I'd be mad too that movie sucks
Back at Rebellion for two years running we'd buy out an entire cinema screen for that year's LOTR release, followed by a restaurant meal. Was quite a nice way of doing it, given the nature of the company most employees had at least a passing interest!
Def. not our parties.... /shrug
That's what we had as well (new company now with remote position so no more parties for me). It was okay. I usually just showed up with an hour with my gf as an excuse to drses up and then left to go to dinner reservations.
