C is for Cinema

I love cinema and all meaning of the word. Whether that means the theatre where films are shown or the actual films themselves, I love it all.

But this post is going to be more focussed on what I love about going to the actual cinema. I love watching films at the cinema because that’s the best place to watch them. Sitting in the dark with the big screen and the surround sound – it’s the perfect place to escape from the real world for a few hours. It’s great to go to the cinema with friends or family and then you can discuss what the film afterwards, but I don’t mind going to the cinema on my own. In fact, going solo to the cinema is often the only way I get to see what I want to see.

I have a lot of good memories of films seen at the cinema. I vividly remember watching The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring in the cinema with my mum and gran. I was only ten years old and I remember clinging to my mum’s arm whenever the black riders appeared and when the Cave Troll came along during the Mines of Moria scene. Lord of the Rings has been a love of mine ever since and seeing the films in the cinema was a big part of that.

Yeah, I don’t always get to see everything I want to at the cinema, it might be because I’m busy or that my local cinemas don’t show everything but then that’s what’s so great about online services like Netflix. Still, you can’t beat sitting in the dark, in front of a big screen with a load of other film fans.

  1. I agree that going to see a movie in a theater transports you to a different world…even if it is only for a couple of hours. We found a movie theater near us that has reclining seats with big arm rests. It’s the most comfortable theater…plus the sound is phenomenal! Hope you have a chance to see a good movie this weekend!

    1. That sounds like the most amazing and comfy cinema! I’ve been to one where it’s like two seater sofas which is nice.
      Aww thank you! Hope you find something great to watch too!
