During a weekend visit to DC, I spent almost 2 hours in line to get into the city’s latest attraction – the Game of Thrones Pop Up Bar. A line formed at least an hour before doors officially opened at 5:00 p.m. Two family members who share the same excitement for the extremely popular series on HBO, joined me in awe of the well decorated venue. It felt like we were journeying through a mini Westeros!
The bar closes the day of the GOT season finale- August 27. So, if you want to rep. your “house” or take a seat in the Red Keep- act fast.
Anyone who knows me is already aware of the excitement this movie will bring me. I have watched the series over and over again and it never gets old. This is the last film of the series and it doesn’t look like a disappointment. The first thing I will do on my next trip nis find a recliner movie theatre and watch Jason Bourne get his vengeance.
Went to see the movie 42 for a family outing. Great story showing how legendary Jackie Robinson became the first African American to play National Baseball for the Dodgers. Not only was he the first African American in the sport, he was an exceptional athlete.
The City Hall Theatre recently changed its name to the Earl Cameron Theatre honoring the 95-year-old Bermudian actor. Although there were negative comments in regards to the name change, I think it was a generous step, showing that Bermuda can display appreciation for those who have had outstanding success on and off the island. There are stories shared throughout families of Bermudians who have achieved great accomplishments but, were never truly recognized for them or, rarely remembered years later. The Earl Cameron Theatre will stand for years to come. After moving to Britain after WWII, Cameron made his film debut in 1950 as one of the first black actors to star in a British movie. He has appeared in many films and TV shows including Thunderball (1965), The Interpreter (2005) with Nicole Kidman and Sean Penn Cameron and the Oscar-winning film The Queen. Cameron has received recognition in the UK by being named a Commander of the British Empire for services to the dramatic arts in 2009. A fan of film and the arts, I applaud Mr. Cameron and I’m glad to see him getting the recognition he deserves.
