I caught the movie ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ in Gold Class yesterday, with tickets courtesy of Golden Village. Thank you, GV! 😀
I know many people find Gold Class tickets pricey ($29 weekdays, $39 weekends) but for certain movies, it DOES make sense to purchase Gold Class tickets.
1) You can watch the usual 1-hour-plus movie with a normal ticket which costs $8.50. But ‘The Hobbit’ lasts 161 minutes, close to 3 hours! I really think paying $29 for a weekday Gold Class ticket is well worth it!
2) The Hobbit is not your usual action-packed movie. Sure, there are fast-paced (and truly hilarious) scenes, such as the barrels down the river one, but some parts of the movie *may* put your movie companion to sleep. Instead of waking up with neck cramps, why not relax in a Gold Class recliner seat?
3) For movies which last over 2 hours, having a blanket to snuggle under is pretty important. I didn’t walk out of the theatre with freezing fingers and toes yesterday. 😀
I won’t even bother reviewing the movie because it’s one of those movies where reviews don’t matter – people are still going to watch it anyway. 😀
Here’s the synopsis from GV:
“The second in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug continues the adventure of the title character Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he journeys with the Wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellan) and thirteen Dwarves, led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) on an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor.”
If you are going to watch ‘The Hobbit’, why not catch it in Gold Class? 🙂
