because you never forget that funny smell

Twende Cinema

It was only a few weeks ago when our young Woolies suggested that as a treat they would take us down to the cinema.

Almost immediately Mrs Woolie and myself thought – “why not?” – It is always nice to do things together -you know family – like but there never seems to be the right time. Also it is quite a while since we’ve been to the cinema what with one thing and another – and everyone working dodgy hours.

There was a new film by Steven Spielberg with the title the Adventures of Tintin. I grew up reading these comics so it was definitely going to be a treat

There followed nearly 10 days of protracted and tough negotiation. Leaders were asked to step down amidst threats of resignations and promises of fresh elections and a new coalition family. At one point it seemed the whole thing was on the brink of collapse. Just when we thought it was all lost there came a breakthrough. We were all able to organise our diaries and there was one evening when all of us would be available to go to the cinema. The day is finally here and we are going to see the 5 o’clock show tonight.

So unless something totally unforeseen happens…… to say I am excited is an understatement. The last time I went to the movies there were ashtrays on the back of the seat infront of you.


I don’t remember the film that I watched that night but I still have the ticket. Have a great weekend………

  1. I sure hope you went cos 1970 is kitambo!

  2. Tin Tin! I used to read those comic books like they were the bible! My favourite characters were those detective twins (Thomson & Thompson?) and Capt. Haddock. I am going to look for the movie! Talking about cinema, it is has been ages since I went to one, and I have not taken the Hongolets to one either so this Tin Tin thing looks like a plot. Where is it showing?
    I remember Shan cinema in Ngara, went there once. those were the days when cinema was cinema. My first cinema was Sun City in Eastleigh, frequented Eastlands, cameo, nairobi, Odeon and Cinema as well…We considered kenya and 20th century to be for the “barbies”…

  3. meant Odeon and Embassy Cinema..

  4. haha @ farmgal that was when flicks were priced for ordinary folk. @Otieno It was fantastic! a couple of hours of pure escape – the story unfolds so well. The film has followed the books so closely. The young Hongolets will definitely approve.

  5. That ticket, wacha tu.

  6. @Maua heheee! – That ticket belongs in the museum of 20th century cinematography(sp). Thanks for passing by.
