Cinema

The lights switched off.

When the lights goes off and the movie starts, you suddenly forget that you are on another continent, and surprisingly feel at home. You get sucked into this black hole and immense yourself with the movie plots and emotional offerings.

The lights switched on.

Movie has ended. Plot lines all neatly concluded. You suddenly gain consciousness of where you are. You look around and you feel lost. Disorientated if you may. Then it strikes you. You are thousands of miles away from home.

Interesting place.. this cinema.
