Late birthday treat

Despite a lot of people's early fears, the new Star Trek film is apparently very good. And I'm seeing it tonight!

I was hoping I could go as a birthday treat, but it wasn't out then, so I'm having a belated one. We're going to the luxury Circle Lounge where one sits in leather adjustable loungers and can be served very good coffee, tapas, and desserts. I usually only lash out for the Circle Lounge for blockbusters which are likely to be full of kids and people eating loud and smelly snacks; at the last Star Trek film I had to climb into the next row down because a brat behind me was kicking my seat. The only downside to the Circle Lounge is the distraction when the waiter comes with the order, often during an exciting bit. :-P But I know I won't be able to resist having something there. Sheer luxury!
