Cate Blanchett and Alec Baldwin, who play Jasmine and Hal French, in Blue Jasmine
As it turns out though, we headed to The Bloor Street Diner for a light lunch, and took advantage of the restaurants great movie deal, where diners can purchase 2 cinema tickets for $15 rather than the regular $28 charged upstairs at Cineplex, conveniently located upstairs where Blue Jasmine was playing. A special treat for passing a phenomenal 1,000,000 hits on Scrumpdillyicious the night before, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to celebrate the auspicious event with a meal out and afternoon at the movies.
