Advanced Showing of Downton Abbey Movie

My Mother's Day present from my hubby was dinner and advanced showing tickets to the second Downton Abbey movie - a New Era.  Last night was the night.

Since I'm diligently trying to lose weight to take pressure off my knee, my choice of restaurants was limited - Olive Garden [Soup and Salad], Chinese Restaurant [Chicken Subgum] or Applebee's [Oriental Chicken Salad].  I opted for Applebee's.  Weight is coming off, but ever so slowly.

After dinner we drove over to the movie theater for the 7:00 p.m. showing of the long-awaited movie. Even though it doesn't appear to be a chilly, rainy evening in the photo below, it was. My hubby counted only a total of 10 movie-goers who came out to see it.   I don't know if that means Downton Abbey mania is waning, movie-goers went to another nearby theater to see it, or they're waiting for opening day on May 20th.  I was very happy to see the advanced showing.

I'm not going to give any spoilers.  Suffice it to say I enjoyed it and want to see it one more time to take in anything I missed last night, but I'll be surprised if there's a movie #3.

Here's a few big screen photos I took last night that won't give anything away.


I definitely didn't need another Downton Abbey cookbook, but I wanted the only one I didn't have in my collection.  It recently arrived in the mail, and has some wonderful recipes and beautiful pictures.  I'm glad I got it.

If you see the movie please tell me how you liked it.

It's sad our world is so troubled that I left the theater thanking God that we were able to watch the movie peacefully without someone entering with a gun and shooting up the place. Perpetrators committing crimes of violence [shootings] are occurring everywhere, everyday, and it seems no one is safe anywhere anymore.  I take comfort in our Lord's words in the Book of Joshua:  "Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go."
