Entertainment: Calgary Movie Theatre: Sunridge Spectrum and Sushi

Today was Art's parents' last day in Calgary, they return to Ontario early (very early) tomorrow morning after spending Christmas vacation here. We went to a matinee, and then afterwards to Art's brother's place for the evening. Art's mom showed us how to prepare sushi rice, and to make sushi. It is not as hard as I thought it might be. Now that we have seen a professional at work, and received her instruction, we have no more excuses. Soon we'll be venturing to the T&T Grocery in Franklin Mall for some fresh tuna and some of the other fixings.

Sunridge Spectrum is one of Calgary's newest mega theatre complexes and is a Cineplex Odeon operation in Calgary's North East. We had hoped to see "National Treasure" but that was not playing at 12:05 as indicated on the advertisements and Spectrum's web-site. So we went to "The Incredibles" instead. Which Art and I have already seen at Eau Claire's Cinemas a couple of weeks ago. But we enjoyed it and I think I enjoyed it even more the second time.

We went with Art's parents as well as his brother-in-law and family. Armed with our coupons from cereal boxes, we purchased iced moccachinos, which I was quite impressed with. The fare at theatres is amazing these days, you can choose from a large variety of high-glycemic fast food varieties, and still get the old favorite theatre standby's of overpriced fountain pop, popcorn with fake butter, candy bars and licorice.
