A) Cinema or Video?
I don’t like going to the cinema very much myself, but my friends all love it, and so I often find myself sitting in the dark trying to hear the conversation on the screen while sweet papers and crisp packets are being opened enthusiastically all around me.
It is this which makes me take a video and watch it at home. Then there is no risk of getting angry because you hear everything that is going on.
Another problem is that I always do my best to find a seat with a good view of the screen during the advertisement. Then, two minutes before the main film to begin, the seat in front of me will be taken by a heavy boxer who blocks out most of the screen and by this time it’s too late to move.
I know this isn’t really the point.
Cinema fans talk about the extra pleasure when their excitement and feelings are shared with others. I must admit there’s often a very good atmosphere in the cinema, and I’m probably too sensitive to these things: it only takes up one person making stupid comments to spoil the whole occasion. So, I think I’ll stick to my video!
