- Favorite Film

- Coffee (for me), cookie dough bites (for my wife), and skittles or sour patch kids (for my son)
- Favorite cinema memory
So many to choose from, but the top has to be on April 25th, 2019 when I took my son out of school early so we could rewatch Avengers Infinity War with enough time to go to the movies to see the premiere of Avengers Endgame. It was (and still is) the only time I took my son out of school early and it was totally worth it!
