Catching a Movie


video


It was late on a rainy Saturday afternoon.  Ali felt bored.  He didn’t feel like cleaning up even though his apartment could use a good cleaning.  He didn’t feel like going out for a walk.  He didn’t want to get his shoes wet.  He wanted to play soccer but his game had been called off because of the heavy rain and lightning.  He had surfed the net and played some video games but he lost interest after a while.  He picked up the newspaper on the coffee table and started flipping through it.  Then he had an idea.  He picked up his cell phone and called his friend, Amy.  “Hi, Amy.  It’s Ali,” he said when she answered. “What are you up to tonight?”  “Oh, hi, Ali. Nothing so far,” she replied.  “What have you got in mind?”  “I was thinking of taking in a movie downtown,” said Ali.  “Yeah,” answered Amy.  “I’m up for that.  What do you want to see?”  “How about that film with Sean Penn and Naomi Watts,” suggested Ali. “It’s based on a true story about a CIA agent whose identity is revealed to the public. I think it’s called Fair Game.  I hear it’s pretty good.”“It was good,” said Amy, ”I saw it last week.  You should see it but not tonight. Have you seen Bridesmaids? ” “No, I haven’t seen it yet. It sounds like a chick flick but I did hear that it was really funny.  I was thinking about the new superhero movie about Thor,” suggested Ali.  “Either film would be fine with me,” replied Amy. “Why don’t we see how long the line-ups are and decide when we get there? Are they both playing at the Imperial tonight?”  “Yes, they are,”said Ali “I just checked the newspaper. Do you want to go for a quick bite before we see the movie?” “Sure,” said Amy. “Let’s leave around six so we can eat, walk to the cinema and catch the late show.”  Canadians are movie-goers.  In other words, they love to go to the movies.  In fact, Toronto is home to one of the biggest film festivals in the world.  We call a person who watches a lot of movies, a movie buff.  People still go to movie theatres to see films even though they could watch the movies at home on their televisions or computers.  Today you can even watch movies in your car or on your cell phone.  However, I think you need to have superpowers to watch a movie on a cell phone or ipod.  It’s interesting that people still go to watch movies in the theatre when they have so many options.  I like to see movies on the big screen if the movie has special effects or beautiful visual scenes. And sitting in a movie theatre is an enjoyable way to spend a rainy evening whether you’re battling evil with Thor, or laughing at the comedic antics of a group of Bridesmaids.
