What Did I Just Watch?

Now showing.

Next attraction.

Coming soon.

I am imagining myself walking to the ticket booth to watch a movie. Boy! I missed going inside that dark, huge TV room. This is the least I can do for now.

Some years back....

Melted butter smell fills the air as I near the snack bar. I went past it. I need the ticket first for the 8pm show. I made a mental note of what flavor I will get : white cheddar cheese, extra butter and extra white cheddar cheese powder pour over halfway. My mouth waters with just the thought of it. Oh and extra napkins because those powder stick like crazy to the fingers. Iced tea or water? I will come to that decision when I reach the snack counter.

"The 8pm show, please. Eye-level for one." I relay to the man in the ticketing booth. I looked over the monitor as he gives me the choices available for seats. I pointed the one I wanted - a seat away at least from possible movie watchers who are on a date.

The ticket pops out of the printer, the man in the booth tears it off and hands it over to me.

Let us give him a line. "Enjoy the movie, ma'am". Oh, but I really am not sure if they say it.

I read the seat number I am assigned in, memorized it or attempted to memorize it and slips the ticket in the back pocket of my jeans as I walked away from the booth and made my way back to the snack bar. I have ample time to still buy snacks unhurriedly.

I settled for iced tea. Large. But promised myself to just take sips as I would not want to be going to the comfort room often.

I walked in to the Cinema 7 when they said it is ok to finally go in. I wanted to settle down quickly, get comfortable and start popping the popcorn in my mouth. Trailers came on, made a mental note which ones to look forward to and then the main movie starts.

Stay safe.

That was what they all say to each other in the first part of the movie. Everyone is apparently going home. Twenty minutes into the movie, I am hooked. Wide-eyed. Enjoying and squirming in my chair at the same time. Entertained, amused.

An hour and twenty five minutes later, I stared at the screen. Getting off the seat needed a little effort.

It was just a movie.

I got up. Walked slowly out.

What in the world did I watch? The Purge.

Have you watched one movie and you walked out of the movie house with all your inner being feeling like screaming? It was not a horror movie. I would have laughed some few times if it was.

But the thing is... Something in me says that what happened in the movie can happen in real life eventually. Lols.

That once a year holiday the new government allows killing for 12 hours.

Ever watched anything that shocked you before and you found yourself walking out heavy?

I once watched a horror movie “the conjuring" it was scary but I watched it all alone and I was also planning to download the part 2 and 3 until I discovered it was based on true life story. I just stopped watching it

Hey, everything is on point! This is exactly how I felt whenever I enter the cinema area. It sounds weird but it's nostalgic already, as if it's something that we did 20 years ago. Huhu. The last film that I watched inside the movie theater was Miracle In Cell No. 7 because I had a free pass for the 2019 MMFF. I miss those days. Huhu.

The film also hit me hard. My eyes were popping when I got out of the theater. But the Korean version was sadder.

I liked that one compared to the rest of the movies that came out from that franchise. Simple yet horrifying. Didn't you have any idea what the movie was about when you came in? haha. I have a friend who also loves watching random movies all alone, to the point na kilala na siya ng mga kahera haha.

Oh. I have watched that also but not in the cinema, just on the DVD copy. I haven't watch the latest part, though. My reaction there was just so-so, but when I watched Insidious and Conjuring, that's where I screamed my lungs out and trembled on my seats. 😂

I actually enjoyed watching "The Purge", although the idea of solving world population by organizing a program where people would be able to kill without committing a crime felt sickening to me. I don't think I have ever been shaken to this extent while seeing any movie. The closest I have been was Annabelle - the creation.

Sometimes I think that all fiction we watched in movies or series is based on true events, more than the creativity of the writer. This world is crazy, so we never know what is real or not. On the other hand, gosh I need to go back to the cinema again I truly need it.

Haven't watcheda movie from the movie theater.

Haven't watched 'The Purge' But the feeling you felt after watching the kovie is totally different and normal combined. It makes you doubt the future and makes you worry about protection.

So, you watched a horror movie in a theater on your own? Very brave. You could never get me to watch horror films, not on cable, or Netflix, especially not in a movie house! But I love watching movies on my own.
