I went to a movie.

October 25, 2021


Lloyd and I went to a movie Sunday afternoon. In a theater. And – this is the big thing – I stayed awake the whole time!

I haven’t gone to a movie in forever. Lloyd and Samith go on dates all the time, and it’s there thing. Not me so much. There are so many reasons it’s preferable for me to wait until I can watch it at home – I can pause it when I need to pee / I can turn on closed captioning when I’m chewing / I can look up who that actor is right away / etc. The theater, though? Well, the sound is never quite right, I get really sleepy during parts, and people get grumpy when I yell out, “Turn on the captions!” (Just kidding.)

We saw Dune, part 1. I saw the 1980s version and have read the books, and I really enjoyed it. It was nice to have the theater experience, and I just may go to another movie sometime in the next couple years.

    What I love about going to the movie theater is that I CAN’T look at my phone or go on my laptop. I must watch an entire movie uninterrupted. It feels so good to focus on just one thing for a couple hours.

    I really liked this Dune. I hope they make the second part. From what I understand, it hasn’t even been given the go-ahead.
