Nick and I were very lucky to be invited to a fun date night in Central London thanks to the lovely people at Joe Blogs. It was a private Superhero Cinema Night screening of the blockbuster hit X-Men: Days of Future Past presented by BGO.
So you can have a taste of the night before you read about the full event, please watch this short video:
I hope you like it. Now you can read all about it!!! 🙂
The event was held at the British Film Institute (BFI). How cool is that? We haven’t been there before so I was very excited. The place was really nice. We were invited along with a few other bloggers and we were all given the VIP treatment with a red carpet rolled out.
I was so happy to see that Rebecca from All About You Blog was also invited to this event so we could finally meet up! I love meeting other bloggers – it’s one of the things that I enjoy the most. She was with her hubby too so the four of us had a good time. She is really lovely!
They had some Marvel themed games to try out like The Incredible Hulk, Spider-man, X-Men and Iron Man. They were all on iPad stations positioned around the room. Of course I had to give it a go and played one of the games. I’m normally rubbish with games but this time I must have done pretty well as I had the best score for that game and I was one of the lucky winners of a cyber arcade console! That was fantastic as I never win anything! My luck is not usually very good so I was incredibly surprised and of course super happy to find out that I was a WINNER!! Yaay!!
We had some drinks, canapés and some sweets that were really yummy!!! We were then asked to grab our things and prepare to head downstairs to one of the private screening rooms to watch the film. We were also offered some popcorn at this point too.
The movie was really good. There were lots of famous actors in this movie which made it even more interesting to watch. It was such a nice experience to be part of. We had a good time and it was just what we needed (any excuse for us to have a bit of time for ourselves is always welcomed with open arms!).
Thank you so much Joe Blogs and BGO for such a unique experience!!

My husband would have LOVED this event. He’s a huge superhero fan. As for me, I didn’t even know that this film was coming out, which shows how often I get out to the cinema now that I have a young baby! #KCACOLS
Rachel (Lifeathomewithmrsb) says
Oh that looked like lots of fun! I am personally not keen on Marvel but Mr B and Miss C are huge Marvel fans! How cute do those burgers look! #KCACOLS
Wow what a fab event to attend, as an ex-events organiser I think it would be great fun to plan and execute such a lovely event. Good to see that the movie was really good too! #KCACOLS
What a great idea for a date night for the both of you. Looks like you had a really good time. We never get to go to the cinema anymore with the babies :(. Glad you had a good time, lucky thing, and what a nice bonus meeting a fellow blogger! Xxx #KCACOLS

What a fun night! This is the perfect type of event to escape to as a couple, away from the children for just one night. I love events like these, it looks like you were all really well looked after and had a great time. I’m sure the film was pretty great too! 😉 Emily #KCACOLS

This looks like a lot of fun, and not just because of the bags of sweets (ok maybe mostly because of the sweets for me!) I’ve never been to a private screening. #KCACOLS

I love XMen! I have never been to a private screening before it looked like a great night I am loving superhero’s of late, there are a few shows I am addicted to! #KCACOLS
Mommy Muddling says
What a fabulous night! Looks like so much fun. I was just asking my son what his favorite super hero is the other day and he couldn’t pick, too many good options…and I have to say, I feel the same way. I just don’t know but perhaps Superman because he was the first real superhero I remember from my childhood! I loved your video, too. Great job!
Grant R says
Sounds like a fab night and a cosy cinema. Food looks delicious too! We bloggers are a lucky bunch 🙂
