Last Friday I went to see the film Fifty Shades of Grey in the cinema 1 day after the première. If you’ve read my post about me getting ready for this film, you know that I wrote it right before I actually left the house. Before I went off to get my Fifty Shades on, I felt the need to share it with you and told you that I have not read the book yet.

But from time to time I can watch a Dutch movie if the storyline sounds good. So I did yesterday. Since I had to be in Amsterdam city centre for a meeting, I thought why not take this opportunity to go see a movie at the Pathé cinema in the city centre, giving the fact that I almost always go to the cinema in Amsterdam Southeast.
