The Palace Cinema

Merkel and Mytrle saw "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest" recently. This is the third in a trilogy of Swedish films of the famous "Millenium Series" of novels by Stieg Larsson. The first film of the series "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" was probably the best. The second lacked plausibility and direction and the third was comparatively tame and drawn out, but tied up all the loose ends. The character of Lisbeth Salander, the tattood computer nerd with an aversion to attachment and heaps of attitude, is still a winner.

The Palace Cinema off Rundle Street provides food and beverages in its waiting area and at the front of the cinema. The hot chocolate was $4.00 but Merkel had his with a cake for the special price of $7.00. The drink came in a LaVazza coffee cup and saucer. It was topped with a white froth and a sprinkle of the chocolate powder and it was creamy and chocolaty.
