Just Before the Movie
This is Dundrum and early in the day - a good time to watch a movie if you want to avoid a crowded cinema! This image is on the very edge of possible with no flash. Just 6400 ASA setting , a thirtieth of a second and some luck. Cinema is one of my great loves but movies are not always screened in the best environments. Dundrum cinema complex is good enough though. This is very early in the day and only a few of us took the advantage of cheaper tickets and a quiet audience. I found it hard to get used to the new system - buying tickets from any outlet with a till. No booking office! You can book online but it just didn't seem right. Psychologically, a film is like a dream and often dreams seem to do what films do (or is it the other way around) - they jump from location to location. You know ... all of a sudden in the dream, I was somewhere else.
