The Carl Cox of popcorn.

Easily visible from Stevenage station is the Stevenage Leisure Park. So long as your idea of leisure is cinema/gym/bowling/McDonald’s/nightclub, you’ve come to the right place.

The jewel in its crown is the multi-multi-screen Cineworld. I picked my son from there at the weekend. He’d just seen Iron Man 2 (verdict: great!). As I loitered in the foyer, trying hard not look as though I was there to pick up girls, I looked up and saw this rather menacing chap wearing what looked like a welding mask in a DJ booth overlooking the¬†exorbitantly-priced snacks.

DJ Popcorn-Popper in the house.

It turns out that he’s neither welding, DJing or hatching a plan to take over the world; he’s making fresh popcorn which then somehow descends into the units below ready to be consumed by hungry movie-goers.

I swear that window wasn’t there before. It all seems to be part of a plan for Cineworld to show the world that their popcorn is made fresh on the premises, rather than shipped in pre-popped (which is what they might have done before – allegedly).

While I was at it, I aimed my phone’s camera at the mirrored ceiling. This is what you get when you do such a thing. Can you spot me?

Looking up, looking down.
