7:40 PM: beginning to see the light
sven & i saw a matinee of "batman begins," and while it was a wildly adequate film less appalling than many others, the most surprisingly great thing about it was the actual theatre experience itself: it was cheaper, quieter, cleaner, friendlier and with more considerate people than any other movie i've seen in the last several years. and we played air hockey & dance dance revolution, too. :) i had almost forgotten why one goes to movie theatres anymore, but with "war of the worlds" next on the agenda, it seems like it might be a pleasant summer diversion again.
