Yallabina is this Egyptian website which gives you an update on what's happening in town be it movies, nightlife, or any other gig!
My 7 yr old had been pestering us to take him to see Kung Fu Panda for a while. So Thursday night, looked up Yallabina and found it running at Rennaisance Nile City for 4 shows including a 10 o'clock one at night. Called up the hall to get confirmation on the timings, and, post dinner set-off to watch the Panda do the drill!
Drove through incredible traffic - what's with Cairo and traffic jams in summer? I though the Cairenes all headed out of town, but this was like the city had descended on Downtown and the Corniche. After braving one and a half hours of traffic, reached the hall, only to find that the movie is running in a morning show! Had a grumpy son for "no movie" and an even grumpier husband for hours spent in traffic...
Moral of the story : WYSWYG
What you see is what you get! Even if you do refer to Yallabina, just take it with a fistful of salt!! And even when you call the hall, just hope that they know what they're talking about! Or just blame it on fate!
