Goin' to the Movies at Silverbird Cinemas

Today the plan was to go to Wreck Beach (see April 15 post) but the weather just was not cooperating. Since it was a rainy day, we decided to go to the Silverbird Galleria to do a little shopping in the bookstore and go to the movies. The Media Store occupies the entire second floor and sells books, music CDs, DVDs and has a simple but stylish coffee shop in it. We bought a map of Ireland for our upcoming trip and a Nigeria map book, which would have been real handy to have when we went outside of Lagos a few weeks ago. After a little shopping we ran into some friends, Kevin and Susan (who had planned the rained-out boat trip), and went in to see Oceans 13. The cost of the movie... a whopping 1500 Naira (~$11.50 US)!

To see what is playing at the theater go to:

Here are a few pictures of the mall. It is four stories with the Media Store on the second floor and the movie theater on the fourth floor. On the ground floor was an interesting type of ice-less skating rink. Before people started skating, the maximum number was two people on the "ice" at any time, they sprayed down the floor with some liquid to make it slippery. Very different!
