Elly and I had a great night out last night at the Culch.ie birthday party/Groundhog Day movie screening.
The venue was the “The Sugar Club” and the evening began with Darren on-stage introducing the movie and announcing that there would be some spot prizes later. Although, he was ambushed by some of the other Culch.ie crew with a large chocolate cake. It was almost a shame to cut it though as it was the Culch.ie logo, but cut it was and passed to the eagerly waiting audience.
Groundhog Day is a film I have seen before but not this millennium, so it was almost like a whole new film to me. Elly on the other hand had never seen it and (like me and everyone else) laughed through most of it.
What stood out for me, watching this film again was the character of Ned Ryerson. I’d never noticed it before but was this character the inspiration for Ace Ventura‘s irritating “funny” voice and mannerisms?
Once the movie finished some spot prizes were given out (congrats to all the winners) and the lights came up allowing the audience to mingle and chat while enjoying the bar facilities, there didn’t seem to be any rush to clear people out and as a result there was a fantastic friendly, relaxed atmosphere.
An excellent evening was had by all and for the my first Culch.ie ‘event’ I was very impressed. Spot prizes, cake, a great movie, a witty and intelligent MC and a great venue, how could I not be impressed. Oh, did I mention there was cake!
I can’t wait for the next one, some come on Darren don’t keep us in suspense…
