. It feels like we are back in the 80’s or something when we go there!
The movie was SO MUCH FUN to go see there, and it was my first movie that I have ever seen in theatre that is already out. I love how some theatres play old classics, and I think this movie was perfect for a spooky date night.
It even had a half hour interview with John Carpenter before the actual movie. So cool!
This was such a fun date night and I think a great way to show my appreciation for him, since going to the movies is one of his favorite things. And who doesn’t like being taken out for a meal?
I know I for one cannot wait to have another date night there with a classic playing 🙂
Do you have an old school movie theatre near you?
Have you ever seen a classic at the theatre?
How do you choose to show others that you appreciate them?
