I haven't been to the cinema since 2004 and before that it was 1999, but does this make me techincally dead?
I don't like the blatant codification that both high and low art in cinemas demand of the viewer. i also hate 'seeing' films on outdoor screens. 'Films' really are quite a private thing in terms of experience and comprehension, I don't mean porno films LOLZNUTSZOO but cathing something on the telly late at night/Sunday afternoon, at a time when there is no ritual involved.
I used to always hate it at University when the people I shared with 'stayed in a watched a video' and some extra people would come round and sit there like a stroke victim collective watching Trainspotting for the 43rd time. Of course now with EVERYTHING AVAILABLE AT THE TOUCH OF A BUTTON, even this can't be done. Some of my most treasured films were seen, by myself by accident, and mean so much more to me than seeing The Darjeeling Ltd with 43 people in Sebadoh t-shirts. The only exception to the rule was seeing Potemkin in Trafalgar Square with PSB doing the music. That was good, but an exception.
Films then, enjoyed on the hop, not with a crowd.
