Weekly Column Kanda This and That 312
Thank you for coming back.
Though a little late, I went to see “Bohemian Rhapsody.” It was great! After the 135 minutes of the movie, now I know why this movie has been labelled a “blockbuster.” It was March 20 (Wed) at TOHO Cinemas Nihombashi in CORED Muromachi 2. It was the first time for me to purchase a movie ticket on the Internet. So convenient. You can choose a seat you want two days before! I also could get a ladies’ day discount. Therefore, I didn’t have to hurry to get a good seat and I could have a relaxing walk for about 650 meters, a perfect distance for walking.
Then the movie I went to was a “cheering screening,” which means that the audience were allowed to sing, talk, clap their hands, and wave a light. Before the screening, I thought I didn’t want to be in a noisy crowd during the movie, but it was actually fun! When the audience erupted into applause at the start of the screening and for each song, it raised my excitement. I didn’t care about the people around me singing. The place gave me a just-right level of uplifting feeling! I guess the person who was most excited in the audience was my sister-in-law, who is 10 year older than me. She was so excited and cheering so much. She is the generation of Queen. Good for her!
