My ticket to the Royal Wedding

*Blogger is spacing things really strangely (as usual) and I can't fix it, so sorry for the sloppy spacing*

Did you know that there was a royal wedding last week? Not many people knew about it, so I wanted to ask :)

There is a local, independent movie theater here in Tulsa. It's been around for over 80 years. And I believe that it is also non-profit. I'd actually never been to it before last week, but I'd driven by many times.

They were showing the royal wedding live on Friday, and it was free to watch! How many times in life do you get the opportunity to watch a future king and queen get married in a (an?) historic movie theater? Pretty cool, right? Oh, and they also served tea, crumpets, eggs, bangers, and scones. Seriously, it was fun :)

So, my friend Jenny and I decided we would go. We arrived about 4:30am, and it was full! There were a lot more people than I thought would be there. There were a lot of cute old ladies dressed up wearing hats :)

The line for breakfast tickets (you did have to pay for breakfast)

We were so happy that the actual theater was relatively empty. And then about 10 minutes later, it was completely full! We got there just in time.

Pretty good seats, huh? There really isn't a bad seat in the house there, since it's such a small theater.

I'm not sure why the zoom-ed in photos are blurry, but oh well.

It was really the best idea we've had in a long time. It definitely made watching it more exciting, not that it needed any help, it was just a fun atmosphere. And, the manager of the place was SO nice. He even came into the theater and gave a little speech and sincerely thanked everyone for coming. To their free event. I will definitely be going back!

Oh, and ladies, if you're depressed that it's all over, like I was, no need to worry :)

When did Harry become the hot prince? For real, he was like a Disney character dressed up like that!

Anyone want to take bets on wether he and Pippa hooked up that night? ;)

hahah, Harry and Pippa! I bet that was a wild party! That is so fun that the theater did that for free!!! I cant believe you got up so early voluntarily though :)
