went to the movies this afternoon to see life of pi.
Storyline taken from a website: Based on the best-selling novel by Yann Martel, is a magical adventure story centering on Pi Patel, the precocious son of a zoo keeper. Dwellers in Pondicherry, India, the family decides to move to Canada, hitching a ride on a huge freighter. After a shipwreck, Pi finds himself adrift in the Pacific Ocean on a 26-foot lifeboat with a zebra, a hyena, an orangutan and a 450-pound Bengal tiger named Richard Parker, all fighting for survival.
i never would have picked this movie myself and until yesterday never heard of it. surprisingly it was very good and i was enjoying it until some loud, young kids accompanied by adults rolled in and thought they were at home. several of us gave them the half turn, but they didn’t get the message. i guess if they act like that at home then it’s too late to train them when they are out.
the theater was also nice to be so small. operated by one woman who sold the tickets, popped the popcorn, tore the tickets and answered the phone. the seats were leather (or something similar) with high backs. it was very clean too. i dropped a few pieces of popcorn on the floor and i actually picked them up. i expect some popcorn to be on the floor at movie theaters, but i’m not so sure about this one. it was spotless and i didn’t want to be the one to make it unclean.
i forgot to get a photo of the theater we actually visited, so the above photo is of another one closer to home.
