The 19th of December was the last day of term for the children. They were very excited – obviously, it was soon to be Christmas.
But, they were also excited about something else. On the 20th, we were invited to the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill for a Winter Onsieland event with Now TV to watch Muppets Most Wanted.
It sounded so exciting. We were going to be watching the film from the comfort of sofas in onesies! Now that was an experience that was not to be missed.
Very excitedly, we made our way to the cinema. We were early – which is quite an amazing feat as by the time the children get ready we are normally run just on time or a little late!
The Electric Cinema looks really small from the outside but when we walked in, we were greeted by this –
Sofas covered with furs, cushions, little lamps on tables, the scent of cinnamon and oranges.
We were handed our onesies to change into and we settled down to watch the movie.
And we were treated to Edible Cinema – No, it was not like the witch’s house in Hansel and Gretel. We did not eat pieces of the cinema!! We were given little paper jars/cups that contained different foods that we were asked to try at different times during the film. All very exciting.
We enjoyed the film, needless to say but we were all so overwhelmed by the entire experience that we probably lost track a bit of it. 😉
We were also handed an amazing goodie bag which contained treats that we are still enjoying and a limited edition Now TV box. Yay! And yes, we also got to keep the onesies, which we have been getting into quite often and settling down to watch holiday films together.
It was a wonderful start to the holidays and the festivities and with NowTV, it looks like the festivities are set to continue into the New Year.
