I love going to the movies. There's this ritual of buying the ticket, get some popcorn, maybe, and then walk into a somewhat dimly lit room, with red seats facing the silver screen. There's a ceremonial that ritualises the act of watching a film. So more often than not, when I'm watching a movie, I'm aware that I am watching a movie; everything happens in an out-of-real-life compartment of my brain which lets me know, deep down, that I'm safe whatever happens up there.
