Regal Hollywood Stadium 20 & RPX – Greenville, SC

We had the opportunity this past weekend to knock off another theater I hadn’t been to. Yes, it is just an excuse to post pictures of my granddaughter. The front sidewalk has an enormous amount of room. I’m not sure if they use it for events or not. They have the usual Regal people ropes (a la Disney) for properly herding ticket buyers.

Inside I was surprised that they had ropes again for herding customers to the refreshment counter. I guess they get bigger crowds than I am used to. The usual Regal fare was there (soda, icees, popcorn, candy, hot dogs, pretzels). Miss D found a Minions display.

They also had a really nice full-size Kung Fu Panda statue (which will come in handy for the third movie).

We didn’t try the RPX (which I love in Asheville) as the film was Ted 2 and just a tad inappropriate for the little one. Seating was stadium-style but the seats were rather hard and not very comfortable.

A good time was had by all at Inside Out but no one was particularly impressed by it. I think I enjoyed it more than the girls did.

Minions

Best Buy just got a set of FREE movie tickets promos in. Buy specially marked packages of the Despicable Me movies, The Lorax, E.T., The Nut Job, or The Box Trolls and get a FREE movie ticket for Minions. Given my granddaughter’s (yeah that’s it, my granddaughter) love of these, I’m sure to need several tickets.

Jurassic World tickets can be scored by purchasing specially marked packages of the Jurassic Park movies (natch!), Jaws, Serenity, King Kong, Incredible Hulk, Apollo 13, Lone Survivor, Lucy, Oblivion, Munich, the Bourne trilogy, Back to the Future trilogy, and Inglourious Basterds. Obviously not taking my granddaughter to this but will still need several tickets I think.

Despicable Me 2 and the Minions

Despicable MeA month or so ago I bought Despicable Me at Target to watch with my granddaughter (it was cheap and had a FREE ticket to Despicable Me 2). She loved it and calls it the Minion movie. We then had to collect the McDonald’s kids meal toys (the tiny one was a Target freebie).

MinionsNot to be outdone, my ever creative wife made a Minion shirt for our darling.

Dorothy MinionWe finally went to see Despicable Me 2 last weekend (Jenny, my daughter Els, my granddaughter Dorothy, and I). A fun time was had by all. Despicable Me 2 was not as good as the first but we all enjoyed it – Dorothy was rapt!

E & DSadly the Biltmore Grande had gotten rid of their awesome promotional display: a whack-a-mole with minions! I really wanted to buy it from them and put it in the movie room, even if it was cardboard. The Regal Biltmore gets the best displays.
