Re: “Rooftop Cinema

It could have been amazing. If I had dressed properly, brought a tall chair, and the screen was bigger. The first problems would have been managable. I had a nice blanket and an ok seat when the guy with the big head was at just the right angle. The biggest problem was the smallest screen. Picture the movie projector screen from middle school. That's about it. Maybe a touch bigger. I went to a movie in the park and they had this amazing inflatible screen. Huge and more than adaquate, and those movies were free. Bottom line is GET THERE EARLY, dress in layers, and bring your tall campfire chairs (the ones with cup holders). Finally, the sound was pretty good, but I couldn't hear one word of the introduction from the PA. The movie I saw had an orchestra. It was lovely. I want to do it again, but do it right. Plus I felt, the movie was over sold and a lot of people were basically resigned to stand in the oddest spots to find a reasonable view, which lead to a mass exodus at about 20 minutes into the movie. What a waste of $8, with the money raised from ticket sales and concessions, I believe that the investment of an adequate screen is not too much to ask.
