Today I went to the theatre to see the Avengers: Endgame by myself. Normally this is a movie I would have liked to see with friends, but that just wasn’t in the cards this time. My friends have already seen the film with their children. Any other friends I could go with were not interested in the film.
I found myself with some free time in the afternoon and went and watched it at a nearly empty theatre. Being nearly empty meant that I could arrive quite late and not have to kill time at the theatre. I discovered that they had reserved seats for this film and I could have reserved my tickets online. I did check the available seating online and I knew it was going to be empty. So I went to the theatre and found that there is no longer a ticket booth and I might as well have gotten the tickets printed at home.
I enjoyed the film, but with so few people, there was very little atmosphere in the theatre. I distinctly heard one loud cackling voice to my right, and perhaps a guffaw or two to my left.
Seeing the movie alone was not Today’s Perfect Moment, nor was seeing it in an empty theatre. I can’t even claim that using my Scene points–thereby making it free–was it either. Today’s Perfect Moment is really about deciding at the last minute and getting it done. There is a lot of freedom to just acting and not thinking.
