If you are an ardent cinema goer, then you would have seen all kinds of antics. I have been a movie fan and going to cinemas as long as I can remember. You will not believe what myself and wife witnessed today.
While waiting for the movie to start (btw, the movie we were watching was Limitless), as usual, the cinema lights will be dimmed. At that point in time, a lady walked in and sat 2 seats away from us. As soon as she sat down, she started to exercise her head. Yeah – exercise her head – all the bending (all directions), shaking, etc. As she continued, I was thinking in my mind if she might do some stretching exercises.
To make the experience more interesting, as soon as the movie commenced, her friend walked in and sat between me and her friend. She came with many many bags and had to squeeze through the seats to get to her friend. As soon as this lady sat down, they began to chat. Unbelievable is it not? They chatted and chatted. It continued until I could tolerate no more and asked them to stop. Good thing they stopped instantaneously.
After about 10 mins, I felt as if the seats were vibrating. It went on for at least 20 mins. I was puzzled. Then I noticed it was because the lady next to me (with the many bags) was shaking her leg.
Just when I thought I have seen it all, these two really proved me wrong.
By the way, the other weirdest experience in a cinema is having people bring durians into the hall. What happened next? That is another story for another time.
Good night folks.
p/s: if you’ve not seen Limitless, it is recommended! Go see it.
