On Friday, when everyone else was shopping during Black Friday, my family and I went to see The Hunger Games, Catching Fire. We thought it would be a great day to go to the movies. It was PACKED! There were seven of us and the only seats available were in the front row. I haven’t sat in the front row in 30 years. So, we sat down and I realized I couldn’t see the whole screen at once…this just wasn’t going to do. Therefore, we had to scatter throughout the theater. My three kids sat together, my parents sat together, and my husband and I sat together. Not exactly a family outing but we had no choice.
Since my husband and I moved back about eight rows I was able to get a better view. The first few minutes it seemed like the colors were too vibrant and almost too strong for my liking. Once the movie got started and I was really into watching it my eyes adjusted to the brightness.
One thing I did notice…the previews are very loud. When the movie actually started I could hear it but not well enough to capture all the words. Normally I don’t need assistance, such as captions, but it would have been helpful this time.
I suppose with Usher Syndrome (Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and hearing loss), my movie going experience will change every time. I will just need to plan ahead a little better.
