I finally made my way to the english speaking movie theatre in the Stuttgart area that I wrote about months and months ago about. Last week I took myself to see the popluar movie Star Trek and was not disappointed at all.
Finding the theatre was very simple and easy to access. Taking the S5 toward Vaihingen from the main station (hbf) is all you need to do. After hopping off the train, I was at the movie theatre within 5 minutes of walking. Very easy to find and access. After settling in, I was able to enjoy a completely german speaking free movie. It was and is bliss for english speakers. There were a lot of us english speakers present but I noted that there were a few Germans in the cinema as well. I also noticed that during the funny scenes, the Germans (for the most part) didn't get it. They would catch the joke too late or not at all.
In any case, I noticed a marked difference about this town as I made my way to the train station. At first I didn't know what was so different about the people in Vaihingen but I knew there was some difference. I finally got it after waiting at the street light. The majority of people around me were speaking english! I was totally thrown for a minute as I digested this observation. I guess it made sense for corso cinema international to set up shop in this town.
In any case, the movie rocked and I knew and know nothing about the original Star Trek. I did however love the Next Generation. I have to admit that I found the main character who played Captain Kirk ok in the looks department. I read many reviews where girls were swooning over him. I did fancy the character who played Spock though. He is super hot! Yum!!!!
