Cinerama!

Last night, I went to see Oz at the Cinerama!

It happened to be conveniently on a bus route that I was on, and I had been wanting to go there anyways. It’s a historic theater that a Seattleite rescued from destruction and updated. So, it has both the latest viewing technology and old timey projectors for special events. The seating isn’t stadium, but there’s a balcony. So, the whole place is hip retro inside, with all of these movie and TV pieces on display that were donated or part of the benefactor’s collection.

One of the main draws of Cinerama is their chocolate popcorn. It tasted a bit like Cocoa Krispies. I got it mixed with regular popcorn for a yummy salty-sweet combo. I only managed to eat the top 1/4, and that was my dinner last night!

The movie was beautiful (I didn’t like the changes to the plot, nor did I like Franco’s performance…but he’s still pretty to look at), and visiting the Cinerama felt like a real experience vs. the typical theater.
