A little treasure in San Antonio!

Today I went to a Santiko's movie theater here in San Antonio (Texas, USA) and I have to say that I witnessed, whereas the same time enjoyed, a concept for movie theaters that is fading away in time.

I went to the theater that is located at crossroads mall, which is the closest mall to the area where I live at (Medical Center) here in San Antonio. The mall itself is in decadency, by that I mean that many of its former stores are gone already, hence while walking in it you will see lots of empty places where in the past used to be a business.
It is in this mall where a Santiko's movie theater is placed.

This sunday I decided to go to Target, which is located at the above mentioned mall, and do the weekly shopping for food, but prior to that I decided to go to the movie theater since I had a free movie ticket. I decided to go and see "Slum Dog Millionaire" movie and I have to say that the movie is a master piece. The movie is so good that I was literally glued to my seat, albeit I wanted to pee.

The movie is a crude one but at the same time is so good that I ended up crying while seeing it. I cried out of joy when at the end Jamel Malek (My son's nick name is Ariel Malek, or Ariel The King =), hehehehehe)ends up with the love of his life.

I don't want to give away the movie but all I can ask is for you all to go and see it, and I hope tonight it wins an oscar.


y ahora in Spanish for those who doesn't speak English....


El dia de hoy tuve a bien el ir a el cine de Santikos, que es el mas cercano a el area donde yo moro aqui en San Antonio. El mismo se encuentra en lo que otrora fue un centro comercial con afluencia pero que en el presente esta en decadencia, pues a vio pasar sus mejores dias.


El cine de Santikos es un teatro con un concepto ya pasado de moda, pues es un lugar donde te sirven comida gourmet mientras ves la pelicula, es mas tienes una mesa enfrente de vuestro asiento, amen de que os dan una carta con el menu que sirve. Tengo que admitir que disfrute este concepto anquilosado y destinado a morir por los tiempos que se viven ahora, y mas con esta crisis economica actual.

Decidi entrar a ver la pelicula Slum Dog Millionaire tengo que decir que la pelicula no es buena, sino EXCELENTE, es tan buena que aunque tenia ganas de orinar, simplemente no fui por miedo a perder el hilo de la misma.

Al final termine llorando y no de tristeza sino de alegria al ver que Jamel Malik (el sobrenombre de mi hijo Ariel, es Ariel Malik que siginifica en Arabe y Urdu Ariel El Rey, jejejeeje )termina con el amor de su vida y el premio de la plata.

No quiero dar detalles de la pelicula pero si les digo que si desean ver una buena pelicula por favor vayan a verla.

Bueno me despido ... Good Bye for now!
