Watching An Old Movie in An Old Theatre

Last weekend, Jessica and I watched Casablanca at the Tampa Theatre in Downtown. Honestly, what more can an old soul ask for? The interior of the theatre looked like something out of an entrancing old-fashioned dream. You really do step into another time when you walk through the doors and you get a feel for the decade in which it was open. The Tampa Theatre opened in 1926 and despite the reconstruction throughout the years, its original allure still remains intact. 

Before heading off to watch Casablanca, Jessica and I had a brief photography session. I encouraged her to bring her Canon DSLR with her. I, on the other hand, used my new Sony RX100 V to take photographs. I had some trouble with my camera because I've only had it for a few weeks and I'm still unfamiliar with all the settings, but by the end of the day I managed to find the setting that I liked. Her and I indulged in butter croissants and cinnamon lattes at Caffeine Roasters before walking a block or two to the theatre. We were going to eat lunch and order coffee at Oxford Exchange, but the wait was too long so we just browsed the beautiful books there instead before driving to Downtown.

Of course, it rained. This is the second time, consecutively, in which Jessica and I have been caught in the middle of a storm. I'm expecting rain the next time we choose to meet up. Although we will probably be studying and tucked away inside of a warm coffee shop so the rain won't impact us much. Even so, we didn't let the rain put a damper on our mood. We decided to eat dinner at Boca and the food did not disappoint.
