Julia Roberts as Evil Queen

I have just come across the first lot of pictures of Julia Roberts as the Evil Queen in next years Untitled Snow White film. I think the best thing to think about Jules is WOW. She really does look incredible, I can imagine her being really good and very evil in the role. Really looking forward to seeing this one . . . yes I know I say that about all of her films.

Cinema Food: The Hot Dog

We all know that when we visit the cinema we do not have much choice when it comes to which snacks to buy. But the first one I am going to talk about on my blog is the Hot Dog.

A snack which I occasionally buy, usually if I have not had much else to eat as find them rather filling . . . especially when they now have a foot-long hot dog at Cineworld. They really do have to be the best hot dogs you can get. One major problem though has to be the price, they are not cheap at all.

With Cineworld being my local cinema and having my Unlimited pass I have not actually tried a hot dog from any other cinema chain. (So I have no idea if they supply the same hot dogs or they are different). I do know that Westler seem to be the biggest hot dog supplier.

If you want a hot dog it will probably set you back around £4 or maybe about £8/£9 if you opt for a combo with two drinks. Or a combo with one drink about £6. Luckily my Cineworld has been giving us 30% off for being Unlimited Card holders for the past few months which is a brilliant saving!

Do you ever opt for a cinema Hot Dog?
