Anita has walked out of the theatre before but not from a cinema yet.

As a youngster, Anita played drums in Deep Purple. Not the original band though - the band name was quickly changed when it became clear that the name was already taken. More recently, Anita has discovered Chai tea and buys it by the crate load.
