Anyone interested in a monthly or bimonthly film night?
After the cost of a cinema ticket, I thought it would be a nice way of getting together, having a gladd of vino and watching a film. I will happily host in our 'shabby' cinema room (just be warned that despite the whole screen and projector set up, we have a rather make shift surround sound arrangement) and we could beg and borrow DVDs at first to watch, then we could order them via a DVD delivery service.
Let me know who would be interested and which night would be best for you. I was thinking of saying 1st (and maybe 3rd) Wednesday of the month at around 7.30/8.
I must add that DH will be about. I may invite some other film fanatic friends, so it wont be exclusively the MN clan...hope thats OK.
DH is shocked that I think its alright to have people over despite the room not being up to AV forum standards. He is also seeing it as a great excuse to buy a new projector, so make sure you tell him that the one we have is great and the image is perfect .
Your DH sounds hilarious - he should try watching films on our crappy old tv - we even seem to get two black lines (across the top and the bottom) I think it is something to do with having an old curvy screen!
Ooh - im in! DH will be very jealous, but 'pah' to him! he can sit on his own and watch one of his gory violent films without me cringing next to him and making him turn the sound off. (wuss emoticon)
oh yes, i have some film watching requirements - a large pillow to hide behind if it gets in the least violent and a couple of hankies for any sad/soppy/happy/funny moments. Really - i WILL cry - i warn you now!
